Queery about wireless keyboard

  merc. 11:42 31 Mar 2007

Would a wireless keyboard and mouse operate any different if pluged into usb 1 or 2.

Thinking of getting one but computer has only one usb2 and 4 usb1. use usb 2 for external hard drive.

Hi, it would probably work, but with reduced capability in usb1. Why not get a 4 Port USB2 hub, very cheap, then you will have some spare.

I've used a wireless mouse with a USB1 port without a problem. The slower speed of USB1 should not make a difference for keyboard or mouse.

It won`t make any noticeable difference. The USB transmitter draws it`s power from the port and the keyboard and mouse communicate with it. In my experience using a non powered USB hub will cause problems (Powered is OK though)

Thanks all when I get one will try it first on usb1 if happy will leave it there,if not will see what usb2 is like then will proberly get a usb hub.
