Wireless optical mouse hindering and even controlling an other wireless mouse completely

Hello all,

I have a computer with MS wireless optical desktop installed (pc1). On
an other floor in my house there are two other pcs with the same
desktop set installed (pc2 and pc3).

The mouse of pc1 hinders the mouse on pc3 in such a way that normal
use of pc3 is no longer possible. The mouse on pc2 does not hinder the
mouse on pc1 nor does it hinder the mouse on pc3.

The hindering consists of taking over the complete control of the
mouse on pc3 by the mouse on pc1.

All three the pcs run with Win XP Pro NL and are connected to each
other by means of a small network. The firewall that is installed on
every pc has blocked all traffic to and from the software for the
mouse (intellipoint). The mouse on pc1 and the mouse on pc3 are
connected by menas of the USB connector, the mouse on pc2 is connected
by means of the PS2 connector.

Does anyone have an idea on how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, there are only 2 frequency channles available and thus the interference with a third machine. Solution: use a different mouse for the third machine. T

I have 3 logitech mouses none of which will work with another's receiver which implies they all have different frequencies. One would expect that MS would be no different.

I have looked (but not too hard) on the Logitech website (and general sites) for details on cordless mouse operation but there is precious little available.

In your place I would try to exchange the more recently purchased set for another and I would take the other 2 mouses with me to test their frequencies with any replacement set. If necessary you could try a different make. I think Logitech mouses are much more comfortable than MS mouses.

Unfortunately buying another mouse is not an option, because we bought these desktop sets bezause they were a set. What is the point in buying a set if you exchange the mouse for another one?!

First of all I would like to thank you for your swift response. I have found the solution myself in the mean time.

The solution is to press the connect button on the bottom of the mouse and the connect button on the receiver at the same time. This worked for me. If it does not work, reconnect them again.

Thanks again.
