Can you run 2 wireless Microsoft keyboards together?

Hi,

I have 2 computers and one has a Microsoft Wireless Desktop Elite keyboard. I have another Microsoft Wireless Desktop keyboard and mouse and wanted to know if I could plug that into my 2nd machine and run them both together without them interferring?

The machines both sit next to each other.

Thanks
Jon

There should be a button on the bottom to change the channels that they use, so this should be possible.

Hi,

Yes their is a button under both the mouse and keyboard and one on the receiver, I know about changing the channels but was more concerned about this being a process that I would have to do everyday or whether the devices "remember" their channel?

Thanks

They will remember their channel, so unless some new interference pops up, they should only be needed once.

Ok, thanks. I have installed both devices now, though one keyboard is interrupting the other when a key is pushed, the key does not interfere with the other system however. Anyway you will get the points as you did answer the question, so thanks.
