    wirless Mouse issues (Logitech)

    Hi all,

    I'm having problems with a wireless mouse/keyboard combo.

    I've got an IBM thinkpad that I'm docking with a port replicator. The logitech keyboard/mouse reciever (RF not bluetooth) is plugged into the port replicator.

    the keyboard is performing fine - no problems there, but the mouse is very jerky, and has keeps sticking on areas. The mouse is optical and on an ICE mat.

    I do have a microsoft wireless mouse in the same room in use on another machine but I can't see that being the problem.

    I don't believe it to be the batteries although it is something I'll try in a few minutes.

    Does anyone have any tips on making this mouse work well, eg: os tips, config tips, a good driver etc etc.

    thanks

    Is there a reset button on the reciever? Or a tune style button that lets it choose another code, then wiggle the mouse and press the button again.

    cycled through a few.

    the best way I can describe it is as if the machine was a few steps behind the mouse, but its really jerky in its movements.

    My MX1000 is plugged in via USB and i did have a few teething problems but they are all OK now.

    TBH if you have a MX1000 the Icemat isn't an improvement.

    If I remember correctly is Logitech Cordless Desktop EX 100 (the white version not that I think there is a difference - except minor model numbers)

    it works slightly better with new batteries in, but is still surprisingly jerky and unflowing and laggy with regard to movement.

    I'm wondering if its down to some configuration on the machine.

    ok, I've done a little more work, such as making sure the mouse has new batteries, and that the correct logitech drivers are on the system (which they now are and the mouse properties show up the logitech additional config options)

    I'm still struggling with the mouse "sticking" for example if you stop moving the mouse for say 10 seconds while reading a mail you have to click to "unlock" the mouse or get it moving again, or reset it on the wireless base. The general sluggishness of the mouse is now much better which I attribute to the new batteries, however the constant sticking is a real pain.

    Any further suggestions on why this could be happening ? suggestions on figuring out whats happening ? or how to fix it.

    Thanks.

    worth checking environment - ie are there mobile phones or fans near the mouse or the mouse receiver? also move the mouse receiver away from monitor and speakers.



    Another thing is where is it plugged in - straight into the back of the pc usb port or in via a usb hub?

    good suggestions. The mouse reciver is currently under the screen of the monitor so I will try moving that to a more appropriate location. There are no speakers near by. there is a mobile phone on the same desk but not next to it.

    The reciver is plugged into the back of an Thinkpad Port Replicator via PS2, however the performance does not change when plugged directly into the back of the thinkpad via PS. I have not yet tried USB, this is something I may well try.

    Good tips.

    moved the reciver and its improved it "slightly"

    don't want to use USB as the port replicator only has one usb socket and thats in use.

    To be honest as well, its also a case of principal - why would be such a problem for PS2

    ok further updates on this.

    I've made sure the wireless reciver is well away from the monitor/speakers, and this has improved things a bit.

    I am now leaning strongly that this is a software/driver issue.

    When the laptop is in the docking station, the IBM trackpoint driver appears to be being used, so for example the wheel on the mouse doesn't work at all, I think it is the driver for the mouse / track point not working well with a wireless mouse.

    Is there a better way to manage this ?
