Hello, just wondering if anybody else has issues with wacom tablets and wireless devices. I have a wireless keyboard and mouse setup and have just got a new wacom tablet. The problem is that the tablet needs to be on at least a 25 degree angle otherwise well....the mouse pointer goes ballistic and selects everything and will not stay still, it's has even shut the computer down on me. I had to watch as it selected the start menu clicked shut turn off computer and went to shut down :thumbsup: I cannot regain control once it decides to have a fit. It does work fine on my laptop (no wireless devices, save a PCMCIA wireless network adapter) but it does the same when I boot into linux or solaris. So i was thinking it must be wireless cross-talk between the keyboard/mouse and receiver, but that doesn't explain the angle solution...or does it?

Is there a way to change the settings to strengthen/weaken the signal?

We're going to make the merry-go-round go faster, so everyone needs to hang on tighter-just to keep from being thrown to the wolves.

there doesn't seem to be efizzer, there is only settings for the pressure on the nib and eraser but changing these doesn't do much it just alters the stroke depth. Might just can the wireless keyboard/mouse setup it's gettimg old and shabby anyway. Cheers. Oh and sorry mods I wasn't sure where to put this topic, thanks.

Is the Wacom tablet you have wireless?

I have a Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard and I've been using my friend's Wacom Graphire3 off and on over the summer. I haven't had any of the problems you've described, but perhaps your receiver for your keyboard/mouse is too close to your tablet? I keep my receiver a good 2 feet from everything else on my machine, just in case disruptions occur. I also don't know why you would have to angle your tablet like you describe, and that's what made me think of your wireless receiver. Perhaps you should reinstall the drivers? Now I'm just throwing things out there, but I figure I'd try.

Good luck with everything.

The receiver is probably getting multiple reflections of the mouse signal from the Wacom surface (he said trying to sound like he knew about Wacoms - I'm going to have to get one!). Perhaps you can relocate the receiver so there is a different angle between receiver-mouse and receiver-wacom if you see what I mean? Just relocating to the other side of the monitor might be enough.... :thumbsup:
