I have a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 7000 that I am using. Sometimes the cursor just sticks and won't move properly and I can't figure out why. I am trying to use it about 10-12 feet from the tower where the receiver is plugged in. When I use the mouse about 2 feet from the receiver it works fine. I thought this mouse was suppose to cover a 30 foot distance. I also have the router right next to the mouse's wireless receiver and not sure if the 2.4 GHZ Frequency interferes. I have tried new batteries and downloading updated drivers, but had no luck. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I have never managed to get the range they say you can get. I believe if you read it carefully you will see they say:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168261051942.4 GHz Wireless Mini Transceiver
Connect in confidence with up to 30-foot range—even in crowded wireless environments.


Note the Up to 30 feet.

One possible solution is to get a USB extension cable and move the receiver closer to where you use the mouse. Or at least put the Mouses receiver in the front of the computer instead of the back where the metal of the case may be shielding it.

Good Luck
Roger

Thanks Roger! You were spot on with your assessment. I moved the Logitech receiver to the front USB port and now it works fine.
