Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard 1.1 with Microsoft wirless Optical desktop receiver 2.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello,

    I had this keyboard and receiver for a few months now along with the optical wireless mouse 2000.

    they were working wonderfully, then suddenly the keyboard stops working, the mouse however works fine.

    i removed the batteries and replaced them with new ones and the problem persists, I connected the receiver to another computer and still face the same problem, however after a few days it worked again for like 10 days then suddenly same thing happened.

    Please advise.

  • Make sure that you are using the keyboard at a distance of 6ft or less from the optical receiver.
