    :confused: Hoping someone can give me an answer to why my husband is able to control my cursor from his laptop in another room. Have wireless network. Called HP-my new pc mfr. They said to call Netgear-Router Mfr.-Netgear said not their problem. I have two products. One is PC Concepts Airboard Mgr. Keyboard. Other is Wireless infared Mouse Contro.-Yahoo-no other mfr name lised. Cannot locate any reset buttons. Spoke to Networking company, man said signals are crossing and I need to re-set my keyboard/mouse receiver and Yahoo receiver. Would this be the only answer?

    That may work or there may be no answer if the signals for your keyaboard and network are on the same frequenct you are out of luck, You may be able to chnage the channel by going into the routers configurations and changing the channels that it recives information on wireleslly . Your husband will have to chnage the channel he is reciving on so that both are on the same channel this may fix the problem . You instruction book should tell you how to do this.

    NETWORKING WASN'T THE PROBLEM. CHANGED OUT MY MOUSE CONTROL THIS EVENING PER A SUGGESTION AND IT FIXED THE PROBLEM. WE BOTH HAD SAME IDENTICAL MOUSE CONTROLS AND I THINK THIS WAS A BIG PART OF IT. I AM GOING TO GET A RADIO CONTROL WIRELESS NOW.. THAT SHOULD WORK. IT IS JUST UNFORTUNATE AS I REALLY LIKED THIS OTHER ONE.
    THANKS FOR ADVICE.
