    I recently bought an Anker Ultra Compact Bluetooth keyboard (to replace one I previously owned). After pairing it with my computer, I discovered that the keyboard interferes with my wireless mouse (a Logitech). Both are fine individually, but there is major interference (delays, repetition of letters) when I try to use both. I'm confused because my last keyboard worked just fine with this mouse. The only difference is that I used to use a MacBook. I've already tried a few things: uninstalling/reinstalling; making sure drivers are up to date; and trying it in different places in the house, but nothing works. I don't know what to do next!

    Are both receivers using USB2 or 3? If you have both you can try one in USB3 and one in USB2 or just move the ports around.

    My keyboard and mouse don't actually use the USB ports.

    Do you have Bluetooth built in the motherboard? I am talking about the receivers for the wireless mouse and Bluetooth keyboard that plug in USB ports.

    Yes, the Bluetooth antenna is built into my laptop.
