    I am currently running two computers in the house through a Motorola cable modem and a D-Link wireless router. I would like to add a wireless keyboard and mouse, but I am unsure if I can due to possible frequency problems. Can I have a number of wireless peripherals set up on my computer or will I experience problems? Ultimately, what I would like to do is to run the wireless router and receiver and to have a wireless keyboard and mouse on both computers. Is this possible?

    Yes, it should work OK. The mouse/keyboard should not interfere with the Wireless LAN at all and the distance for these wireless devices is quite low so as long they are 10 feet apart the two sets should not have issues even if they are the exact same unit.

    wireless keyboards communicate in InfraRed, at lease the ones I've seen. So you do not have to worry as Router communicates in Radio Waves.

    Most use RF as well - works much better.

    However, DO keep a wired keyboard and mouse on hand...you will need it for things like safe mode or other issues where wireless just won't work. Liz
