    Hi

    I Have had this problem since upgrading to windows 7 /64

    When i type using keyboard for whatever reason the internet wifi drops. I am using a TP link unit. It is more apparent when i am typing emails in windows live mail.

    Is this a problem that anyone has experienced. I have switched from wireless keyboard to wired. What actually happens is even offline the keyboard itself drops out, i start receiving a note/tone each time i press the keyboard buttons when it has dropped out. When online if the keyboard drops out the wireless drops with it.

    I have to kick in the keyboard again by using the mouse to click the screen. The mouse also drops out when scrolling using the
    wheel. again i have to click the screen to reinstate

    It has dropped six times typing this note.

    thanks

    I assume there is a little USB connected radio ("dongle") that communicates with the wireless keyboard. When you switched keyboards did you also disconnect the "dongle"?

    Yes, I have hard wired USB keyboard now. A friend said it may be the internal wireless adapter. I did not know it had one.
