Multiple wireless mice





jmraker
If I buy 2 wireless mice of the same model & brand to use on 2 computers next to each other will the 2 mice "transmit" differently so one doesn't control both computers?

I want to get a wireless mouse with a tiny usb receiver, maybe two on black friday and I was wondering if that would be a problem.

I don't believe that it'll be a problem, as I think most mice are programmed to transmit slightly differently to avoid such a problem, although I've never actually tried so I can't be certain.

no problem. the mice will only paired with their respective receiver.

for bluetooth mouse, make sure you pair it with only one computer.

We have had problems at Lan parties with 50+ people having problems with mice crossover, other than that they should be fine. I'm personally not a big fan of wireless mice for gaming, and in general. As you have to deal with batteries, and the mice generally have more problems.
