Wireless mouse that can be used for long range?

Found 11th Jul 2012
Hi guys and girls, I am looking for a wireless mouse that can be used for around 30 ft, would any one in here be kind enough to share theirs knowledge with me? Or any ideas on any that can be use for long range..

I will also like to ask whether if having a router in the same room, could it effect the wireless mouse in anyway? and what could be the best mouse to get to overcome this problem..

Hope to hear from you guys..

Thanks...

Why? At 20m you will barely see the screen let alone the pointer.

Hi smelly onion, I have recently connected my desktop up to my 50in tv.. Do you have any ideas?

20 meters thats 65ft...........think you will need a bionic eye to go with it (_;)

I use a cheap Trust one that works perfectly well in my 18ft living room.

I'm not sure if it will work in your 65ft long warehouse though, I have no way of testing it in my house

Hi predikuesi, could you tell me if there are any signs of lags using your maximum range?

Mr clever, thank you for pointing this out.. As you can see in the message it says arounds 20meters, clearly you did not read it propertly.. X)

Your going to struggle to find a wireless mouse for that distance. why not tell people the set-up you want and ask for alternatives.

Not that I am aware of. Everything seemed to function perfectly.

Yes.. I am afraid so.. It's might be a better idea if I move it closer, you have any idea which mouse could be used for long range?

I've just tested my Logitech M305 at around 50ft and it works well.

No lags at all for me.

Do remember though that what works for one may not work for another because the signal strength can vary because of a number of factors that affect the quality of a wireless signal.

I can hardly see the pointer on my 60" screen at distance about 20ft so god knows what your up to!

Anyway get a USB entension cable and keep the receiver closer to you,

Or if you have a iOS device you can download a Logitech mouse and keyboard app which works on wifi??

Op, why am I not surprised you missed the sarcasm in that post. You seem to have missed a lot of other points made in your thread asking for help and knowledge.
