Note: Some setups will have two wireless receivers - one for the keyboard and the other for the mouse but the setup instructions will otherwise be the same.
While the specific requirements vary from brand to brand, there are two considerations to keep in mind when choosing where to position the receiver:
- Distance from Interference: Keep the receiver at least 8 inches (20 cm) away from sources of interference such as the computer monitor and computer case and other items that may cause interference such as fans, fluorescent lights, metal filing cabinets, etc.
- Distance from Keyboard and Mouse: The receiver should be positioned somewhere between 8 inches (20 cm) and 6 feet (1.8 m) from the keyboard and mouse.
Important: Do not connect the receiver to the computer quite yet. This is a future step when installing the wireless keyboard and mouse.
