I have searched online without success for my question. Am planning to replace two keyboard/mice with wireless combos from the same vendor. Will there be a conflict if they are close by, say two feet apart (connected to different computers)? Thank you, Mindblower!

Hey MB,

Should be fine. With all these types of wireless devices, the USB dongle seems to specifically matched with the mouse/keyboard it comes with, even if they are the same brand and model number. I've had occasions where I've owned two identical wireless mouses (mice?) and the USB dongle will only work with the mouse it came with, they are not interchangeable.

Thank you Jim. My biggest concern was the close distance. Appreciate you setting things straight, Mindblower!

ps Must remember to place a label on the underneath, so as not to cause problems of a mismatch when moving things around.
