Hi all,

 

I have been tasked with designing the layout of my workplaces new office building, one requirement that my manager has given me is that each user needs to have a wireless keyboard and mouse, this does raise the concern of cross communication between each set. Can anyone advise on a suitable choice for this situation, we have 8 users who are always within 10m of each other. None of our PCs have Bluetooth so they need to be a USB dongle (Also thanks to our IT provider other than me we have no admin rights on any PC [They got bored of me phoning constantly] so we can't install a USB bluetooth dongle). Each set can not be too expensive either (Preferably less than £60 [$79] per set), we have a very small budget to fit out the full office.

 

Thanks,

Dan

Most if not all wireless keyboards/mice come paired to the dongle supplied. I work in a similar surrounding and no one has ever had the problem of cross communication between devices.

This is the set my office uses:

As far as I know 2.4 GHz USB dongles work by directional beams, so don't put people in straight line behind each other and you should be ok...or use some kind of wall, it pretty much blocks the signal...fish tank might look good, should also block the signal

Thank you for the reply, I will see if I can get this within our budget per user, I guess my issue that I had in the past was due to me only wanting to spend £10 on a full set :)

Im unsure on this, from my knowlege of EE it isn't like this, thank you though. We do have the small issue of 6 of us will have our desks back to back. The joy of a small business :)

We use that set at my job and have no interference...it's the most comfy set I've ever used...I didn't realize till now how inexpensive it is...I'm ordering a set for my house...wish I had done it sooner.

Thank you, I will certainly add this to my list of possibilities. It all depends on how much they add onto it to buy it in the UK though. An example would be the logitech MK550, in the US you can get it for about $70 (£55 ish) wheras in the UK the cheapest in stock price i have found so far is about £90-£100... Hopefully can find one for the right price.
