cordless mouse interference

This is my setup:

2 PC's, side by side both using Win XP operating systems. Both pc's use a cordless mouse.
The problem is that one mouse becomes lazy and hard to manuever when the other mouse is being used. Basically saying that I cannot use my mouse when my wife is using hers. Has anyone have an remedy for this problem?

That's an interesting problem. Have you tried contacting the manufacturer of the mice to see if they have this as a common support query? I tried Googling but it didn't reveal any solutions.

have you treid changing the channels of the mice - my logitec will operate on two channells, so there shouldn't be any interferance if you have one on channel 1, and the other on channe l2 - should be able to change this in the mice menu on control panel.

Hi there,

I was wondering if u found a solution to this problem because i have the exact same problem when i use my mouse my wife can't do anything, and this is really frustrating, i checked to switch it onto another channel but i can't seem to do that, althought both the mice are Logitech ones.

Hoping to hear from you soon,
