That's odd, both my keyboard and mouse are wireless of some sort, logitek, and 
there does not seem to be any interaction between those and a bluetooth dongle 
that I use instead of a serial cable to an old legacy computer in the 
basement. There is also an atheros card in my router that I use for my lappy 
about half the time.  When I can get that bcm4318 to work at all that is.  
POS.
