    having problems keeping it connected.
    have a Logitech M5000 bluetooth mouse/keyboard combo, latest drivers from Logitech and Microsoft.
    it has problems dropping the keyboard when in use.
    while actively typing the keyboard will drop connection.
    or if pausing during use, it will not pick up and keep going without a pause.
    vista ultimate 64 SP1.

    I have the same keyboard and mouse combo and I had the same issues constantly
    until I purchased a shielded USB extention cable and brought the USB
    transciever up on top of the desk near the keyboard. It seems to me the range
    of the bluetooth signal doesn't allow it to go through the wood of my desk.

    Hope this helps.

    No such problems with the MS Explorer Mouse and Keyboard Elite and my PC
    (with the tranciever attached) is some 3m (10 feet) from my devices.

    my receiver is approx 6 inches in front of the keyboard on the desktop.
    am using the standard cable that came with the receiver,.
    does not appear to be replaceable.
