Any tips on how to improve my Logitech mouse’s reliability?

Sometimes, but not always, my mouse misses or doesn’t respond to my movements.

Here’s my computer specs: Windows 7 with Firefox. Logitech wireless M505/B605 with a good battery. I also have 6GB of memory. I also have a Surfboard SB6141 modem, linked to a Cisco wireless Linksys E1200 router.

Any tips on how to improve my mouse’s reliability?

    As far as I could find out the Logitech Wireless M505 is operating on the 2.4GHz frequency so you certainly should keep it as far away from your wireless network as possible ~ which is probably hard in itself since you already stated you are using WiFi.

    Therefor as Oron suggested keep the receiver and the mouse as close to each other as possible and if it can be achieved away from your WiFi signal (and "line of sight" between your computer/WiFi devices and the router to minimize interference).

    Another method to improve a mouse usually is increasing the USB polling rate, however I have no idea how a wireless receiver/mouse would react to it so I would stay away from that.

      I'm going to start with Oron's suggestion. Thanx for the help!

    I haven't used an identical mouse to yours, but have used similar ones, including from Logitech. Responsiveness problems, in my experience, are due to poor reception or interference. Experiment in positioning the receiver in different locations (perhaps using a short USB extension cable) and also ensure there is nothing immediately next to the receiver or the mouse which can interfere with the signal (in one case, we had major problem until we discovered that our phone was messing up the signal!)

      I moved the receiver a few inches closer and and moved some wiring that was close to the receiver. The back of my computer is a rats nest. I hope it works. Thanx
