Wireless Keyboard/ Mouse- Range? Line of Sight?

  1. I use my Media Center Edition box as a DVR. Problem is, I cannot see the big screen TV from the computer. I've been thinking about a wireless desktop to solve the problem. What I need to know is the range of a wireless setup? Also, do they operate "line of sight"?

    generally no more than 200-300 feet. The more obstacles you have in the way, the weaker the signal. It is best to have line of sight. Metallic objects in your walls and in your building will also interfere.
