HOW TO – Improve the range of your wireless keyboard or mouse

David boosted the range of his wireless keyboard / mouse by 400%, he writes – ” I bought a really cool wireless media center keyboard with an onboard trackball mouse, so I diden’t need to sit at a table with a mouse, mousepad and a keyboard while enjoying my media center. The plan was that i would be able to relax in my sofa while surfing the internet by using this clever unit.

But oh no! On the cardboard box there was written that the range of the keyboard should be up to 5 meters, but it was at best 2 meters. Not long enough to be used as I intended. “ [via] – Link.
