DIY Hack – Wireless Keyboard Range Boost Hack

Okay, after a long work week, we are back relaxing at Lincoln Park in San Francisco…  Weather is very nice today and I got a lot of sleep (like 12 hours).  Tonight, we will cook some good food but before doing so:

Here’s how to extend your wireless keyboard range via hackedgadgets.  I wonder if you can do this to Apple Keyboards too…  But here’s a cool thread on how to connect an Apple wifi keyboard to Ubuntu.

    You can extend the range even without any soldering required. I simply wrapped a wire (a long phone cord I had at my dispense) a few times around my logitech RF receiver, and the rest of wire (a few more feet) I taped along a wall up to the ceiling. This simple hack improved the range of my wireless mouse and keyboard by maybe 200%, and now I can control my computer from anywhere in the apartment. getting the number of wire loops required and the length of the cable is a bit of a trial and error, but it’s so easy you might want to give it a try.

    Its true. My refurbed Logitech Wave would only work 10 feet away for a minute or two. So I opened it up and looked for a place to solder. I couldn’t find anywhere that matched any pics online…. So once I re read this post I realized that there is no soldering and no opening of cases or anything. Just wrap a wire around the USB reciever and you are good.

    I am meow typing this from 25 feet away! My mouse will only stay connected at about 18ft but both sets of Duracells are used.

    Good Luck
