    Wireless Mouse/Keyboard

    I'm looking for a Wireless Mouse/Keyboard combinaison that would work in a big conference room.

    I know their 2 wiresless technology right now ; BlueTooth and the 27 MHz frequency but their range are too small. (Up to 30 feet for BlueTooth is not enough for me and I don't like BlueTooth anyway). I have InfraRouge for my keyboard right now but it's not working very good either because you have to face the receiver.

    You guy know any other technology that would work?

    We use the Belkin and it fits our needs perfectly. We are more worried about the equipment growing legs that we are about having the most top of the line. However, if you have the $$$ (Bluetooth) would grab my vote.

    Bluetooth can go further than 30 ft (class 2).

    You can get a (hypothetical) 330 ft (class1) bluetooth tranciever to use with the class 2 keyboard. They are backwards compatible.

    I just got myself an IOGEAR Class 1 usb tranciever.

    http://www.iogear.com/products/product.php?Item=GBU301

    They have utilities to connect to headphones, mice, keyboards, PDAs, etc.

    My palm is a class 2 and this is a class 1. They work together.

    You can do the same thing with other devices.

    Pick the one you like best?
    I've never used bluetooth keyboards or mice and won't be of much help there.
