Hey guys, I was impressed with the bluetooth technology so I bought a couple things off tigerdirect:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications ... =H231-5012
(Cirago USB Bluetooth Adapter)

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications ... u=M17-1792
(Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse 5000)

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications ... =N529-1172
(Nokia BH-501 Bluetooth Headphones)

The mouse and headphones work on their own, but when I use both at the same time the mouse lags pretty badly. I've asked google and found many other people with this same problem. The adapter is usb 2.0 and bluetooth 2.0 but the headphones are not. My question is: Where is the bottleneck? Is it because of the headphones or the adapter, or maybe the mouse?

Any help is appreciated.

i would think its because of the wireless. the mouse & headphones are running on the same channel going to the wireless adapter so it sounds like they're interfering with each other. try changing which channel the mouse uses and see if that clears things up a bit

From my understanding of bluetooth, they have about 50-70 channels or so somewhere in the 2.4ghz area and it automatically hops to a different frequency a few hundred times a second so there is (theoretically) no interference.

I could be wrong, though.
