Hi, I have bought the new alu wireless keyboard & new wireless mighty mouse & am using it with a Powermac G4 (gigabit ethernet) running Tiger 10.4.11, I am using a bluetooth dongle as it has no built in bluetooth, If i discover the keyboard lovely, If i discover the mouse lovely but i cant have them both connected at the same time as they seem to be canceling each other out?, Keep getting 'connection lost' with either one connected it works fine?, Had to plug in my old original keyboard etc very frustrated!, Any ideas would be great, Gonna buy a Mac mini when funds allow but it would be great to use them now!.

Cheers

Geoff

Keep the k&m for use with the Mac Mini. From experience dongles are only so good and they NEVER seem to be able to boot from disc etc etc. The last dongle I purchased was USB2 and your model G4 has USB1 by default.

USB2 PCI cards are not real reliable either!
