So I went and bought a magic mouse
haven't tried it at my house yet
but when use it at my girlfriend's place the wifi keeps dropping, but once reconnect it'll be fixed for a while and drop again until i turn the magic mouse off
The owner of the place is not around so there's no access to the router
what can i do to fix this problem?
have anyone else encountered the same problem?

The magic mouse uses bluetooth, so the router will not even come into play.13" rMBP 256gb | Mac Mini | 24" ACD | 128GB Verizon iPhone 7 Plus | 128GB iPad Pro LTE | 16GB iPad mini 2 | Gen 7 Nano | Gen 4 iPod Touch | TV1 | TV3 | TV4 | Watch Sport 42mm Space Gray

The Wifi router is most likely operating at 2.4Ghz, the same frequency as the Bluetooth, so depending on how new or old the router is it might be possible that it's picking up interference and not dealing with it properly.
If you had access to the router, you could try changing the WiFi channel to see if it got better..

Thank you Raz0rEdge
I wasn't sure why bluetooth and wifi would conflict
now i know
I have no access to the router so... i guess i'll just play with my trackpad

If you use it on your router and see the same symptoms I would return and get the magic mouse replaced.13" rMBP 256gb | Mac Mini | 24" ACD | 128GB Verizon iPhone 7 Plus | 128GB iPad Pro LTE | 16GB iPad mini 2 | Gen 7 Nano | Gen 4 iPod Touch | TV1 | TV3 | TV4 | Watch Sport 42mm Space Gray

Is the WiFi signal very low? If so, the Bluetooth signal may be overshadowing it regardless of exact frequency. As long as it's in the same band (2.4 GHz) it's possible. If the signal coming from the router were stronger (such as if you were closer to it), the issue may stop.
