Re: A town called Eureka

Re: Someone answer this for me

You can’t, Blue Tooth class 2 has a range of 10m or about 10’.
I know HP has a mouse that runs on WiFi, but it still has a short range.
Do what I did and just get a USB extension cable and put the little mouse/keyboard dongle a bit more central.
