Follow all Instructions When Going Wireless!

SUMMARY: Be sure to read your wireless mouse's manual else it may not perform as expected.

Tired of tangling with the cords when you use the mouse to visit web pages? If you've decided to go wireless, before you plug in the mouse receiver and surf web pages, be sure to read the manual!

You'll need to install batteries in the correct polarity into your mouse for it to work, and you may also need to perform a special link-up sequence with your wireless receiver. Plus, special drivers may need to be installed from a companion CD or floppy to take advantage of your mouse's features. If you don't heed the manual's instructions, your mouse may not work as expected.
