You can have up to 7 devices connect to bluetooth if it is setup correctly per the Bluetooth Wiki

Well like someone pointed out before Wiki's are not always correct. I think maybe they meant you can have up to 7 devices setup on your bluetooth. From what I know it connects to one, when you try to connect to another it leaves the other. I wonder if it is any different if you added a 2nd bluetooth adapt's? On the other hand since the numberpad is not used all the time, I would buy a USB numberpad.

Thanks for your replies. 

 

Does it means I cannot get both to work at the same time?

 

In this case I will go for USB mouse and number pad then.

 

Actually I wish to get rid of the USB receivers which is quite bulky... though I experienced unstable connection using bluetooth to connect handsets to PC....
