Thinkpad 8 bluetooth issue: Official Lenovo bluetooth keyboard and bluetooth mouse

2014-05-20, 3:31 AM

I have had  an on and off issue with the official bluetooth mouse and bluetooth keyboard with trackpoint, both from Lenovo. 

 

When i use either one by themselves i run into no issues.  The keyboard and trackpoint do everything they are supposed to do and the mouse and all its functions work correctly.  However, when i pair them both to my Thinkpad 8 tablet, the keyboard has issues.  Letters and key taps stutter, or sometimes input more than what i typed.  The mouse will be a little more jerky.

 

Using another bluetooth keyboard and mouse have no issues.

 

I can't figure out if there is a way to set them  at different channels or if that is even possible, like a wireless connection.  If anyone has any advice i would appreciate it.

 

James

Anyone at Lenovo got any insight on this?  I am using the combo tonight for my school work with little interference but last night it was unusable.

Hi, as I already stated few times here, I found, that using a BT mouse along with a BT keyboard on a portable device is problematic and in our case (Tablet 8) impossible. Also many users of MS Surface face this issue(and I believe everybody that uses this combination will have problems). I personally used Microsoft BT mouse with cheap Canyon BT keyboard. My experience was, that it sometimes worked fine, but sometimes I had extreme mouse lags. I did not find when or why it worked once well or not. I ended up with buying a Lenovo Y cable, USB Hub and using Microsoft Arc keyboard(with USB receiver) and the Microsoft BT mouse now.

To my opinion, there is no way how to make the BT combo work. Probably due to physical dikensions of the device and the antenna size etc. Good luck with this.

Thank you for your reply.

 

I've decided to give this up. I'll use a bluetooth keyboard and a regular USB mouse with an OTG cable.

 

Best,

I have a better solution, using BT Keyboard + Mouse + wifi without issue now. 

1. Go to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections

2. Double Click the wireless network connection.

3. Click "Properties"

4. Click "Configure..."

5. Click the "Advanced" Tab

6. Scroll down and click the "Bluetooth Colaboration" and change the value to "Disable"

7. Restart

You Tablet will act a little weird after you disable making it hard to restart, but once it's restarted everything will work properly and at the same time!

Please report if the solution works, unfortunately, I got rid of my BT keyboard, so I can't confirm ATM.

I've been running Windows 10 for a while now. I can't test it on 8.1.

 The only difference from the described solution is the name of the second link:

 

Control Panel --> Network and Internet -->  View network status and tasks (...)

 

I followed the instructions, reestarted it (didn't notice any weirdness btw) and voilá, it does work.

I've been replying to my emails now for about 20 minutes and the mouse is really smooth.

 

My setup:

 

- Thinkpad 8 (running Windows 10 build (10240);

- Microsoft universal mobile keyboard;

- Microsoft wedge mouse.

 

 

Thank you, skurtis! This solution is going to my special list. It might come in handy in the future in another situation.

 

All the best!
