I lost the USB for my wireless keyboard. Can this be replaced?

I have several wireless keyboards and mice that were separated from their mini USB devices. Now I can't use these keyboards and mice. Is there a way to get another connector? Or am I forced to trash these perfectly good keyboards?

"Unifying keyboard and mouse dongle means that there is only one receiver for both of the wireless accessories instead of a receiver per accessory.

For example my wireless keyboard and mouse use one receiver that is plugged into one usb slot, whereas my previous ones each came with a receiver. One for my mouse and another for my keyboard. It took up two usb slots.

If like my old set it came as a set in one box it is more than likely possible for you to download a software dongle that will allow you to use the one that you have left for your mouse or keyboard. They have extremely close if not almost the same frequency that they send and receive data through and from your pc. Although you will only be able to use one at a time and use the program to switch between the two accessories.

I converted mine to Bluetooth with a Bluetooth dongle I had for my phone, but that's on a much more technical level and does require some knowledge and savvy or a background study in this area.

If I were you I would try the first option, if it doesn't work there are people on ebay selling their old receivers as to other difficulties as their pets using the wireless keyboard as chew toys and they are in turn stuck with the receiver.

If all above fails buy yourself a new set and be sure to leave the receiver in a port you will never use again and make it a temperament feature to that usb slot. Yes temperament!!! As if the pc will explode or melt if removed ever. That's all I have hope this leads you to a much less complicated choice!

"Sorry that this won't actually solve your problem, but if you do end up buying another mouse/keyboard set-up, may I suggest SIIG ""Wireless Extra-Duo Keyboard and Mouse Combo"" (#JK-WR0J12-S1)?

And my suggestion comes with these two reasons,

1. Very economical and built fairly well (Have had mine for over 2 years now) but the coup de grâce is definately:

2. It has a slot to store your usb dongle in when you are on the move, keeping it from sticking out and braking as you drag it in and out of your bag, drawer, what have you. Or worse, twisting your USB internal port to non-compliance with your motherboard!

Just a friendly suggestion, and here's a picture of where the storage area is. And it really holds it tight, hasn't fallen out on its own on me yet.

Hope this helps someone!"

"Dell has a file that lets you install a control panel so you can pair up to 6 wireless components to your computer this is especially good if you have lost your dongle, I downloaded this file myself tonight an easily installed a new DELL dongle that I got from eBay seller, and also they can be found on amazon

Reference this link it gives the instructions and how to get the file for free.
