Wireless Keyboards?

Can a wireless keyboard be used with the Masso (either Bluetooth or USB WI-Fi dongle)?

A wireless USB keyboard and mouse can be used and in fact the combo wireless USB keyboard and mouse will work that has one wireless receiver.

Blutooth and Wifi are a different technologies and work with bluetooth or Wifi software stack on PC and might not work.

Good news. Thank you for this information!

Hey Tech3D, I plan to use a Logitech Unify dongle with the $35 Kb+M combo I have..

The Logitech K400 Plus with touchpad works well.  My only complaint is Logitech defaults the function keys to the media functions and not the normal function F1, F2, etc.  So you have to press the FN key with the desired function key.  Otherwise it was plug and play.  Small compact size and inexpensive, ~$25

Has anyone of you guys had trouble with they wireless keyboard loosing connection to the masso upon startup? I have to disconnect the dongle and reconnect it everytime i start the machine.

Haven't come across it myself.
What model Keyboard are you using?
Is the USB receiver plugged directly into MASSO or are you using an extension cable or USB hub?
Can you define Start up. Do you power up MASSO or do you mean start to machine something?

Cheers Peter

I don't have to disconnect the dongle, but I do have to right-click the mouse before the mouse or keyboard will work after a restart or after about 5 min of inactivity.  But to be honest I don't think that has anything to do with the Masso I believe its an issue with my cheap keyboard/mouse combo
