    universal wireless receiver?

    Trying to help someone again. They have been given a used Phillips PC with xp home, have set it up and runs ok. It came with a "Phillips freevents" wireless keyboard and mouse both same model numbers 5545 URF which I cant get to work and in my opinion this is because there is no usb or any other wireless receiver present. The original owners say it never had anything that plugged in anywhere and just worked. Using a wired keyboard + mouse at the moment. Phone calls to Phillips.....well you can imagine ...nobody knows what you mean... have tried phillips website and various googles but cant get far. Can anyone shed some light on this? is it possible to get a sort of universal receiver for the keyboard and mouse that will work?

    It says here ( BTC 5545 URF Wireless USB Keyboard & Mouse Set: ) that the set has a "mini receiver" and the attachment looks like what is missing. It's probably in a drawer somewhere at the previous owner's place. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Al,
    A wireless transmitter HAS to have a receiver somewhere! ( in fact the specs say there is a USB based receiver included )
    I know that you know this but you are probably right about the receiver never making the trip along with the keyboard and mouse.

    Any idea how old this device is?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Thanks both and especially for the link. At least now I can go armed with this info and show them that there must be a receiver somewhere!

    Yeah, that's the gadget I have highlighted in red in my attachment. Looks like a USB dongle to my eye.
