Disconnects are Old Bluetooth Driver Problem

 

I had the same complaints as others when I first received this keyboard. Search with 'bluetooth AND broadcom AND update' and select 'Download' page for the HUGE updated driver which supports ALL modern devices - keyboards, mice/trackballs, speakers,...

Well designed

None with latest Bluetooth Driver

Trouble in Sleep Mode
