Pairing Wireless connection of wireless Keyboard and Mouse

Bought a Logitech Wireless keyboard and mouse and it works fine.

The problem is I have 2 computers so decided to send away for another usb wireless connector Which cost £10.

Now the problem is when I pair both up on my other computer it works fine.But as soon as I switch to my normal computer it will not work unless I pair them up again.And vice versa.

Now the only problem with pairing them up again is that I then have to install another mouse to get into pairing them then it works Ok.

I thought that it would be a good idea at the time but have came to the conclusion that probably not.

Anyone know if it should work or is there a way round it.

There's Inputdirector but you would need both PCs on at times.

Could be they are trying to set themselves up on different channels.

No idea on how to get round the prob.

Not looking good like you say.

It was worth a try.Looks like I can get them to work one at a time but pairing them every time I change is a bit of a drawback.

Looks like it is back to the normal mouse and keyboard with the spare computer.
