Wireless Keyboard: throwing in random letters

Note: I'm not editing what this thing is typing.

My work cogmgputerg uses a wireless keyboard, and as you gcan see it's throwing in gextra g's when I type fast. The receiver is less than 6 inches in front of it. But it's not always g's . . . some days it's other gletters and somegdays it's "enter's" which was a major pain in gthe arse.

Anyone have any ideas?

Depends on the brand/frequency you have. Some are only 3'-4', others 9'-10'. The most I've seen on an IR is about 10', and I have seen a few around 25'-30' on an RF.
