A little Acer Aspire Revo r3610 update

by davidnielsen

In my previous post on my beloved r3610 I mentioned that I was unable to make the bundled wireless keyboard work. I assumed wrongly that the dongle was built into the machine, however after cleaning up my things I found the manual and discovered that the required dongle can be found inside the mouse’s battery bay. Once you can dug it out of it’s holding place, unplug your existing keyboard and insert the dongle in an empty USB port on the Revo then hold the connect button on the keyboard for a few seconds and voila your machine now has a working wireless keyboard.

The same approach should work with the mouse but I have used a trackball for years and love it to death so I haven’t tested this.

I hope this is helpful to other people.
