I second Mikrotik. I've deployed them to all the small branches in our company and at the core as well. You get an amazing amount of features for the price. You can also get smaller units that are perfect for home use and cost around the same as a home AP.

You've probably got the mouse and keyboard too far from the transmitter. I bought a MS wireless keyboard/mouse combo and had the same problems. MS wireless devices seem to need to be extremely close to the transmitter, I'm talking 2-3 feet. Logitech products work from a far greater distance. Try moving the keyboard and mouse very close to the transmitter (couple of inches) and see if the problem goes away.

It seems intuitively obvious to me, which means that it might be wrong. -- Chris Torek
