    So I dont know if this is happening solely because of this mouse but I have a Logitech M325 wireless bluetooth mouse and its great but has a problem that makes me limit its use.

    When I plug it in and leave it sitting or a while or just use it for a while my Wifi cuts out or becomes a limited connection. At first I thought it was the laptop causing the problem but to experiment I went a few days without using the mouse and there were zero problems with the Wifi. I installed the latest drivers/software for the mouse and unified receiver but still the WiFi issue occurs.

    I ALSO changed the channel for my WiFi from 11 and 9 to 1 and 2. (I have two routers contributing to the same network. Its an AT&T Uverse thing) Maybe the channels are still off BUT like I said - no issues with the WiFi when not using the mouse.

    I also have a Smartphone I use WiFi with sometimes and it never has issues receiving and using the network.

    I dont know what the problem is and have tried googling but to no avail. Any ideas? Many thanks in advance.

    Edit:

    My laptop is a Thinkpad T430. Intel Centrino Wireless 2x2 adapter Wireless-N 2200.

    Edit 2:

    Looks like I may be wrong in my assumptions. Looks like this is a Lenovo WAN driver mess up:

    Most recent post was a few days ago with no solutions yet besides a registry edit which I doubt is the actual mix. I found out I had a conflict in Device Manager and googled that. Two seconds later I find my EXACT problem in that forum post. (11 pages long too).

    Im not really sure how any of that was supposed to help. Most of the solutions I saw were not effective or not possible in my situation. The information was interesting but I dont know what else to do. Lenovo hasnt fixed the situation with the WAN Miniport Driver issues.

    Its thoroughly annoying that my mouse cuts off my internet.

    Does the problem occur when the wireless mouse is not connected?

    Does your wireless router have a bluetooth coexistence mode? I have to set this on my wireless router (which is running dd-wrt) to keep my internet connection from dying whenever I pair my phone with my computer via bluetooth for any extended length of time.

    Im having the same problem and have had to switch back to my semi broken mouse. Have you found a solution yet? I haven't found anything.
