    I got a magic mouse and an apple bluetooth keyboard and it seems lately they are affecting my performance of my AirPort extreme when I'm at my desk using them.

    If I leave my desk and go somewhere else in the house my Internet works as it should or if I turn off my keyboard/mouse it also seems to go back to normal.

    Also, since I got these it seems when I awake from sleep on my MBA is slow to establish Internet. It says I am connected in the top menu bar (full bars), but if I try to immediately connect to adium or safari, it will take a while to get an establishment.

    Any answers?

    Try changing the broadcasting channel of your router.

    I assume you have a 802.11G router, which is operating at the same 2.4Ghz frequency as the BT KB/Mouse. Changing the channel might minimize the interference.

    If you have an AirPort Extreme instructions are here:
