    Hello! Just wondering if the Airport express can be used to extend the range of my wireless keyboard and my magic mouse. Trying to use it with my mac mini and tv in the other room. Thanks, Aaron

    No, not at all. Your AirPort Express is WiFi. Your wireless keyboard and mouse are bluetooth. Two different animals.

    Hi aaronthomas,

    I am wanting to do the same thing. Did you ever get this to work?

    Hi Charl...
    No it did not work... What I ended up doing is downloading Rowmote to my I Phone and I Pod Touch.... For 5 bucks it took the place of the mouse, keyboard, and has tons of commands..... I LOVE it! Heres the link if your interested... GOOD LUCK!

    Thanks for the reply. I will check it out!

    I have seen posts where some of the guys extended the bluetooth antenna on Mac Pro's. I'm hoping to find a way to do this on an iMac. :)

    Thanks again!
