    I have a MacBook Pro and a bluetooth mouse and it is horrible when I have downloads going over wifi. The mouse stutters and lags horribly when there is a download going on. I'm thinking of getting a different mouse, like a Logitech with that small little "Unifying receiver" that plugs in to USB. I'm wondering if this will perform differently than a bluetooth mouse that communicates to the MacBook Pro built-in transceiver.

    My guess it is more of an unsupported mouse issue, rather than interference.

    BT operates on a different band (starting at 2.402 GHz and stopping at 2.480 GHz) than WiFi.

    Have you tried unpairing and repairing your mouse and searching for a software update from the manufacturer of the mouse?

    My current mouse is the Apple Bluetooth Mighty Mouse.
