    Hey everyone,
    I am having lag issues on my Sager NP8657 with my mouse pointer. I have tried a few different wireless and bluetooth mice, and it still seems to skip around for a few seconds, occurring every few minutes. Since switching to an el-cheapo wired mouse I do not have the issue. Is there a test I can do that would provide evidence that the wireless card is to blame?
    I appreciate any input. Thanks!

    Have you tried using a standard wireless mouse with the 8260 disabled in device manager to eliminate it as the source of your issue?

    You kind of just did all of the tests for wireless interference. And you confirmed it :)

    If you want to isolate your wireless card as the source, put your laptop in airplane mode. If the wireless mouse lag goes away, then you know the interference is coming from the wireless card. If not, then it is something else causing the interference.

    Be mindful of anything wireless in that area. They almost all use the 2.4Ghz spectrum. So you'll get interference from WiFi, wireless Xbox controllers, microwaves, cordless telephones, etc.
