Cordless desktop > 6ft range

Does anyone have a cordless desktop > 6ft range? Thinking of putting a mini desktop in the familyroom next to the TV. TV to couch distance is over 8ft. I've looked at both Logitech and Microsoft but effective range isn't always available.

Oh yeah, I don't want to spend over $45...

Thanks!

i have a media PC that uses an ATI wireless remote, the range was to far so i run a 15 foot USB extension cord to it, works fairly well but i am pressing the past the max length on USB.

try putting a 6 foot extension on the receiver

Have an MX1000 that can easily go over 6ft. Don't know too much about the keyboards though.

I always looked at bluetooth as a pretty short-range thing.

Yeah, Bluetooth is not a long range wireless option at all...

blue tooth is rated to 10 meters by spec, whether or not you get 10 meters is another thing.

10 meters or 10 feet? There is a HUGE difference!

I was curious. 10 meters, as da man said :-)

http://www.mobileinfo.com/Bluetooth/FAQ.htm#t6

Q: What is the range of Bluetooth transmitter/receivers?
A: Bluetooth is designed for very low power use, and the transmission range will only be 10m, about 30ft. High-powered Bluetooth devices will enable ranges up to 100m (300ft). Considering the design philosophy behind Bluetooth, even the 10m range is adequate for the purposes Bluetooth is intended for. Later versions of the Bluetooth spec may allow longer ranges.

Psycho
 
I have my tv is my living room, and my couch is pretty far away from my tv.
so what I did is I have my computer pretty close to me (beside couch and under a endtable), i then run the cord up so the lil monitor thing is sitting right under me. I just run a huge cord along the wall for my connection to the tv and speakers.
