    Well, frankly, I have never heard of this type of connection, but I just downloaded and read the install/setup instructions for the router and that is what it says.

    The Broadcom 2046 when googled comes back as a Bluetooth USB dongle?

    I don't know. Most of the google hits I looked at seemed to be discussions regarding drivers for windows. Do you have another mouse you could try for awhile?

    Not sure, but anyway, my hunch didn't pan out...

     

    Still trying to figure out what you've got in the USB hub.

    I thought you said the Mac was connected to the router via ethernet? If not, try that and turn airport off in the Mac - you don't need it if you're using ethernet. Wireless will still be on on the router.

     

    And try a different mouse as suggested.

     

    Also, the only references I could find for your router only mentions Windows (my Netgear showed Mac compatible).

    I just access Wifi in the menu bar to turn airport on/off (I generally have it off since the imac is connected via ethernet, but I do need to turn it on when I want to use Airdrop).

    Interesting - so how were you able to use the mouse if it wasn't discoverable?

    B, "Discoverable" means other devices can find your computer and send a pairing request. Setting Discoverable to off (which is how I have it set because I don't want other nearby devices, such as someone's phone, or otherwise, in a nearby apartment, to send pairing requests), doesn't mean your computer can't find your Mouse.

     

    Apple really should make it clear what Discoverable means. It's common sense to make the assumption you did.
