Your wireless mouse uses the same 2.4GHz frequency used by your Airport wireless network. And yes - if you research this issue on the internet, you'll find many reports of problems with this mouse interfering with wireless networking performance and vice versa.
You have a couple of options:
1. use the Airport Admin Utility to change the default channel that your Base Station transmits on. Some experimentation may be necessary to find a channel that minimizes interference between the two devices
2. switch to a cordless mouse that doesn't use 2.4GHz radio
I have a WIRED Lotitech LX3 mouse and using w/airport sometimes for no apparent reason when clicking on left click menus, the right click menus appear and it takes several clicks to be able to get it to start working on left click button again. Any ideas for this? I tho't since it's WIRED that GHz interferance you talked about might not be related?
