Note: The wireless module and receiver are factory paired. If either one is lost or damaged, you will need to purchase a new wireless accessory kit. The battery can be purchased separately. See Ordering Parts and Accessories.

Wireless optimization

If your screen cursor lags behind the pen movement on the tablet or move erratically, or if you see excessive straight line segments when drawing in graphics applications, your wireless connection may not be able to transmit all of the data from the tablet with the necessary speed. This may be caused by interference from other radio sources, obstructions in the radio wave path, excessive distance from the computer, or a combination of those factors.

To improve the wireless connection and optimize tablet performance:

  • Remove any metallic objects that may be in the line of sight between your pen tablet and the Wacom wireless receiver attached to your computer.
  • Try connecting the wireless receiver to a USB extension cable, and place it on your desktop or somewhere in sight of the pen tablet.
  • Move the pen tablet closer to your computer.
  • Switch off any other devices operating in the 2.4 GHz radio spectrum, such as mobile telephones, etc., or move their antennas further away from your computer.

Warning: See the Important Product Information guide, accessible from the Wacom Desktop Center, for battery safety precautions.
