I got everything set up. I can connect to my computer no problem. However, the controls are way off...so I can't do things like input stuff into the browser because the cursor on my iPad is no where near where it is on the computer. So as I am sitting here I can do it if I watch the PC's screen, but if I was say, out of town, I couldn't click on anything reliably.

Look for the fast refresh setting, and maybe play around with colors.

It did take me a little tweaking.

Hey, I just tested mine again, and there is like zero lag. You on wifi or 3G? Windows or Mac?

WiFi and Windows. It's not lag, it's that the cursor on the iPad is completely different than the one on the actual machine. So in a sense I am using a cursor on the iPad to control a cursor on the machine rather than just controlling the cursor on the machine.

So like, if you weren't looking you would click the wrong place? Are you running two monitors, and if so, are the different resolutions?

Hm, no idea, but if we keep tossing ideas around, something will click.

FWIW, mine works 100%.

No to the monitors.

As simple as I can put it, the iPad iTeleport CREATES it's own cursor. That cursor starts in the center of the screen. It controls ANOTHER cursor, the actual cursor. They are not lined up. So without the cursors being lined up, it would literally be like trying to highlight text with the monitor turned off.

Strange. Keep in mind that iTeleport was originally designed for Mac so they may still be working out kinks in the Windows formats. I use it for Mac and have used it on my iPhone for a few years over both wifi and 3G and don't experience any issues.

Submit a report to their customer service team.

I use mine on Windows.

Do you have some exotic mouse or display driver/software running?

Sorry you're having problemsnwith it, I think I wouldn't enjoy my iPad as much without this feature.

I uninstalled and reinstalled...and it's kinda working...the pointer is on to where it should be...the only issue how is that where the cursor is on my iPad, is about 3 inches from where my finger is. But more usable now.
