I purchased the Dell Multi-Device Wireless Combo to go with my new XPS 13 2in1. The mouse works great; it always stays connected even after wake-up and reboot. The keyboard, however, constantly disconnects on wake up or reboot. Basically, the keyboard shows up in devices as paired, but not connected; I have to disconnect the device and add it back and pair it each time. I tried the Knowledge Base and did not find anything. I called support and each support rep. that talked to said that they would connect me with the person who would be best to talk to; after 4 reps and waiting 3 hours, I hung up. I thought it might be a Win10 ver 2004 issue so I went to the MS Win10 community and posted the above details and got a reply that linked article 403457. I did read and tried some of the suggestions. I then replied the following:
"After more than a week, it is still not connecting well. Most of the time I have to delete the device in the "Mouse, Keyboard and Pen" list and re-pair. That process usually goes like this:
The mouse that came with it connects automatically every time. I would like the the keyboard to do the same. Windows 10 home says it is up to date. Windows says the drivers are the best drivers for the device. Dell website says I have the most updated drivers. I am still trying to figure out if this is a Windows 10 Home (ver. 2004) issue or DELL hardware/software issue. I was on Dell support call for three hours mostly on hold as each of the three or four people I talked to said they would forward me to the person who could best solve my issue. After 3 hours, I hung up."
Does anybody here have any suggestions?
Any help in this area would be much appreciated. Thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just checking in here to say that since the last driver update to BT and WiFi, the keybaord has worked perfectly.
After working with DELL Cares private messaging, I had tried everything and the next step was to reload W10. It was looking to me like it might be a driver issue in W10. I had spent enough time and opted to just use the wireless dongle; that worked great. I saw this update driver post and decided to try it again. I did and so far it is working great.
Thanks to all who posted.

exactly the same issue for me with an xp15- brand new. keyboard and mouse connects fine
mouse works. keyboard constantly says paired..and doesnt work
I have the same problem with a new dell xps 13 just purchased with the same keyboard. is there a fix to the problem?
I have the same problem. Bluetooth mouse lag was a problem too, but recommended fix solved that issue. However, keyboard lag symptoms are the same as those described above and the problem persists. With my new XPS 13 2in1, I thought I'd purchased a Ferrari, but it feels more like a FIAT.
I have the same problem with XPS 15 7590.
With Dell Peripheral Manager, Firmware 18.104.22.168 for Keyboard KB7120W, and Firmware 22.214.171.124 for mouse MS5320W, theoretically both devices are updated.
I add that this incident is disappointing, other bluetooth devices (mouses and keyboards) of unknown and much cheaper brands do not give any problem, connect immediately and without interruptions. Hopefully it is a question of faulty firmware not checked before publication.
