We are running Smoothboard software and using a wired sync to connect the Wiimote and everything works just fine, but I have several classrooms where the Wiimote disconnects after several minutes of working just fine (sometimes after an hour or two).  After much troubleshooting, we are at loss.

Are the neighboring classrooms running the separate systems simultaneously.

What Bluetooth adapter are you using? We have heard reports where there are interference issues caused by the Bluetooth adapter using the same MAC address. This happens for some low-cost Bluetooth adapters.
