Will the FLEXControl Tuning Knob work when it is  plugged in a Laptop that connects to the FLEX 6500 through a wireless network?

Yes, It should be on the same computer that is running SmartSDR.

It "must" be connected to the same computer running SmartSDR.  The radio is clueless whether or not the network link is wired or wireless; it just has to be an IP connection.

Tim, Thanks for the verification. I have been having problems using the Laptop mouse. I often rest my hand on the keyboard and by accident hit the mouse pad on the keyboard.

Bill - yeah, that is a common problem.  I know in my PC I can turn off the touch pad via the BIOS to prevent errant mouse movements.
