You should be able so use just one dongle (not doogle) for everything. But are you positive that the keyboard/mouse combo is actually using bluetooth? Those are usually not bluetooth, but you can get them. The bluetooth manager should be able to find them if they are bluetooth. If not, then the manager will never find them. Many newer computers have a bluetooth adapter built in so no USB adapter is necessary. I have no idea about your computer, though.
Take my advice, I'm not using it.

What model Logitech keyboard and mouse? Are they wireless, or bluetooth? All of the keyboard and mouse combinations that I've seen are wireless using a proprietary encrypted protocol.
