Default my dog chewed my dongle

I just bought a k83 keyboard, had it for 3 days before the pup
munched the wi-fi dongle up.
I am trying to buy another but the corsair website says there are no stockists.
Is there a way to buy direct?
or will a different dongle do the same trick?
any help would be great. thanks

From a brief check online - seems the keyboard has two connectivity modes : 2.4GHz and Bluetooth.
I'm not sure about the 2.4GHz method - but I imagine any enabled computer or Bluetooth dongle should be ok if you can't get the genuine dongle.

ALthough the K83 dongle isn't sold by Corsair UK
Seems they do sell the one for K63
I wonder if they're the same thing ?

AFAIK, Corsair only uses 2 types of dongles, the regular 2.4GHz one, and the newer Slipstream. It should work, assuming you can flash it to the K83 firmware.
