Question about D-Link DKVM-2K 2-port KVM Switch
I have 2 PCs each with its dedicated monitor; but I want to use them with only one mouse and keyboard. Can I use KVM-121? In other words, is KVM-121 can be used only for swapping mouse and keyboard without connecting the monitor plug? Can I connect each monitor directly to a PC and share the keyboard and mouse using KVM-121 between them?
You should be able to -- the KVM switch would just switch inputs for the monitor, but since your two monitors would be plugged in directly to your computers, the switch wouldn't actually be affecting your monitor inputs.
Just make sure to plug your monitors directly to your computers and not use the switch.

The way the kvm switches works is you have your mouse/keyboard and monitor plugged into the switch then you have the cables connecting to where you would have your mouse/keyboard on your pc, youll be using the same keyboard/mouse and monitor to run 2 pc's. there will be rather a switch to move between the pc's or like the 1 i use i have tp press ctrl the number 2 twice.
