Kvm switch is not detecting my g5 mouse , tried diff ports and tried alternating keyboard and mouse. think the switch has gone bad

this is not uncommon. many kvm switches cannot work with those types of wireless mice. the reason for this is due to connection codes. these mice require a connection to secure the use with each computer. you can attempt to do this with your setpoint software. located in C:\Program Files\Logitech\SetPointP you will find the program CONNECT.EXE
run this to redo your mouse connection. i will however inform you that even if this works there is a large chance that upon switching to the next pc the mouse wont work and you will need to repeat this process with each pc switch everytime you toggle pcs.

rule of thumb. if the mouse is wireless don't use it with a kvm.

Mouse speed is too fast. Can't control it. The mouse is a laser mouse made by Dell

Go into your control panel and under Mouse Options. Go to Pointer Options, and disable Enhanced Pointer Precision

Hope that helps

I have iogear miniview kvm (gcs62) keyboard works but mouse conn does not. Mluse is usb mouse with ps/2 adapter. Direct connection via usb works. used to also work with adapter but having tried it with kvm...

USB mouse with PS/2 adapter is not guaranteed to wok with GCS62. This KVM switch is designed to work with PS/2 keyboards and mice only.

When the USB mouse with PS/2 adapter is used in a computer directly, it will surely work, because the USB port can give enough power for the mouse to work. And it can easily convert the signal.

Unlike in KVM switch, the switch serves as a bridge between the mouse and the computer. And the computer does not easily recognize the mouse.

I would suggest to use a regular PS/2 mouse. Or if you want to use USB keyboard and mouse, you need to have a USB KVM switch. Model GCS632U.

Thank you and good luck!

    4-port usb kvw switch #GCS634U

    The GCS634U is designed and tested to work only with a standard USB keyboard and mouse. However, most wireless keyboards and mice work with it, but they cannot guarantee any specific model or brand that would work correctly.

    As you can see, this KVM switch is a bus powered device (meaning it only gets power from the USB ports of the computers). If the computer cannot provide enough power for the KVM switch to function correctly, then the wireless keyboard will be affected.

    You may try using the IOGEAR GKM541RA. It's tested to work with the GCS634U. Or you may also try using a self-powered USB hub (meaning, it has it's own power adapter) and connect it in between the KVM switch and the computer. That self-powered USB hub will be the one that will add up power to the KVM switch and help it to function properly.

    USB mouse not recognized

    I have similar problem. 2 inland KVM's (both have PS2 inputs, one has USB outputs) do not light or recognize my usb mouse with a PS2 adapter. They do recognize a PS2 ball mouse on the KVM's however. One of the computers (Sony vaio 1.5 GHz) does recognize a usb mouse with adapter on 2 other KVM's (Old Belkin and a Trendnet) (the second computer I have not tried in those configurations). Next I will try an optical mouse with a PS2 fitting. That did work with a fifth KVM at an auto business last week.
