Question about D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G122 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

Belkin 2-Port KVM Switch

I think the model of this is F1DK102P or maybe that's the manual model, not sure anymore. I purchased it about 3 yrs ago and it has the built-in cabling included. Neither of my computers are very old so that should not be the problem I'm thinking.

Anyhow I tried installing this and was wondering if it is compatible with a wireless mouse and keyboard. I'm having tons of trouble.

It partly depends on what type of wireless keyboard and mouse. This KVM is designed for use with keyboard and mice that connect via the PS/2 ports (round ports colour coded purple and green above all the other ports at the back of the computers), so if you want to share them the keyboard and mouse need to be ones that came with adapter(s) that connect to these ports on the KVM.
Wireless keyboard and mouse adapter(s) identify themselves to a computer as a keyboard and mouse, nothing more, nothing less, and the KVM just acts like extender cables so don't worry about drivers, your computer will pick them up regardless whether you are using Windows or Linux. Apple Mac's on the other hand haven't had PS/2 ports for many, many years and even then only on certain Power Macs so if you are using the KVM with a pare of Mac's purchased in the last 8 - 9 years your computers cannot power the KVM as it powers from the PS/2 ports.
However, if the keyboard and mouse are connected by adapters that go in to the USB socket(s) on your computer they can only be connected to one computer at a time so you would need a different KVM or to sets of keyboard and mice.
If your keyboard and mouse connect via BlueTooth without an external adapter you'll need to re-synchronise the keyboard and mouse every time you switch computers, this is doable but it's a bit of a pain.
As I said the KVM powers from the PS/2 ports on the back of your computers so it still needs to be plugged in to those round purple and green sockets, even if you use a separate keyboard and mouse for each computer.
If you seem to have everything set up correctly but your still having problems or you just need clarification on anything covered here message back. Nick. :)

    Woops! That should read "2 sets of keyboard and mice" not "to sets of keyboard and mice", sorry!

    ADDENDUM:


    This KVM does pass enough power to use USB to PS/2 adapters with USB wireless mouse and keyboard adapter(s). I know because I just tested it!


    USB to PS/2 adapters are usually supplied with USB keyboards, mice and mouse & keyboard kits but if not are cheaply available from your local computer store or any online computer retailer.

This type of switch is a device for switching between to computers with one keyboard,
It would pay for you to the specs of the make and model for the spec sheet to find out if this is compatible with the wireless device you wish to use,

I found this link reguarding your problem ....
http://www.belkin.com/search/?q=Belkin%202-Port%20KVM%20Switch&sid=1

would suggest uninstalling the wireless and try a restart after that and have the switch installed also,
on reboot the device should auto recognise and reinstall.

Oh yeah,NO MENTION of OS,XP or VISTA

Let me know your OS before your try this and I will let you know the correct procedure,

Hope this sorts your problem,

Misterdj

It is compatible with a wireless mouse, as long as it is a PS2 mouse.  if it is USB you could try using a converter, but it may not work.

We have the same model and the same problem. The scroll lock combo did not work for us. You need to press Ctrl, Ctrl then up or down arrow.
