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.

How to quickly install and use your Belkin wireless G router 1. Step 1
Position your Belkin wireless G router.

Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.

2. Step 2
Connect all the devices.

Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.

3. Step 3
Turn on your modem, router, and PC.

Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.

4. Step 4
Verify lights are on for your devices.

Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.

5. Step 5
Install and configure software.

Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure  other settings.

Belkin lost cd


The drivers available from Belkin are exactly the same drivers as are on the PC. Someone emailing you the drivers isn't going to get you any closer to a solution if you haven't got the ones you downloaded to work.

One problem you might be having is that the driver isn't the correct version. Belkin have five different versions of drivers for the five different versions of that model of card. Make sure you're using the right one. An article about the method of identifying your particular model, together with links to the various software packages can be found at http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&aid=5381

Wireless network between vista & xp


Open Windows Explorer, and then locate the drive or folder you want to share. Right-click the drive, and then click Sharing and Security. To open Windows Explorer, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer. To change the name of your folder on the network, type a new name for your folder in the Share name text box. This will not change the name of the folder on your computer. To allow other users to change the files in your shared folder, select the Allow other users to change my files check box.

Can not identify Belkin N1 Wireless USB Adaptor on PC


Hi, A couple of things: 1. Have you tried all the USB ports of your desktop PC (front and back)? 2. What is your desktop PC brand/model or at least the motherboard? and What OS please?; 3. If running Windows in the desktop PC, can you please check in your Device Manager if your USB are 2.0? 4. Are you using a USB hub or directly connected to the PC's USB port? Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back with your desktop brand/model/motherboard. Good luck and kind regards.

Belkin N1 Wireless Adaptor not connecting on PC


what the adviser meant was your pc cannot provide enough power to the usb port to power the unit, assuming you have tried other ports and it still wont work; you will need to either purchase a pci usb 2.0 card adapter or purchase a mains powered usb hub and connect to this instead.
