KVM and Microsoft keyboard and mouse

Hi cgpatel,
I am running 2 PC windows XP SP2 with a ATEN kvm switch. Currently I am using a Belkin wireless keyboard, which works fine with kvm, but I would like a better keyboard perhaps a curved one. I have tried 2 Microsoft wireless keyboards; the 6000 and the 700. The 6000 comes with CD with manual, which states that the ste may not work with kvm, because the wireless transceiver requires an "active" USB port (whatever that means? powered?). The 700 is your standard set without any CD. It seemed to work for a few minutes and I was able to switch between the 2 PCs using the keyboard, but the mouse was never recognised by the PC, then the whole set gave up. Logitech keyboards and mouse woulod be preferable, but they do not have a "Scroll Lock" key, which is used by the kvm for switching between PCs. Any advise?

Sounds like KVM has a bug. Maybe their website has a fix.

SOURCE: Password reset for ATEN kvm switch

If you are unable to perform an Administrator login (because the Username and
Password information has become corrupted, or you have forgotten it, for
example), there is a procedure you can use to clear the login information.
To clear the login information do the following:
1. Power off the CN8000 and remove its housing.
2. Use a jumper cap to short the jumper on the mainboard labeled J6.
3. Power on the switch.
4. When the front panel LEDs flash, power off the switch.
5. Remove the jumper cap from J6.
6. Close the housing and power on the CN8000.
After you start back up, you can use the default Username and Password (Login: administrator, pass: password).

The control for Inland KVMs is ScrLk + ScrLk + #. Example: ScrLk + ScrLk + 1 gives you the first attached computer, ScrLk + ScrLk + 2 gives you the second.

SOURCE: using KVM-121 with 2 monitors

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.

Hi, the CS62U is connected with an HP8750 (win2000) and a MSI WIND NETTOP 120 (win XP home). It works perfectly with the HP desktop but the mouse is not responding anymore.


Try this:
1. Disconnect your HP computer, so that only the MSI Wind is connected.
2. On the keyboard, hit [Numlock]+[-] then press [A] (this will auto-search for the computer that's connected, and connect both keyboard and mouse to that port).

Give XP a minute to detect new hardware. If XP does not detect the mouse, try plugging the mouse into a port directly on your netbook. If XP still does not detect the mouse, it's XP that's not detecting your mouse properly, not the kvm switch. :) If it does detect it, you should be able to then plug it back into your kvm switch and it should work at that point.
Note: if you get stuck with lights flashing on your keyboard, just hit [Esc] on the keyboard. That will reset the KVM switch.
Hope this helps!

Iogear MiniView Micro USB Plus KVM Switch (GCS632U) Problem


The GCS632U does not have any form of display emulation which may cause video problems if the boot up is not done right. What IOGear recommends is when booting up a computer the KVM should stay on that computer until it comes to a desktop. What this does is it allow the KVM to pass the EDID information from the monitor to computer and that should help.

2-port KVM switch mouse & keyboard connected to wrong display


I have installed several of these KVM switches before... that's not normal. It sounds like there's a manufacturer's defect which is causing the video to link up with the wrong keyboard/mouse cables. If you just bought it, I'd recommend returning it and getting a replacement.

Mouse and keyboard not recognized on second computer


Solution for the mouse. I have 8 KVM's. Most of my computers work with the KVMs. On 1 inland KVM the logitect and Microsoft optical mice do not work on one computer (but work with the other computers). They both are USB. I hook them up with a USB to PS2 adapter. If I use a ps2 ball mouse connected to the KVM the mouse works. All the Mice work if I directly connect them. Since I do not want a ball mouse I got a Frisby optical PS2 mouse. It works with all the computers on the KVM's.

I do not have a solution for the Keyboard yet. 1 computer (ASUS MB) on my trendnet or belkin 4 postion KVM does not recognize the keyboard.

KVM GCS1734 with microsoft wireless mouse/keybrd 4000


The MS keyboard & mouse receiver is effectively a USB hub with two devices connected to it. So, plugging it into the keyboard socket on the KVM switch may well work, depending on how that particular switch implements USB. If it just passes things through, it should be OK. On the PC side you should only need to plug in the USB cable from the switch's keyboard port.
