DLINK KVM-221 switch not working with MS Laser Desktop 3000

The switch has two usb inputs, one for a mouse the other for a keyboard (although it doesn't really seem to matter which gets connected to which input). This works fine sharing with two computers using a separate mouse and separate keyboard but know I have a Microsoft wirless keyboard+mouse. They talk to a receiver which has one USB output and no matter which port I plug it into on the KVM the systems do not see the mouse. They both get the keyboard fine (again regardless of which KVM port I plug the Microsoft receiver into) but nothing happens with the mouse. Plugging the receiver directly into either system works fine with both keyboard and mouse detected properly... I really don't want to give up the wireless desktop but I need a working KVM.... help!?

    D-Link KVM 221

    The switch has 2 USB ports, one for Keyboard, one for mouse.

    I have wireless mouse and kb, and only one USB receptor that controls both.

    When I plug it into the switch, only the keyboard works.

Hi,

I got this problem also; the caplock indicator didn't even lit. The problem is current consumption. KVM switch, keyboard (250mA) and mouse (100mA) were draining too much current. I changed the keyboard for a 100mA and it worked.

I hope this can help other people...

I have a Trendnet TK-209 KVM switch. My keyboard and mouse (MS wireless) that worked well for a year stopped working through the switch. they work well if connected directly to each computer.


I can confirm the same problem happened with me just now. I have TrendNet USB/KVM TK-207 and was flawlessly working with Logitech K260 Wireless Mouse and Keyboard Combo, but today on both computers all I can see is the error:

.
USB Device not recognized - The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it.

I unplugged the usb wireless adapter and connected it directly to the PC - it worked like a charm again. I have tried to connect the wireless adapter to the mouse port hoping that the keyboard USB port is causing problems, but all I got was the same error. I have tried to conect a normal USB keyboard, but again the same error I get for both - the mouse and keyboard, so it is more than obvious now that the USB ports of my KVN Switch are malfunctioning. I will try to leave it for a while if it got hot somehow as it was connected for more than 6 months working perfectly fine, but if not, I am heading to the store for support/replacement.

Hi, Is it possible to use the DKVM-2KU to share both a USB keyboard and a USB mouse? It looks as though there is only one USB input on the box. Thanks, Chris Stamp


As it stands on its own, no. You would need either a USB adapter to match either the keyboard or mouse port on the KVM. Another solution might possibly to get USB Hub to attach. Without physically testing it myself, I am not sure if it would work, but it is possible.

Keyboard not working on one side of switch


the GCS632U has keyboard and mouse emulation that may not function correctly with docking stations. To ensure the KVM it self is working correctly I would suggest plugging the single USB from the KVM directly into the laptop and see if you have the same keyboard problem. This will at least tell you if the KVM is working properly or not.

Hi . .. I want to use this KVM switch to connect


The GCS632U has keyboard and mouse emulation that may not work with all wireless combos. If your wireless combo is going to work the single USB connection would need to go into the keyboard port as that is the only port that will recognize the hot key switching commands. If the wireless combo still has problems then try using a USB wired keyboard to ensure the GCS632U is working correctly.

Problem with KVM switch and Vista


Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.

This is what you need to do:

1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.

2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.

3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.

4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.

5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.

Using KVM-121 with 2 monitors


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.

Belkin KVM STandard 9 pin mouse/keyboard to USB COnversion


You need to have the keyboard connecter (purple) connected to your computer in order for the KVM switch to recognize it. The computer is providing some power through the keyboard connector and this is what the KVM switch is feeding on.

If you have a USB keyboard, you may want to change your KVM for a USB compatible one. If you just want to use the KVM to switch your monitor, you may plug the keyboard (purple) connector of the KVM to your computer's keyboard PS/2 port and also connect you USB keyboard directly to your computer. It should work.

IOGear 2-port KVM Switch (Keyboard Issue)


I have had the same problem off and on since I bought my Iogear 2-port kvm switch over a year ago. I have a DYNEX wired, multimedia, usb keyboard and a Dynex wired usb mouse. The operating system on my desktop is Windows XP, SP3 and on my laptop it's Windows XP professional.

Yesterday, my keyboard "died" on me about 8 times and each time it requires unplugging the keyboard usb cable from the switch and my laptop, rebooting, then plugging the usbs back in. Really, really frustrating and annoying. I'm not a techno guru, but I got to thinking that maybe the keyboard driver might be the culprit. I decided to go to Control Panel, clicked on Keyboard, then Hardware/Properties/Driver/Update Driver. I clicked on "update driver" and let it find one automatically. It took what seemed like a long time for it to find the driver but it found one. The device name changed to KeyMaestro P2360, the driver updated, and I noticed 2 additional files were added to the System 32 directory.

It's only been a day but so far so good. My keyboard hasn't failed yet since the keyboard driver update. I don't know if this is the solution for you or not, but it seems to be the one for me. I'll know for sure if I can through a few days without it failing again.

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.

Wireless keyboard doesnt work with switch


once you have switched pc you will need to re-sync the wireless keyboard and mouse with the new pc, because although you have switched pc the keyboard and mouse do not know this. there should be a reset/resync button on the bottom of both the keyboard and mouse
