Question about D-Link DKVM 2K (DKVM-2K) 2-port KVM Switch
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!?
SOURCE: i just bought d-link kvm-221...
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...
