Question about Belkin F1DF102PEA 2-port KVM Switch

Components not recognised automatically with Belkin Switch2

I have a Belkin Switch2 KVM switch model number F1DF102Uuk. It is the USB version.

The switch works without problems on one of the PCs but when switching to the second, the monitor is shown correctly but neither the Mouse nor the Keyboard are recognised. Both work OK when connected directly to the PC without the KVM switch.


The only way to get the Mouse and Keyboard recognised is by unplugging the USB connection to the PC and then connecting it again. But this slightly defeats the point of getting the switch.

Any ideas on what might be wrong would be appreciated.

This is not quite a solution, but a workaround. Take a USB cable extender and intercept the 5V supply wire in it (normally red) with a push to break switch. When you have powered up the PC, push the switch and the KVM will then work (same as your unplugging but much easier to do ). Switch bought on Ebay for 0.99GBP. Belkin tried to insist that I had my laptop plugged in and working if I wanted to use my desktop.

Where can I can the drivers for the Belkin 2 port KVM switch F1dk102u


Hi:
The Belkin 2 port KVM switch doesn't need drivers to work, it is simply a plug and play switch. You plug your keyboard, mouse and monitor into the control box, and your computers into the ends, and off you go. You toggle between computers with the switch button, and if you turn off one of the computers, it automatically swiches to the other one.

Belkin Flip PS/2 - KVM switch - 2 ports how do i switch from pc to pc on key board


The instruction below the link is for a 2 port version KVM, and may not apply to your particular model. You can look your model up here:

You can switch directly to any port by entering the Switch port number you wish
to use. For example, if you press “SCROLL LOCK”, “SCROLL LOCK”, “2”, the
computer on port 2 will be selected.

AutoScan Mode
In AutoScan mode, the Switch remains on one port for eight seconds before
switching to the next. This time interval cannot be changed.
To enable AutoScan mode, press “SCROLL LOCK”, “SCROLL LOCK”, “S”.

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.

Belkin (F1DK102P) 2-port KVM Switch freezes


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.

The manual was a load of old Tom *** as it did not mention this.

Micrsosoft optical desktop 1000 to Belkin KVM switch


This is a common problem with a number of KVM switches - this model in particular. I have heard that the Bytecc BT-2000 connector will work in SOME cases: *5.99 on Newegg - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812101117 It might be worth the investment to give it a try, if you haven't already tried this. Bytecc does make very high quality hardware. However, if that doesn't work, there's really not much else that can be done, other than replacing the KVM with one designed to run off a single USB port. Hate giving bad news like that. It's a hardware limitation, I'm afraid.
