Question about Belkin F1DF102PEA 2-port KVM Switch
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.
