Re: Keyboard

That's strange...a suggestion (long shot) you can check out....some keyboards come with software that allows you to remap keys...possible I suppose that the n key was remapped to something else... Good luck

Raritan SW2USB. Has been working for several years. Today started normally, but suddenly the keyboard was not visible to the switch or either computer. Checked cables, rebooted, etc. Bought a new keyboard...

It sounds like the main switching IC on the board has gone bad...seen it happen before.

Your best bet is to replace it, I would check on Ebay for a good replacement a little cheaper than retail

I just bought d-link kvm-221... switching two pc's in a single monitor is working fine but the problem is my keyboard and mouse are not working (didn't detect by kvm-221).

D-Link KVM's have a shortcut for "resetting" keyboard+mouse.

Hold down Scroll Lock and press M

If that does not help, try unplugging mouse and keyboard for 3 seconds then plugging them in again.

This worked great for a couple of months and now

It may be possible that the KVM has gone bad. Make sure the keyboard is plugged into the keyboard port of the KVM as this is the only port on the KVM that will recognize the hot key commands. If you have ensured the keyboard is plugged into the keyboard port and you have tried multiple keyboard and still experience problems I would assume the KVM is having problems. IOGear KVMs have a three year warranty and their support can be reached by email

AP5201 KVM was working; after power down, moving rack, setting up again -- no keyboard action. Got the right plugs in the right ports. Powered down as the manual says and powered back up. Tried different...

If other keyboards and mice won't work, it sounds like your KVM bought the farm. Does it have any power lights that come on? is it plugged into a live outlet? Are they PS2 ports or USB? PS2 ports don't like power surges. Is the device plugged into a UPS? Does the UPS have power or is is tripped? In a server room?

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.

I think you must also connect the USB connectors.

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.

CS62U 2 Port USBKVM Switch not switching

Are you sure, the usb cable belonging to the keyboard is plugged in the appropriate slot?
I have a wireless keyboard/mouse, so I have only 1 usb cable going into the switch. The first time, is plugged it into the slot of the mouse, and the switch did not work, so I plugged the cable in the other slot, and now everything works properly.
