Try putting the mouse and receiver on the same plane.

Toggle keys don't work as advertised

Hi David,

I located and downloaded a copy of the manual and found the details for [Scroll Lock] [Scroll Lock] [Enter] on page 8 that simply says:

"This will switch everything (KVM and sound) to the next port."

There is no mention of this keystroke switching to the next port "only if there is a computer connected" as you indicated in your question. It would seem to me that if the KVM switches to the next port when it receives the [Scroll Lock] [Scroll Lock] [Enter] keystroke - it is working as described in the manual that I downloaded from the IOGear site.

The only remaining commands accepted by the KVM are :

[Scroll Lock] [Scroll Lock] [a] [Enter] which is a 5 second Auto Scan mode


[Scroll Lock] [Scroll Lock] [a] [n] [Enter] which is nearly identical as the a5 second Auto Scan mode - except the the numerical value you type in place of [n] is the number of seconds spent on the next port.

Double check your manual and if you're still having trouble - contact IOGear directly below:

Just hooked up the KVM cable and when I switch to the second computer, the mouse and keyboard do not work. Can someone help me with this?

Sounds like there's a bad connection on the second computer, may just have to plug another mouse/keyboard in.
(I sometimes use a wireless usb keyboard/mouse combo)

First, disconnect the KVM switch from the computer(s). Disconnect also the keyboard and mouse from the KVM switch, including speakers (if there is). Leave the KVM disconnected for 5 minutes.

Before you reconnect the KVM switch, make sure that the computers are turned off. Re-connect the KVM switch to the computers, and then reconnect the keyboard and mouse.

Turn on the first computer, followed by the second one. If you are still not getting any light indicator, then the KVM switch is dead.

You may contact IOGEAR through 866-946-4327.

Thank you for using FixYa!

The GKM531RA comes with a USB dongle which is connected to the computer.

Since you mentioned that the batteries are okay. Locate the small button on the dongle (connect button) and look for the connect button underneath the mouse.

Hold the connect button at the same time for 5 seconds ONLY, and release them both. The mouse should work.

If that did not help, try to use the keyboard and mouse in a different computer.

Last, contact IOGEAR and have them RMA the device. Meaning that the mouse has a hardware defect.

Thank you and good luck!

My wireless works sporadically. I have changed

Okay. Haha i just had same problem at work. Try moving the receiver right in front of keyboard and mouse. I found that the range for the mouse is a little greater than the keyboard. Remember the range on this thing REaLLY sucks, mine wont even go 2 ft. Give it a try and let me know.

Iogear problem

Hi. What device are you using? I suggest that you check if the keyboard is hooked up to the correct port. You will see underneath the KVM an icon that looks like a mouse and a keyboard. Make sure that everything is hooked up correctly. It should be okay once you connect them properly. Press "scroll lock" twice.
