Have Mac Mini and Windows Vista connected with a Belkin 2-port KVM w audio. No matter which I start up first the mouse and keyboard are working on the opposite machine. Example: Mac desktop is being displayed, I move mouse, type on keyboard... no response. Switch to the PC and the text I typed and mouse movment are displayed on the PC display! Ugh! I have tryed reconection the whole thing several times over in differnet orders. I have tryed starting the Mac 1st the PC 2nd, vice versa. What is going on?

    Yes, your right. I just got off the phone with manufacturer. It is defective, connections are flipped. Stinker is that I bought it on-line and would have to pay return shipping. They did give me a new phone # to call and try and get a replacement from mfg. Man... I really wanted this thing to work. Note: Once the computers are on, disconnect USBs to power down the unit, reconnect and most of the time it starts working again. Once you shut it all down at the end of the day and cold start in the morning your problems start all over again. Of course all this activity defeats the purpose of the switch!!! Sphynkter my smelly friend thank you for your help, it is much appriciated.

I have installed several of these KVM switches before... that's not normal. It sounds like there's a manufacturer's defect which is causing the video to link up with the wrong keyboard/mouse cables. If you just bought it, I'd recommend returning it and getting a replacement.

Does the F1DK102P support HPUX 10.2


It depends. The switch is an electro-mechanical device.

If the connectors on the switch match the keyboard/mouse connectors on the hardware (PC? HP?) that is running HP-UX, then you can disconnect the keyboard/mouse, connect the switch's connectors to those ports, and connect the keyboard/mouse to the switch.

Belkin Switch Problem


no its not, sometimes that device or the port connection are not installed yet properly. To check it on the device manager, see to it that the connection on your Belkin Switch are functioning. Or try another port or USB connection, it might work there.

KVM will only switch one way


Please make sure that the keyboard is hooked up on the KB port of the KVM. check underneath the GCS632U for the correct console port. you will see a keyboard and mouse icon. Make sure that the keyboard is connected to the keyboard port. tap scroll lock key twice to switch between computers.

It is compatible with a wireless mouse, as long as it is a PS2 mouse.  if it is USB you could try using a converter, but it may not work.

Belkin KVM STandard 9 pin mouse/keyboard to USB COnversion


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.

Operating System doesn't deal anything on your problem. The problem depends on the brand of you computers or the type of keyboard you are using.

The GCS632U is designed to work with standard USB keyboard and mouse only. And wireless and gaming keyboards and mice are not guaranteed to work correctly with this KVM switch. If any one of you is using the new Mac Aluminum keyboard, this keyboard will not work with the older version of the GCS632U. But IOGEAR releases a new batch of GCS632U that would work with the Apple Aluminum keyboard.

If you have an Apple Aluminum keyboard that does not work with the GCS632U, you may contact the IOGEAR Tech support and they will process a Return Merchandize Authorization (RMA) if your device is still under the warranty period.

To resolve your keyboard issue, try to power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers, disconnect also the keyboard and mouse from the KVM switch. Leave it disconnected for two minutes. After two minutes, reconnect everything and reboot the computers.

If you have the PS2 mouse and keyboard (round plug-in) instead of USB this is an easy install. however if you have USB you will need adapters to make this work, but I do not recommend it since more problems could occur. If you have the PS2 ends first shutdown both computers. remove your monitor, mouse, and keyboard from your computer and attach them to the single end of the switch. Mouse goes to Green, Keyboard to Purple. Take the other ends and connect the first group to your first computer mouse, keyboard, and monitor (same colors as above) and repeat for 2nd group of wires on 2nd computer. turn the computers on. you should get display, keyboard, and mouse for 1st computer. after both boot hit scroll lock 2 times within 2 seconds and then arrow up or down key to change between computers.
