Question about Edimax EK-PS2C (EKPS2C) 2-port KVM Switch

Open Question

Want to update keyboard, Logitech & Microsoft say can,t use KVM.

At present I use a Logitech Internet Pro keyboard (old) and a Logitech Trackman Wheel mouse M/N: T-BB18 and an HP w2207h Screen connected to 2 pc's with a 2-Port EDIMAX KVM switch M/N: EK-PA2C. Because the Trackman wheel is a USB connection I utilise an adaptor socket to connect to the KVM switch.

With the above connections I would like to use a NON-wireless keyboard . I did try a MICROSOFT ergonomic keyboard , but for some reason it did not appear to work with the KVM switch (ie it was only usable on the 1 pc). A contact with MICROSOFT said that because it was a USB Kybd it would not work with my traditionally connected KVM switch and I would not be able to find a suitable keyboard. I returned the keyboard because of this and am still using this one here, disappointedly.
The keyboard would be mostly used for media usage (media player link & pause/stop - mute - volume etc) as well as various hotkeys for www/E-mail certain software start up's etc.

The above was a correspondence with "Logitech".
There reply linked me to this:

http://logitech-en-emea.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_emea.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=305&p_created=1085519332

and explained that Logitech Keyboards (all of them) will NOT work with a KVM switch.
As you can see by my typing this, the present (old) keyboard is working perfectly alright with the KVM switch.

The present keyboard is showing signs of it's age and does need replacing. A brief search for suitable keyboards bought me to both the Microsoft & Logitech ergonomic type keyboards (multiple hot keys , etc). But until I can solve this problem with the use of a KVM switch ( I do not want 2 keyboards at this desk, it is pointless having the KVM switch if I was to do that).

The OS software on both pc's is Windows XP Pro@SP3.

fingers crossed you have a solution to this issue.

youres

Why won't my Logitech Traackman MArble FX work with Windows 7?


If you are trying to convert your Logitech Trackman Marble FX from PS2 to USB so it will work with Windows 7, you can't just convert the port type - you have to get an "adapter" that converts the PS2 signal to a USB signal. See for ATen - UC 100KMA. WEB SIte:
http://www.aten.com/products/KVM/KVM-Modules-&-Accessories/PS2-to-USB-Adapter~UC100KMA.html#.U5sYrCi4NAE.

It allows you to convert a PS2 keyboard and PS2 mouse/trackball with the one device. It's what I use and it works just fine. The regular $2.00 port adapter was useless.

They are on EBAY sometimes for $20 or so. GOOD LUCK. :)

My keyboard is typing double letters. I have rebooted, changed batteries. But still typing double. reverted to usb keyboard for time being


I had this problem after changing the batteries in Logitech Cordless Internet Pro Keyboard - Model Y-RAJ56A, very frustrating.
I am using a KVM switch that only has PS2 outputs and one of the computers doesn't have PS2 connectors for both keyboard and mouse. This necessitated another mouse & receiver. Receiver will accept both mouse & keyboard but initial installation didn't include pairing the KB with the receiver, it
picked it up from the KVM.
When I changed the batteries in the keyboard I instinctively pushed the buttons to pair the receiver to the keyboard.
Wrong move!
Now the computer is receiving keyboard command from both the former 'mouse only' receiver & the KVM, creating ddoouubbllee letters. After pairing, they refused to be unpaired.
Solution was to go to Control Panel, in Device Management and disable Wireless Keyboard. Now it only receives keystrokes from the KVM.
Problem was solved.

Hope this helps, Plasticman69

One more problem with "Vista'


Two options:

1. Download the latest Vista driver for your trackball or mouse from the Logitech website and do a clean install.

2. Go to Control Panel and uninstall that particular update.

Should work :)
