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