Question about Belkin F1DK102P 2-port KVM Switch
How do I connect the Belkin USB Peripheral Switch to a both computers? What do I need to do?
Have you looked at the instructions? Here's a link to the Belkin manual for this product:
It looks very straight forward. You need to install the driver software on each of the computers then run a USB cable from each computer to the USB switch. Connect these cables to the end of the USB switch that has the four sockets. Next run a USB cable from the end of the USB switch with one socket to the device you wish to control.
When you want to use the USB device from a computer you can select it by right clicking on the USB status icon in the task bar and selecting "Switch" or you can use the hotkey Ctrl+F11 for Windows or Alt+F11 for Mac.
If you find this solution useful I hope you'll rate it...unfortunately most people don't seem to find the time. People like myself are not getting paid for these solutions we're just trying to help.

I spoke with Belkins tech support and they stated that the switch is only for Unifunctional and not for Multifunctional printers.
