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.

You've two options. One is to just copy the files off your disk to an USB drive and another one is to connect to your USB devices via the media server feature on your router. The latter can possibly be difficult to do.

Yes and no...
"Wireless enabled" means you do not need a separate adapter to connect to a wireless NETWORK or computer, not a peripheral device.

I assume the two connectors are PS/2- plugs - one pink, the other one green. What you need is a PS/2- -to-USB adapter that should have come with your keyboard. PS/2-in, USB-out, either with or without the cables (see picture)
