Question about Belkin F1DK102U 2-port KVM Switch
I've had one of these switches for a few years now. Just recently hooked it up again, only this time using a MS cordless mouse and keyboard. A bit different than the old wired mouse and keyboard I was using a few years ago, and we ran into this issue this time.
The switch requires the ScrollLock and the #2 to be keyed to switch. Twice on the ScrLk, then the 2 (on the number pad). After trying it with the wired keyboard and it worked, I looked at the wireless keyboard and noticed the ScrLk key was a function key. Hit the F Lock key and tried it again, and it worked this time.
I also found that with the power settings in the "save energy" mode, it had a tendancy not to switch when the other PC was asleep. Try hitting the reboot button to wake it up, and that might help.
Key things: Scroll lock key activated by hitting the Function Lock key. Wake up both systems so you know they're paying attention.
Hope this helps.

I think you must also connect the USB connectors.
