Zippy WK610 (USB) does not work through KVM switch

Hi, I just received my new keyboard (see subject line for details), it is the USB version. I have the following problem and could use your advise. At home I have my PC's connected through a KVM switch. Since the KVM switch has PS/2 connections for the keyboard and mouse, I use PS/2 to USB adapters for each. Unfortunately the keyboard does not seem to work through the KVM switch, but it does work when plugged into a PC directly. Any advise as to what this could be caused by is much appreciated. Thanks I've got the same problem with a Microsoft keyboard. Works plugged into the computer via USB, but not into my KVM switch through USB to PS/2 adapters. Old keyboard works fine (I'm typing this with it), but not the new one, so it isn't the connection. Thanks

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

Hello there, I have a Lite On SK-3211 1U

This product uses none-standard USB host controller and USB devices are not being enumerated properly within KVM. The company that designed this product is no longer in business.

Currently there no support for this specific keyboard/mouse on Belkin Dual User KVM over IP.
