My Iogear mouse wont work

I purchases a wireless Iogear keyboard/mouse set. The keyboard works perfectly but I cant get the mouse to work. I guess it is not connecting to the wireless emitter. I read some other places that it takes time for it to connect, but I've tried about ten times (following the directions in the instruction pamphlet). Does anyone have any suggestions??

In order for you to make the mouse work with your computer, please try the steps below:

1. Make sure that you're using fresh batteries.

2. Make sure that the mouse is turned on.

3. Hold down the connect button on the receiver (the mouse cradle) and hold down the connect button under neath the mouse at the same time for five seconds and then release the buttons.

4. Try moving the mouse around and that should work.

Just hooked up the KVM cable and when I switch to the second computer, the mouse and keyboard do not work. Can someone help me with this?


Sounds like there's a bad connection on the second computer, may just have to plug another mouse/keyboard in.
(I sometimes use a wireless usb keyboard/mouse combo)

Hi . .. I want to use this KVM switch to connect


The GCS632U has keyboard and mouse emulation that may not work with all wireless combos. If your wireless combo is going to work the single USB connection would need to go into the keyboard port as that is the only port that will recognize the hot key switching commands. If the wireless combo still has problems then try using a USB wired keyboard to ensure the GCS632U is working correctly.

Repeated IOGear KVM switch failures


As a wild guess, it sounds like a static discharge MIGHT be affecting the switcher causing it to crash.

Try increasing your humidity to 40% and grounding yourself before touching the keyboard... This is the season for these static electricity problems... get nipped all the time and you MAY not even feel it to be enough to zap the switch.

LIGHTS ARE ON CURSOR DOES NOT WORK HAS BEEN WORKING FOR 2YEARS WITH NO PROBLEM .HAVE ALRADY UNPLUGED AND RESTARTED ALL SYSTEMS. IT IS AN IOGEAR GKM531RA WIRELESS. KEY BOARD IS WORKING FINE -BATTERIES IN...


The GKM531RA comes with a USB dongle which is connected to the computer.

Since you mentioned that the batteries are okay. Locate the small button on the dongle (connect button) and look for the connect button underneath the mouse.

Hold the connect button at the same time for 5 seconds ONLY, and release them both. The mouse should work.

If that did not help, try to use the keyboard and mouse in a different computer.

Last, contact IOGEAR and have them RMA the device. Meaning that the mouse has a hardware defect.

Thank you and good luck!

4-port usb kvw switch #GCS634U


The GCS634U is designed and tested to work only with a standard USB keyboard and mouse. However, most wireless keyboards and mice work with it, but they cannot guarantee any specific model or brand that would work correctly.

As you can see, this KVM switch is a bus powered device (meaning it only gets power from the USB ports of the computers). If the computer cannot provide enough power for the KVM switch to function correctly, then the wireless keyboard will be affected.

You may try using the IOGEAR GKM541RA. It's tested to work with the GCS634U. Or you may also try using a self-powered USB hub (meaning, it has it's own power adapter) and connect it in between the KVM switch and the computer. That self-powered USB hub will be the one that will add up power to the KVM switch and help it to function properly.

A mouse that wont work at all


Below is a link to the pdf document for your mouse. Please scroll down to the section titled 'Windows'. This section refers to the blinking light on the mouse, and what steps you need to perform next. I hope this helps.

Make sure the keyboard/mouse receiver is connected to the keyboard port on the KVM -- there is an embossed icon near each port -- mouse and keyboard.

Mac and Vista


Operating System doesn't deal anything on your problem. The problem depends on the brand of you computers or the type of keyboard you are using.

The GCS632U is designed to work with standard USB keyboard and mouse only. And wireless and gaming keyboards and mice are not guaranteed to work correctly with this KVM switch. If any one of you is using the new Mac Aluminum keyboard, this keyboard will not work with the older version of the GCS632U. But IOGEAR releases a new batch of GCS632U that would work with the Apple Aluminum keyboard.

If you have an Apple Aluminum keyboard that does not work with the GCS632U, you may contact the IOGEAR Tech support and they will process a Return Merchandize Authorization (RMA) if your device is still under the warranty period.

To resolve your keyboard issue, try to power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers, disconnect also the keyboard and mouse from the KVM switch. Leave it disconnected for two minutes. After two minutes, reconnect everything and reboot the computers.
