It has been some time since i used this particular kvm. one thing is true about all kvm's, you must boot each computer one at a time and each computer must be active on your monitor. so, turn off both computers and attach your kvm. turn on the computer that is attached to side A or 1. when the computer has reached the login screen you may boot up computer 2. check the documentation that came with your kvm, this particular belkin has a 3 stroke hot key sequence for switching. you can also find it online at the belkin site.

hope this helps,
brian

    If it's a really old F1DK102Pv the hotkey is LeftCtrl, LeftCtrl, [1 or 2] . The newer F1DK102P has a hotkey of ScrollLock, ScrollLock, [1 or 2]. The Belkin site just has the manual for the newer version. Even more confusing, I'd swear that when I used to use this switch with two OTHER computers, the hotkey WAS ScrollLock. But now ScrollLock doesn't work and LeftCtrl does. Go figure.

I don't know how to turn on the wireless capability on myself?


What type of computer Desktop or Laptop & Make ???...

If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.
Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.
This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.
When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.
If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.
Locate the wireless switch on your computer.
It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.
Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.
Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.
The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.
Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

How to connect 2 computers to a dlink 4 port kvm switch?


The unit comes with all the cables in order to connect up to four computers to one KVM switch. If you're only using two computers, then you'll only need to connect one computer to Computer 1, and the second computer to Computer 2. The KVM will recognize that only two devices are connected, and generally skip the inputs for computers 3 and 4 until they have a device connected.

Kvm switch not recognized by one of my computers


Have a close look at the NIC assembly in both the computers.Simply link one computer to the other and see that it detects this or not. Alternatively bypass the switch and try to connect to the broadband from each PC. If u are able to access the net without the switch, then most probably the switch is conked out.Change the switch...................sodeep

Can's switch without it switching back to first PC


Sadly, it is probably the KVM as this particular model has a string of failures and is only rated 2 out of 5 stars on Amazon due to poor performance. :( http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-F1DK102U-2-Port-Switch-Cables/dp/B0001JXAQ6/ref=sr_1_1/105-6999807-3936431?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1187826004&sr=8-1 What I would do first is plug in Computer 2 directly to the monitor, keyboard and mouse with no KVM. If those work fine, it is probably not a computer issue; if you don't get video here, then it is a seperate issue with that PC. If Computer 2 is working, plug both computers into the KVM but switch the cables (plug Computer 1 into the KVM using Computer 2's cables). If Computer 2 shows up and can't switch to Computer 1, then it is the KVM messing up.
