There should be a switch, or button on the kvm itself.

I have a belkin router i am having trouble connecting it. i dont know where to connect the ethernet cable. Does it go the computer or the modem?


the ethernet cable should be connected to the ethernet port of the router to the ethernet/network port of the computer. you will also need to connect a cable through the router and the modem, then a phone cable from the modem to the phone line.

I bought a belkin cable a couple of months ago in order to switch between two pc,s on one screen.Unfortunatly i forgot which buttons to press on my keyboard to switch screens can you help please


I may be behind the times but this is how I do it. Get a monitor data switch ($5-$10 used).On the back of the switch, connect each computer to input ports & the monitor to the output port. Set the knob on the front of the switch to each computer as you boot it. Turn switch to each computer as needed. You will have to turn a knob instead of pressing a key. If you can live with that it works great.

I bought an 2 port usb kvm switch. why are there 2 usb connectors on each cable what do i do with the 2nd one. model gcs22u


Pah,

The purpose for each of the USB plugs are likely 1 for your keyboard and one for your mouse to each of the PCs you attach to your KVM

Hope this Helps

We tried a Belkin Flip to bring our two computer screens together but after 5 minutes the mouse froze. We have a Citrix Server (Wyse terminal)and our Switchboard is a Mitel 5550IP consol. No one else...


1. Download and install ALL of the windows updates and service packs
2. Download and install any updated drivers for your Belkin Flip
3. Cool both computers down as much as possible to help prevent thermal overheat and lockup

Certan configurations can cause a lockup such as a Mitel 5550IP terminal and a Citrix Server

The prefured configuration is 2 identical desktop PCs

Mice can pose a problem , you can try moving the mice to a USB port

That may help clear up the situation of lockup.

Trying to hook up belkin wireless router to cable modem and don't know how the hook-up should be


Hello,

If you have your pc connected directly to your broadband modem through the ETH/LAN port on your pc then disconnect it from that port on your PC.

Then connect the same cable to your Belkin Routers Internet/WAN port. Then take the extra cable that came with the Belkin router and connect it to 1 of the 4 lan ports on the Belkin router. Then connect the other end to your PC in the LAN port.

After that, restart your PC and everything should be fine.

Thanks

I have recently bought a KVM switch off ebay and have connected the two computers I needed to, upto the switch. The first time round the switch didnt work. To check the cables I shut down the...


Depending on the KVM (Brand, Model etc) there should also be a hot key sequence that will allow you to switch between the PC's. See if the hot key sequence works.
Also, is this a PS/2 KVM or USB ? In some cases with USB adapters you have to let the computer start up while it is set to that port. And if it is USB, does it also have a PS/2 connector? If it does, you want to use one or the other, not both. That can cause it to malfunction.

    1. Check your Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) switch. If the system is connected to a monitor, mouse, and keyboard through a Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) switch, or console selector switch, then disconnect the switch and connect monitor, mouse, and keyboard directly to the system. If this solves the issue, please contact your switch manufacturer for support and compatibility on the switch. Some switches can have a firmware update applied to resolve common problems.

      Note: BladeCenter Telco chassis - The KVM module contains keyboard port, mouse port, Power LED, Location LED, Critical Telco Alarm LED, Major Telco Alarm LED, Minor Telco Alarm LED and a video port. The PS2 keyboard and mouse connectors are standard 6-pin Mini Din. The Telco alarms mirror the Telco alarms located on the front panel of the media tray because they use the same signal lines. The KVM module allows the connection of a VGA monitor for system maintenance and control. The video connector is a standard 15-pin VGA. The KVM module is hot-swappable. It is docked into an edge card connector located on the backplane:

    2. If you have your system daisy chained for KVM capabilities using the C2T port (e.g. xSeries 330),
      then you must flash the C2T firmware after flashing the system BIOS, in order for the mouse and keyboard to work. Otherwise, after a BIOS flash, you will lose keyboard/mouse capabilities unless you walk up to each machine and push the select button.

    • If you are using NetBAY Advanced Connectivity Technology (ACT) CAT5 cabling in your rack server, instead of KVM cabling, click here for ACT information.

    1. Check for POST/startup errors. If you are getting a POST/startup error on the keyboard and/or mouse:

    2. Verify that all items are firmly connected to the correct ports, and that the cables are undamaged with no bent pins. The PS/2 style mouse and keyboard ports look identical, but are not interchangeable. The mouse and keyboard must be attached to the correct ports in order to be recognized by the system and to function correctly.
    3. Swap each item for known good units. If a new item works where the original did not, then the original component must be faulty.

    4. If the keyboard works during the POST/BIOS screens, but not in the operating system, check software logs for device driver errors. Contact your software vendor for more support in configuring the I/O devices.

    5. Check the F1 Setup error logs for system component failures or errors. These are found under Event/Error Logs. Troubleshoot suspect components further to determine if the hardware is faulty. If an IBM component is determined to be faulty, please contact your local IBM Support Center for warranty replacement of the part(s). Please have the Field Replacement Unit (FRU) / Customer Replacement Unit (CRU) part number and Machine Type, model and serial number ready.

    1. Run hardware diagnostics. Replace any parts found defective.

    Download the latest diagnostics for your system
    1. If you can down the system, check the keyboard cable connector on the system unit for proper voltage.

    2. Power off the system.
    3. Disconect the keyboard cable form the system unit.
    4. Power on the system and check the keyboard cable connector on the system unit for the voltages shown:

      PIN Voltage (Vdc) 1 +5.0 2 Not used 3 Ground 4 +5.0 5 +5.0 6 Not used
    5. If the voltages are not correct, replace the system board. Otherwise, replace the keyboard.

    6. If these steps have not solved your problem:
