Hi, I can't remember what buttons to push on my keyboard to switch from one computer to the other with my belkin 2 port kvm switck? can you help me, Ive just set up the system in another office. Thanks...


Short answer:
There are two ways to switch from one machine to the other with the keyboard
1. Press Scroll Lock key twice, then the Up or Down arrow key.
2. Press Scroll Lock key twice, then enter 01 or 02.

Long answer (from the manual posted at www.belkin.com):
You can select which computer to operate by either the front-panel push button
located on the top of the Switch or through hot key commands. Note that it will
take 1-2 seconds for the video to display after switching. This is due to the
refresh of the video signal. A re-synchronization of the mouse and keyboard
signal also takes place. This is normal operation and ensures that proper
synchronization is established.
You can conveniently change ports on the Switch through a keyboard command
sequence using the "SCROLL LOCK" key and up and down arrow keys. To send
commands to the Switch, press the "SCROLL LOCK" key twice within two seconds.
You will hear a beep for confirmation. Then you can press the up or down arrow
keys to switch between ports.

You can switch directly to any port by entering the Switch port number you wish
to use. For example, if you press "SCROLL LOCK", "SCROLL LOCK", "2", the
computer on port 2 will be selected.
AutoScan Mode
In AutoScan mode, the Switch remains on one port for eight seconds before
switching to the next. This time interval cannot be changed.
To enable AutoScan mode, press "SCROLL LOCK", "SCROLL LOCK", "S".
Note: There is no mouse or keyboard control in this mode by design, in order to
prevent errors. If it were enabled, the user could move the mouse or use the
keyboard while the KVM Switch is switching to the next port. This could interrupt
communication between the computer and Switch that might cause erratic mouse
movement, or result in errant display of characters when using the keyboard.
To disable AutoScan mode, press the space bar.

What is the hot key


I really wanted to love this switch. However, the best thing that I can say about it is...it works as advertised. Whoa, so what's the problem? Well, the switch has two major problems. The first isn't really Linksys' problem; it's apparent on other manufacturer's switches as well. The switch doesn't support 4th mouse buttons or scroll wheels*. Once the mouse is connected to the switch, those functions are disabled. The Belkin literature (for the OmniView mentioned above) even goes as far to say you should use generic 2-button mouse drivers! While it's not the end of the world, it's pretty frustrating to lose those features.
The other problem, however, renders the switch useless for me. Instead of having to reach for the button on the switch to change PC's, they have built in a keyboard shortcut. Sounds like a great feature right? It would be except that they have made the keyboard shortcut CTRL CTRL. If you hit the CTRL key twice quickly, you will change PC's. The CTRL key?? Why would they choose a key that is used often? I use the CTRL key for firing during games. Imagine what happens when you fire rapidly. Yes, you get the strobe effect as you switch back and forth between PC's! Also, if you use the CTRL key for editing (CTRL C, CTRL V, etc.), an inadvertant double stroke on the CTRL key will switch PC's. This is unbelievable. Unfortunately, the hotkey can neither be changed nor disabled. In contrast, while it is also unchangeable, the Belkin unit uses the Scroll Lock key. This is a much more logical choice because the Scroll Lock is basically obsolete in today's computing experience.
This is some hope, though, because their 4-port switch uses a a keyboard combination of ALT CTRL SHIFT # (where #=1,2,3 and 4). While it is a little more cumbersome, it prevents accidental switching of PC's. Also, the 4-port version has Auto-Scan, which allows you to automatically cycle between your PC's. That option is not available on the 2-port version.
I recommend getting the switch kit instead of just the switch alone. While it doesn't cost a lot more ($18), the SuperVGA cables are worth the price. They are normally $23 each! I tried standard VGA cables on the Belkin switch and the signal degradation was unacceptable. hope that you get the information u need

Not working


Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the right USB ports on the switch. If you plug the keyboard into the mouse USB port the hotkeys will not work! The USB ports on the KVM switch are labeled under each port, with a mouse and keyboard icon respectively.From the Quick Start Guide/Manual: The Numlock hotkeys are listed as:
[Num Lock]+[-] [1] Switches to output 1
[Num Lock]+[-] [2] Switches to output 2
[Numlock]+[-] [A] Auto-scans and chooses which ever port is connected.
Alternatively: Tap [Scroll Lock] twice to automatically switch between ports.
Note: I've never been able to get the Numlock key combinations to work correctly. I always just use double-tap [Scroll Lock] trick to switch.
If you get stuck with your scroll-lock and Alpha lock lights flashing, just hit [Esc] to fix it.

Can't switch ports using PC keyboard


Make sure that your keyboard is connected to the keyboard port of the switch. The USB ports on the switch has pictures that indicates where the keyboard and mouse should be connected.

The hotkey combination is CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + Port no.(1,2,3 or 4) + ENTER

Note: "tap the keys one at a time and not at the same time"

CS62U 2 Port USBKVM Switch not switching


Are you sure, the usb cable belonging to the keyboard is plugged in the appropriate slot?
I have a wireless keyboard/mouse, so I have only 1 usb cable going into the switch. The first time, is plugged it into the slot of the mouse, and the switch did not work, so I plugged the cable in the other slot, and now everything works properly.
