I am not sure about MX500, but this kvm switch works fine with all major OS. So, it should work fine with MX500 too. You can always try, just view its specifications and you may find it useful.

Wireless keyboard and mouse works fine with computer but when I attempt to use it on the f1dh104l switch it does not recognize the mouse or keyboard. it is a dell e6400 laptop that i'm attempting to...


the problem is that most Wireless Keyboard and Mice combos use Composite USB, the KVM however is expecting one signal on each entry port (one for mouse, and one for Keyboard).

replace yoru wireless Combo for a standard Keyboard and Mouse to make this work.

A work around would be using a MS Wireless Mouse and a different brand of Wireless Keyboard using both Wireless receivers and plug them into different ports on the KVM

How to restart my computer after sleep mode


Your Logitech cordless desktop MX 5500 will have a sleep mode button which when pressed, the system should start sensing the keyboard activity. In case if this is not happening, the hardware is failing to sense the port where Cordless Desktop is attached. Try to check if you have the apt driver installed and if the desktop supports this function from a cordless desktop. Is this product a branded one ? If yes, please check if then its better to consult the manufacturers help line with out trying for more options.

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.

Keys stop working


Sorry to inform you but the keyboard needs repair. I've been a wireless keyboards and mice user for years. I've been to this problem before. First I thought it was just the battery or the wireless dongle, until I sent the keyboard to the manufacturer for repair.

I would suggest to contact the manufacturer for repair if the keyboard is still under the warranty.

Have a great day!

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.

KVM freeze, mouse and keyboard failure upon keypress


When ever trouble shooting a KVM that has a problem with one computer always swap the cables at the computer end -- that will tell you if you have a computer or KVM issue.

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.

Can't Use Wireless Mouse


I?ve had issues with USB mice on the more inexpensive KVM switches. I?m currently using a Belkin OmniView using a Microsoft Explorer USB optical mouse and a PS2 to USB adaptor. The adaptors I use are from Cyberguys.com and work well for most of the USB mice we have.
