Hi All. I just purchased a wireless keyboard and mouse. Prior to this purchase I was sharing my monitor wired keyboard and mouse between 2 computers through a Belkin switch. After my purchase I am unable connect the wireless receiver for the keyboard and mouse to the switch using the PS2 to USB adapter I have. What equipment should I purchase to make this work correctly or how should I hook it up? Thanks. Carletta

Hi Mark,

the model # is OmniView E Series 2-port KVM Switch. F1DB102P. Any help you could suggest would be great. Or if there is a different solution that would be great as well. Thank you. Carletta

You are going to need a different KVM switch. Here are 3 recommended by Belkin, the mfg of the switch that you are now using:

Remember, the software for the mouse/keyboard has to be installed on both computers

I forgot to add, I searched thinking you had a flat screen monitor with a DVI connection. If you have a VGA connection, these are your options:
