Was just looking for a replacement cable & stumbled across this.
This is around to the same price as some of the cheapos on ebuyer but you need to add postage to those & this is a belkin.
The cables alone are worth more than this in fleabay.
Elsewhere this model seems to be north of £40.

this is a belkin



A reason to avoid it tbh.

so if I have a wireless mouse and keyboard with a receiver that plugs into a USB port and I want to use this setup with both my PC's through one of these how can I get the receiver to plug in as the input devices if it connect via USB currently?

Thanks

they usually supply a usb to ps2 converter if u dont have 1 look on ebay/ amazon.

by the look of the spec and the photo, this is a pretty old spec KVM and you will need pc's that has old style ps2 keyboard/mouse sockets and VGA (most pc's will have this), as well as using ps2 mouse/keyboards, as it doesn't have usb sockets

i'm not sure if you could get away with using usb/ps2 changers. you certainly couldn't use wireless keyboard/mouse. you usually get usb to ps2 connectors to use wired usb keyboards/mice with older pcs, so that would let you connect to the KVM but i'm not sure if the changers would let you connect to a pc with only usb and no ps2

Just old obsolete gear.

I threw one away some time back, it's a while since I had PS/2 mouse & Keyboard ports on PCs I have owned!

Something like this will work as a very basic KVM Switch with USB Keyboard & Mice and is not a lot more expensive: misco.co.uk/app…328 for £16 plus delivery.

I agree with UNI , assume nothing

KVM are a very idiosyncratic technology, with various solution and few standard protocol, Especially at the cheap of the market .

The best you can hope for is that it works ( or is simulated ) as a plain 3 button wheel mouse and a bog standard UK 105 key keyboard.

once you start paying £100 plus you get HID emulation of the specific device.

PS2 is more reliable and predictable, once you start using USB to PS2 adaptors ( even worse PS2 to USB (like I tried), or Dual PS2 to single USB adaptors . or using those weird hybrid KB/MOUSE PS2 sockets on modern mobos or any other arcane plumbing to get from one technology to another then your on a sticky and unpredictable wicket.
Belkin PS2 is good - I still have my old F1DB104 worked with every PS2 device I ever shoved at it.
