OVERVIEW
Where to Place the KVM Switch
The compact size of the KVM Switch makes it perfect for desktop
placement. Consider the following when deciding where to place the KVM
Switch: whether or not you intend to use the direct-access port selectors;
the length of the cables attached to your keyboard, mouse, and monitor;
the location of your CPUs from your Console; and the length of the cables
you will use to connect your computers to the KVM Switch.
Cable Distance Requirements
USB signals are the strongest when transmitted up to 15 feet between
the KVM Switch and the CPU. Beyond 15 feet, probability of signal
degradation increases, which can cause the device to fail.
Cautions and Warnings
Avoid having cables near fluorescent lights, air conditioning equipment, or
machines that create electrical noise (e.g., vacuum cleaners).

STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE
This section provides complete instructions for the hardware setup of a
single KVM Switch. (F1DD102U, F1DD104U)
Installing the KVM Switch Base
Hold the main housing with one hand and the base with the other.
With the narrow part of the base facing toward the rear of the housing,
align the hooks of the base to the base holes located underneath the
housing. Put the hooks through the holes and push the base toward the
front of the housing to lock the base into place. Please refer to diagram
for assistance.

STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE
Installing the HID USB Driver
Note: On some computers, you must enable USB support on your system
BIOS. Please reference your computer manufacturer’s manual or
motherboard manual to verify that USB support is enabled.
1. Connect the 9V, 1A power adapter to the KVM Switch.
2. Boot up the computer you wish to connect via USB as you would
normally with the USB keyboard, monitor, and USB mouse connected
directly to the computer.
3. After the operating system finishes loading, using a standard
USB A-to-B cable, insert the end with the B-type connector to any
KVM Switch CPU port. Insert the other end of the cable with the Atype connector to an available port on your USB computer. Your
computer should recognize your KVM Switch and automatically install
the HID USB driver. Once the driver is installed, you can power down
your computer.
4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 for each additional USB computer you wish
to connect to the KVM Switch.
10
STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE
Connecting the Console
1. Power down your computers.
2. Remove the rear panel of the KVM Switch to expose the ports.
3.

designated USB port with the keyboard symbol
on the KVM Switch.
Note: You must connect the USB keyboard
to the designated USB connector to
have keyboard hot key
switching functions. For more
information on keyboard hot
keys, see page 14.
4.
Connect the USB mouse to
the designated USB port
with the mouse symbol
on the KVM Switch.
5. Connect any USB devices
you wish to share to the USB hub labeled “Device 1, Device 2” on the
KVM Switch.
Note: When sharing USB storage devices, CD-RWs, or
hard drives, do not switch while operating.
6.
Connect the monitor cable to the
designated “Console DVI”
port on the KVM Switch.
11
STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE
7. Using the audio cable attached to your speakers, connect the male
3.5mm plug to “audio” on the Console of your KVM Switch. (This step
is not required to use the KVM Switch.)
8. Using the mic cable attached to your microphone, connect the male
3.5mm plug to “mic” on the Console of your KVM Switch. (This step is
not required to use the KVM Switch.)
12
STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE
Connecting the PCs
1. Using your Belkin KVM Cables for SOHO Series with Audio (Belkin part
number F1D9201-XX), connect the USB cable from your computer’s
USB port to the USB port on the KVM Switch.
2. Take the DVI cable and connect the male end of the cable to the DVI
port on the back of the computer. Connect the other male end of the
DVI cable to the back of the KVM Switch for CPU1.
Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for all computers.
13
STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE
3. Using the audio cable, connect one end of the male 3.5mm plug to
the “Speaker Out” jack of your sound card or computer, and connect
the other end of the “audio” jack to your KVM Switch.
4. Using a second audio cable, connect one end of the male 3.5mm plug
to the “Mic Out” jack of your sound card or computer, and connect the
other end of the “mic” jack to your KVM Switch.
Powering Up the Systems
Once all cables have been connected, turn on all CPUs that are attached
to the KVM Switch. All computers can be powered on simultaneously. Your
KVM Switch should be ready for use.
14
USING YOUR KVM SWITCH
You can select which computer to operate by either the direct-access port
selector located on the front panel of the KVM Switch or through
keyboard hot key commands. Note that it will take 1–2 seconds for the
video to display after switching. This is due to the refresh rate of the
video signal. There is also re-synchronization of the mouse and keyboard
signal that takes place. This is normal operation and ensures that proper
synchronization is established.
Selecting a Computer Using Direct-Access Port Selectors
You can directly select which computer you wish to control by pressing
the corresponding direct-access port selector next to the appropriate
port. The LED will be lit to indicate that the port is currently selected.
Selecting a Computer Using Keyboard Hot Key Commands
Note: You must connect the USB keyboard to the designated USB
connector to have keyboard hot key switching function on
the keyboard.
You can command the KVM Switch to switch ports with a simple keyboard
command sequence by using the [SCROLL LOCK] key and [UP], [DOWN]
arrow keys. To send commands to the KVM Switch, the [SCROLL LOCK] key
must be pressed twice within two seconds. You will hear a beep for
confirmation. Then you can press the [UP], [DOWN] arrow keys to switch
between ports.
Switch to next active port,
[UP] arrow
Switch to previous active port,
[DOWN] arrow
You can switch directly to any port by entering the port number of the port
you wish to use. For example, if you press [SCROLL LOCK], [SCROLL LOCK],
[2], the computer on port 2 will be selected.
Switch to port 2—#2 key
Switch to port 4—#4 key
15
USING YOUR KVM SWITCH
AutoScan Mode
In AutoScan mode the KVM Switch remains on one port for 10 seconds
before switching to the next. This time interval cannot be changed.
To enable AutoScan mode press [SCROLL LOCK], [SCROLL LOCK],
[0], [0]
Note: There is no mouse or keyboard control in this mode. This is necessary
to prevent errors. Otherwise, if the user is moving the mouse or using the
keyboard when the KVM switches to the next port, communication between
the computer and KVM Switch could be interrupted and cause erratic mouse
movement, or wrong characters to display when using the keyboard.
To disable AutoScan mode, press the space bar.
Enable AutoScan mode—#0 key
Connecting USB Devices to the Built-In 2-Port Hub
The KVM Switch includes a built-in 2-port USB v1.1 device hub that allows
you to connect two additional shared peripherals. When you connect any
USB device to the KVM Switch, that device can be accessed through
whichever computer you are currently using.
Note: This is not suitable for storage devices such as LS-120 drives and Zip®
drives because you cannot dynamically switch ports and disconnect a
mounted storage device when it is in use by the operating system. For
example, you are working on computer 1 with a file open that is stored on a
Zip drive connected to the KVM Switch. If you switch to computer 2 while
the file is still open, you will get a “file lost or corrupted” error message on
computer 1. The same will occur when you are using a streaming device
such as the Belkin VideoBus USB video capture device. You can switch from
one computer safely to the next, only if the VideoBus is no longer in use by
the first computer. You will notice that after the USB KVM switches to
another computer, the mouse remains inoperative for one or two seconds.
This is normal, and ensures that proper USB synchronization is established.
