Pre-Configuration
Step-by-Step Installation Guide
Where to Place the Switch
The Switch is designed for positioning on the desktop. The exact placement will
be based on the location of your CPUs and length of your cables.
This section provides complete instructions for the hardware setup of a
single Switch.

VGA signals are best retained when transmitted up to eight feet. Beyond eight
feet, probability of video degradation increases with an increase in distance.
For this reason, your USB computer should be placed within eight feet of the
KVM Switch.
1. Make sure the computer is powered on.
Cautions and Warnings
Avoid placing cables near fluorescent lights, air conditioning equipment, or
machines that create electrical noise (e.g., vacuum cleaners).
Connecting Computers to the Switch
2. Verify that your USB keyboard and mouse work properly with your computer
before you install the Switch.
3. Using the attached cables, take the
VGA cable and connect it to the
VGA port on the first computer.
4. Connect the USB keyboard KVM
cable to the keyboard port on
the computer.
5. Connect the green speaker KVM
cable to the speaker jack on the
computer.
6. Connect the pink mic KVM cable to
the mic jack on the computer.
7. Repeat steps 1 through 6
for the additional computer
to be connected to
the Switch.
