I have two laptops: a G3 and and G4
I've connected them to a KVM switch, as well as an additional keyboard, mouse and monitor. I purchased a MiniView Micro USB PLUS KVM Switch from Iogear.
For the first few weeks everything peformed flawlessly. Then one day, I sat down and that the keyboard was no longer responding. I unplugged the USB connections to the computers, waited a few seconds then plugged everything back in and bingo, problem solved.
Everything worked fine for the next couple of days, then it happened again! Ok, I know what to do -- so I just unplug everything then plug it back in again.
Now, this is happening like two or three times a day. Seems I'm constantly having to power cycle this thing which is a real PITA. Of course I tossed my receipt after ordering it so I'm stuck.
So, I'm looking to get another switch. I was thinking of a Belkin, but I just did some research and found some product reviews describing the same kinds of problems.
Can anyone recommend a good KVM switch that won't break the bank?
