This sounds more like a hardware problem to me. (In which case, your pc
shop would be the place to go to and ask for help.) Or, am I missing
There was a discussion about this earlier this week, I believe that the
problem is that the Linksys KVMs are pass-through and some operating systems
need to have the Store and Forward type KVM. I had this issue with my
notebook & Smoothwall (lLinux based standalone Firewall) and am trying to
find a particular D-Link KVM which is the Store and Forward type.
