Connecting to a Belkin KVM Switch via an Ethernet cable
“Unmanaged switch” A Belkin KVM network switch is a so-called computer-networking device. This means that the KVM is designed to work immediately after connecting it. You do not have to worry about configuring anything on the computers on your network, you literally just plug it in and you’re ready to go. You connect your Belkin KVM Switch to your router, which then shares the network of all the computers in your area. For this, you just need Ethernet cables.
- Plugin the power cable of your Belkin KVM Network Switch. The KVM, like a desktop computer, requires a physical power connection to work.
- Plug an Ethernet cable into the network entrance on the back of the Belkin KVM Switch.
- Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your router. Use the input on your router that you usually use to connect your device to the main computer on your network if you were just setting up a regular network in your home.
- Connect all your other computers to your router via an Ethernet cable. One end of a cable plugs into the back of the computer, while the other end plugs into the router. The Belkin Network KVM Switch creates your network, while the router you use allows all connected computers to access that network simultaneously.
- Turn on your Belkin KVM network switch. Your computers are connected to each other on the network.
