Question: Am needing to control a mix of computers running Windows 2000 up through Win 7. One of the computers only uses PS2 and another only uses USB for the mouse and keyboard. Also need to relocate them approx 30 feet from the switch and keep audio capabilities. Would this unit be suitable and if so, what adapter cables would be needed? Thanks.

Question: We have been having little issue with where two port or four port switch box will not work on one of the ports. We have updated the bios of PC / Switch box and still no luck. Same switch box works on Windows XP but will not work on Windows 7. Or any Windows 7 machine for that matter. This is a very urgent matter because we are rolling out Windows 7 in our environment and needs this resolved ASAP.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, detailed product support is beyond the scope of this simple FAQ.

Having said that, this issue my be tied to the way in which Windows 7 manages idle USB ports. Here is a link to a discussion for a potential workaround found at the Avocent Support Community site:

Question: I need the 6' and 12' part numbers for all three cabled to operate this device. All three cables mean the source and two destination cables.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The source cables (from server to KVM switch) are part numbers SVUSB-6 (6ft) and SVUSB-9 (9ft).

To attach a Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor and audio, this switch will simply use the cables attached to those devices - plugged directly into the switch itself.

Question: Hello, I have a trouble with USB Hub in 2-port model. Every device that is connected to the Hub ports seem to have no power (i.e. LED in optical mouse is off). I have two-PC connected and no external power. Maybe these ports are turned off and there's a key sequence to turn them on, or these ports are enabled only with external power adapter? Thank you in advance!
