Wireless Optical Mouse and Keyboard with Belkin Omniview SE KVM

I asked this in the microsoft.public newsgroups for hardware, but no response as
of yet. Has anyone had any experience with using the Wireless Optical Desktop
suite with a Belkin KVM switch? I've got an Omniview SE 4 port unit. It supports
my wired PS2 Intellimouse Explorer Optical just fine. Any issues I should be
aware of using a wireless combo through a KVM?
Thanks,
-steve

The OmniView SE doesn't handle the Intellipoint driver very well beyond just
the wheel on the mouse. Also, the newer Intellipoint drivers don't seem to
work at all with this unit or my unit is going bad, I haven't done a lot of
testing to see which. One of the newer USB KVMs would probably work better
if all of your computers will support a USB keyboard and mouse. If so,
you'll want to make sure that "Legacy USB" or something similar is turned on
in the BIOS before you do this.

Thanks for the response, Wayne. I have good success with the Intellipoint driver
through the KVM as long as the booting PC is active on the KVM through the
completion of Windows startup. I am assuming that this would be the same with
the new unit. I imagine that the basic functionality can be emulated by the KVM,
but for full functionality, Windows needs to interrogate the mouse as it starts
to determine what functions are available. Good idea on the USB route - I'll
keep that in mind if I encounter significant problems trying out my SE with this
suite.
