Connect 1 Mouse And 1 Keyboard To Multiple Pc ( Computers )

I am trying to connect 1 mouse and 1 keyboard to multiple computers (pc's) (although the mouse is optional). In a perfect world it would be a ps2 connector on the keyboard although usb is ok if it is simpler. Now i appreciate kvm switches exist but they do not do want i require, i need the keyboard to send it's inputs to all the computers at the same time, for example: i have notepad as the active window on all the computers and type "xy2lk" on the keyboard, then "xy2lk" should be entered into notepad on all the pc's. In total i need to connect the keyboard (and mouse) to 5 pc's and need a hardware solution rather than software, i'm wondering about modifications to the keyboard wire to connect 5 ps2 connectors but have no idea if this is possible. Has anyone got any ideas ?

Connect Multiple Computers To One Wireless Pc

Can i connect multiple computers to one wireless computer? Ok so i am a computer person and i set up basic networks and a few servers. Now i know i have seen people use one computer to give internet access to another. I don't remember how they did it but i have seen it. Now my situation is a bit more complicated. I have 4 computers that sit in a closet connected to a switch. These all have tv tuners inside of them and i use mythbuntu to dvr television shows when i am unable to watch them. Now i don't use all 4 but i had four so i have them all hooked up. Now my question is can i connect those to the one frontend and be able to have all those computers access the internet through the one wireless connection. I don't want to buy 4 more wireless cards. My front end is windows xp x32.

Networking Multiple Computers

Here's my particular situation. This is for work. We have 6 "all-in-one" computers (these *** gateway things which have the whole computer in one unit-causes bad overheats) which have an ethernet connection built in. That problems solved. I know how to do file sharing/printer sharing etc. My question is how do i connect them? In ancient days i'd use two ethernet cards in each and daisy-chain them. How do i do it now? Do i get a router? A switch? I'm clueless here. Btw, the intent is to have one main computer containing the needed programs and the others are "slaves" which run the shared programs on them. This may seem a little silly to some so i'll explain it this way. It's for a classified network. You have a removable hdd in the main computer and that's it. The other computers access the info but never save any on their hdd so you can leave the slave computers out and just secure the classified hdd. Saves time and space. So, who can help me out?

Itunes On Multiple Computers

Alright, so when i first got a 2nd generation nano back in 2007, i had my music on my computer and it worked great, then in 2009 i got an itouch and the music downloads also worked perfectly. I kept my itunes on my pc. However, when i got a new laptop this last fall, i went to download itunes to my new laptop, and the program downloaded, however the music that was on my itouch was only there when my ipod was syncing, even though it was the same account and everything. Recently, i just inherited an old iphone, which i would like to transfer my music to. So the main question is: how do i get all my music from my old computer's itunes to my new computers itunes, and my new iphone that i will use as an ipod touch. Additional details:

-Both of my computers are pc's (not macs)

-I've tried backing up my itouch, but it didn't sync all the music onto my new computer

-I am moving them so i don't have to use my old computer for itunes. -Everything is on the same account.

Connect 2 Computers Through Router

Is it possible for 2 computers to be connected through a router?

Answer:- yes. The easiest way is to have the two computers with fixed ip address's. Set this in the router, so that it relates the mac address of the laptops to a fixed ip address. Then, when they are both connected, open up the windows explorer and click on tools-map network drive. Search for the other computer or enter its fixed ip address. Do for both if both computers have to see files on the other.

Connect Three Computers To One Printer

How to use a switch to connect three computers and one printer to be used by all computers? No file sharing?

Answer:- this is easy if the printer already has a network port. Just put it on the local network with the pcs, configure each pc separately to work with the printer and the printer will take care of refereeing which jobs get printed in which order. If that's a usb printer, activating print sharing is the easiest/fastest means to share the printer. One computer (which must be left on) runs the printer and the other pcs send their print jobs to the key pc. Other options include getting a small print server device (connects the printer's usb cable to the network) but that can be somewhat difficult to get working smoothly.

Connect One Monitor To Two Computers

I was looking at kvm switches, but they are awfully expensive. I am hoping someone knows of a better option for me. I have one 22" wide screen dvi monitor that i like to use with my vista desktop and my mac laptop. I want to say the resolution on the monitor is 1680x1050 or something like that, i am blanking on the resolution and not at home right now. I use the blue tooth connection on the laptop for the keyboard, so i don't really need to be able to connect keyboards or anything. Just need to be able to switch the monitor between the computers without having to crawl under my desk each time. Any ideas?

Not All Computers Will Connect To Wireless Network

I've set up a wireless network at home, but not all the computers will connect to it. What do i do? I set up an encrypted wireless network (wpa-2 tkip/aes) with no problems at all and was able to connect an ipod touch, a netbook with windows 7, and a laptop with windows xp after entering the password. However, my laptop with windows vista cannot access the internet after connecting to the network. If i take the encryption off then i can access the interent but obviously i don't want to have an open network. Obviously there is some problem with the way my laptop (a toshiba satellite if that means anything) deals with the encryption. I've tried the steps my computer recommended including turning the router and modem on and off, resetting the wireless adapter on my computer and refreshing my ip address all to no avail. Any ideas?
