Hello,
I use a Trendnet KVM TK207 to allow me to use the same monitor, keyboard and mouse to control a workstation and a server. The workstation runs Windows 7 and the server runs Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server. I'm currently using a wired mouse and keyboard that came with the HP workstation. I would like to switch to a wireless keyboard and mouse, but would prefer not to have to purchase a new KVM switch. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I would definitely contact TrendNet and ask them if they'll work. You should specify which mouse and keyboard you plan on purchasing because some models might not work.

For what it's worth, the added latency of wireless HID devices tends to be more than a little problematic with KVMs. I seriously doubt the TrendNET will work with it, but it IS possible. Generally speaking, if you are using a KVM, use wired HID devices, and the more standard the better.
