Congratulations and thank you for purchasing the Wireless Desktop 280 by Belkin. We appreciate your business and we are sure you will enjoy years of reliable use with these high-qualityinput devices.

Although the Wireless Desktop 280 will function out-of-the-boxas a Human Interface Device (HID) or standard PS/2 keyboard and mouse, for advanced programmability and functionality we recommend that you use the included software. This will give you added flexibility and allow you to customize your settings and reassign keys to fit your preference.

Quick Setup | For PS/2 Connections

For PS/2 Connections

1.Be sure that your computer is powered off.

2.Connect the receiver to your computer’s PS/2

ports. The receiver has a two-headedconnector for the keyboard and mouse connection (purple is for the keyboard and the USB connection, and the green

adapter is for the mouse). There is also a diagram on

the top connector for identification. Your computer will either have a matching color scheme or an illustration next to the port, or both (See Fig. 1).

3.Install the batteries into your keyboard and mouse. Please make sure you follow the diagram on the inside of the battery compartment to ensure that you install them correctly.

4.Power on your computer.

5.The receiver automatically scans for and synchronizes the keyboard and mouse when you power on the computer. Your keyboard and mouse should now be functioning.

6.If synchronizing does not occur automatically, please refer to the information on “Synchronizing” in the Troubleshooting section at the end of this User Manual.

Quick Setup | For USB Connections

For USB Connections

1.Be sure that your computer is powered on. If you are running Windows 98 SE, Me, or 2000, you will need to have your old keyboard and mouse connected during the installation.

3. Connect only the receiver to your computer with the USB

connector. (Do not connect the purple PS/2 connection as it is not necessary in a USB environment) (See Fig. 2).

Fig. 2

In Windows 98 SE, Me, and 2000, you will need to go through the New Hardware Wizard setup with your old keyboard and mouse. Windows 98 SE may require you to insert your Windows 98 SE Installation CD into your computer’sCD-ROMdrive to complete the install.

5.If synchronizing does not occur automatically, please refer to the information on “Synchronizing” in the Troubleshooting
