I may be wrong but do not have a wireless dongle thingy attached to the computer that uses the wireless keyboard and mouse? If so then the other PC will not have the dongle.
I am not sure if you can plug the dongle thingy into the KVM switch and the two PC's will see it, I would not have thought so.

A cheap mouse and keyboard might be the answer.
As I said I might be wrong.

Try plugging the wireless dongle into the USB port on the KVM switch.

If there are no USB ports on the KVM switch, then you will need to buy one that has this. Still not guaranteed to work, but it did with this £15-16 KVM switch click here - see the first customer review by Les B. G
