I suggest you...

I need to switch back and forth between two computers and am wondering if I can do so using the same Display Link set up? Has anyone tried

Two computers, one Displaylink?

        This is exactly what I am getting ready to attempt, so please advise: 2 laptops with 1 connected to my personal ISP and the other connected to my work VPN; I want them to both have access to the large screen monitor. So, install the drivers on both laptops...anything else?

        I misread the question, sorry, but my previous answer still might be helpful.

        I switch back and forth between a Dell 3100 DisplyLink dock and a Pluggables DisplayLink dock and its nothing but trouble. Sometimes it's simple scaling issues, sometimes things lock up, sometimes monitors freeze or other symptoms. Usually restarting the PC and powering off the dock solves the problem. Eventually it reaches a point where that doesn't work and you have to reinstall the DisplayLink drivers which fixes it. may be mistaken, but with the latest driver installation there appears to be no way to reinstall or repair the drivers, it simply tells tells you already have the drivers. Bad move!
