How can I get my mouse functions back after plugging into a passthrough switch?

After adding new hardware to my computer setup, my "extra" mouse buttons and mouse wheel no longer work.

Here's the situation: I have a Logitech Cordless MX keyboard and mouse
hooked to my computer, the kind of mouse with the extra buttons for Back, Forward, etc. on it. It's worked fine for the years that I've had it.
Now this morning I've added a second desktop computer to the office and am using a OmniView Keyboard/Mouse passthrough from Belkin to control both computers with the one keyboard and mouse. The problem is that since plugging into the passthrough neither computer recognizes the Logitech mouse or its mouse wheel and extra buttons. The proper software is installed on both machines, but both computers only see a "regular" two button mouse.
Has anyone run into this problem before? How can I solve it? I need my extra buttons back!
