    PS2 - USB keyboard/mice convertor

    I've got a belkin kvm at home and recently has to plug in a PC with no PS2 sockets for mice or keyboard!

    Are they any devices that anyone actually uses (bought one 2 years ago - didn't work) to connect PS2 mice/keyboards to USB only PCs

    regards

    Simon

    The PS/2 -> USB adaptors are device specific and usually come with the device.

    If you didn't get one with the device, tough cookies.

    I use a 4 port belkin kvm here with a ps/2 usb converter plugged into a poweredge SC430 that only has usb sockets.

    It works.

    Sometimes it goes screwy and the mouse goes all over the place.

    I've just bought an 8 port belkin pro kvm that has usb and ps/2.

    You can get y-cables which take 2x PS2 into 1x USB, useful for plugging full-size keyboards and mice into laptops; you could use two of those.

    here you go http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/106560 I use them all the time. I know that maplin do them as well but a bit more expensive. I would never buy this item from ebay as postage would just add to much. i only paid a fiver and if you order something else and total value is ov about £30 get free dilevery.
