    Default Ps2 Male to female USB?

    Hey there,

    I am trying to work this out and it shouldn't be that hard but..

    Just got a nice new KVM switch.
    And set it up so I can switch between Linux and Windows Desktops.

    BUT I was wanting to use my pretty Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard which is USB - but the KVM uses old school PS2 adapters.

    So I am thinking it needs:

    PC1 ps2=========ps2
    KVM =ps2port adapter -- USB Wireless keyboard etc
    Linux1 ps2=======ps2


    But all I am finding all the wrong combinations

    USB to PS2 are available not sure if a double can be found though. I keep one on hand for working with older comps that don't have USB or need PS2 to use the BIOS

    I think this is what you're after.

    These adaptors are only useful with keyboards that can provide both USB and PS2 type signalling - the adaptor does not convert from one protocol to another; it simply is a wiring adaptor between two connector types. Usually, keyboards that can support both USB and PS2 come with the adaptor.
    Nothing happens until something happens
