        Comments about 1ft USB to PS/2 Keyboard/Mouse Adapter Cable:

        I bought this Cables To Go adapter to use with a Cables To Go KVM switch, Window XP PC, and Windows 7 PC. The Windows 7 PC only had USB ports and no PS2 so I though this would be prefect. The adapter does work but I have noticed when I press a key using my Windows 7 machine (which this adapter is connected to) the input for the key I press sometimes sticks. The problem is easily solved by pressing the key again but it's a bit annoying. Not sure if it is a Windows 7 issue with this adapter or the adapters issue since I haven't tried it on my Windows XP machine.

              We would recommend using 32185 for barcode scanners. Part 27225 is only for PS/2 mice and keyboards.

            Q:

            I have a HP desktop with PS2 connections and a Dell desktop with USB connections. These are going into a KVM switch with PS2 connections.

            I have the Dell (USB)connected with an adapter similar to your adapter.

            The KVM switch will switch everything except the mouse on the Dell (USB)...

            Question, will your adapter handle both the mouse and keyboard from my Dell (USB)?

            Thank you.... Jim @

              A:

              I would recommend 32185 to use with a KVM switch. The 32185 will handle both PS/2 mouse and keyboard from a KVM through a single USB port. This adapter is best for connecting a regular PS/2 keyboard and mouse to a USB port.

            I am trying to use this with a Win98 laptop, and need a driver for it. Win98 recognizes it as a human interface adapter, but wants an .inf file to install it. Where can I find one?
