The problem, as the OP mentions, is compatibility issues: many of those may work fine for PS/2 mice, but they fail totally and utterly for old PS/2 mechanical keyboards because they're passive adapters without the electronics needed to make older PS/2 keyboards work. The two adapters that are known to work reliably are the Ziotek "blue cube" (usually combined with a short USB cable like this for convenience) and the Belkin F5U119-E (note the -E suffix; other F5U119 variants don't work). There's an entire wiki out there devoted to this particular wrinkle (I have it bookmarked on my home machine but don't have it handy ATM, but I think I got the link originally from an earlier discussion here on the forums so somebody can probably post it if I don't get a chance to search here for it.)riviera74 wrote:Try these.
