View Full Version : Model M working PS/2 to USB adapter

Hey all!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I got lucky with a dual PS/2 to USB adapter (made in China like everything else these days). Since I don't own a USB keyboard and my laptop doesn't have any PS/2 ports, it was supposed to let me use the model M as a normal USB keyboard. Guess what? It works! So far I tested the adapter with a Toshiba Portege M100 laptop and a modern Core 2 Duo desktop. It worked flawlessly with both. Will test it with a few other machines I have at home.

The adapter is a no-name product but finding one on eBay turned out to be easy. I bought mine locally but it's exactly the same as the one in this auction: http://tinyurl.com/76c3y5
