USB to PS2 adapters for keyboards question. Tags: Playstation USB Keyboards Components Last response: August 13, 2009 2:19 PM in Components Share jenebrad August 13, 2009 3:44:14 AM Hi, I'd like to use this "wake when pressing any button on the keyboard" option (that's on the Asus Rampage Gene II motherboard). But it says it only works for PS2 keyboards, and I have a USB keyboard.... I do have a few extra of those little green USB to PS2 mouse adapters. Is there a recommended adapter for the USB to PS2 for keyboard? and would performance be hindered on a gaming system? Thanks More about : usb ps2 adapters keyboards question masterjaw August 13, 2009 4:18:24 AM There's no such thing as a recommended usb to ps2 adapter. Plug in what you have there and do your thing. m 0 l evongugg August 13, 2009 2:19:49 PM Just remember that PS/2 ports are not hot swappable. Swapping them while the computer is running could cause keyboard errors or motherboard damage at it's worst. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
