I have a Dell C-600 that only has one PS/2 Connection on the back (for a keyboard). I use one of those switch boxes that allow me to switch form one computer to another with only using one monitor, keyboard and mouse. I’d like to add my laptop to the mix. I have a Serial to PS/2 connector that I thought would work, but it does not. Here is a link to what I have, http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=225972&CatId=469
Do I need a special mouse for this connector? Or do I need some kind of special configuration on the laptop (WinXP Pro)? Any suggestions?
O, I'm using a standard Microsoft mouse.
