I have a new DELL PC that has USB ports only; it has no PS/2 ports. My keyboard has a PS/2 connection. Any idea where I can get something to convert my USB device to PS/2? I find many devices to connect PS/2 to USB but not what I need. Thanks!

There is a simple connector that has a single usb on one end and 2 PS/2 connectors on the other end. This connector can be used to connect a keyboard and a mouse to a single USB port.
