This is a very simple device. Older laptops come with a special PS/2 port on the back that will take a keyboard, a mouse, or both. This works because the pinout on the laptop PS/2 port uses what are normally non-connected pins as secondary connection points for mice when the normal pins are in use by a keyboard. This splitter cable re-routes those non-standard pins back to the standard connections on a PS/2 mouse.

I used this splitter on a Dell Inspiron 8100 laptop (circa 2001, Win XP) and it worked like a charm. The laptop was not handling USB connections for keyboard and mouse from a KVM switch properly, so a PS/2 connection was imperative. But with only one PS/2 port, I had either no mouse or no keyboard working. This splitter enabled me to connect both devices to PS/2 ports, and now they both work flawlessly.

Only try this device if the hardware you are connecting it to has some indication that the port can handle both devices simultaneously (e.g. it has purple and green, or pictures of both a keyboard and a mouse, or both indications). It will not split a standard PS/2 port, and cannot magically enable you to connect two PS/2 devices to one port.

If you have a computer that has a combined key/mouse ps/2 port, you'll need this to hook up a keyboard and mouse. I have a few servers that were designed with the combined port, but the Y-adapters were lost long ago, so this fixed me right up.

Be sure you plug the keyboard into the keyboard plug and the mouse into the mouse plug. There are little pictures to help you out.

Once I was able to type on the servers, I was able to change the bios to allow USB key and mouse.

I have a ps2 port on the back of my computer that is labeled to be both a mouse and keyboard port. I assumed this product would split this dual port for me and allow me to use the single port for both items. No such luck. Maybe it is for a different configuration than mine or perhaps the wiring/connections are bad. Since it was cheap I didn't bother trying to find out. I used it on a Gigabyte Motherboard GA970A-UD3. If you do decide to buy this I hope it works better for you, but be wary none the less.
