I was wondering if there was a way to make a PS\2 to ADB connector. I have this piece of **** wireless keyboard and mouse combo. I hate it so much. It's the only ADB keyboard I have, the keyboard also doesn't work that great. I wanted to know if anyone had a schematic for PS\2 connector to ADB. If you got info, please tell me. I'm not sure if this post is supposed to go under this section. Thank you.

There's enough people here with stacks of ADB keyboards and mice that you could get a set for cost of shipping.

Geethree sells a converter, but it's a lot more than you'd pay for the above.

A schematic will involve a programmable controller to interpret the ps/2 signals and convert them to something the ADB bus will recognize a la this converter for using PS/2 on an Atari ST. So, beyond soldering wires together, you will need to write the hex file(s) to tell the programmer what to do with these signals.
