I'm using a USB to PS/2 splitter it works good, but I can't type "<" and ">" on the PS/2 keyboard. The mouse works just fine, and so does the keyboard, except I can't type these to keys, which is god damn annoying, as a programmer.

Also if I play a game, and jump while I move forward (W+SPACE), then I stop moving forward, cause it can't do to keys at the same time..

I'm using a GOOBAY USB TO PS/2 adapter, and I tried with an old IBM keyboard and with an old Acer keyboard, none of them worked proberly..

Thanks in advance!

What layout do your keyboard and your OS use? On some keyboard the < key is next to the left Shift key, on others, it's above Enter. – Dennis Feb 4 '13 at 14:39
Does it work when you just use the adapter with one keyboard (not using the splitter?) – Hennes Feb 4 '13 at 14:43
I used this keyboard with an old Desktop, there it worked just fine, now I'm on a laptop, Danish layout, so it really should work.. What you mean with one keyboard? o.o I plug the adapter in, plug the keyboard to the adapter and that's it, but the "<" ">" doesn't work, which is killing me. – user1149413 Feb 4 '13 at 14:51
