Which connector do I need?

It is usually necessary to re-boot your computer after connecting a PS2 device.

PS2 is the standard port for keyboard/mouse on modern PCs (but make sure you don't plug your mouse into the keyboard port - they are sometimes different).

Many new devices are now being made with USB connections.
