Hello
I wish to install a wireless optical mouse and I have presumed best practice would suggest I use a USB port.
I do not have a vacant USB port.
Is there a solution?
Many thanks

You can get an adaptor to enable you to plug the USB mouse into a conventional mouse port. In fact, all the USB mice that I have bought have come with one.

This will allow you to use the ps2 port.

Seeing Vog on this page, who I much admire and respect makes me think that this may be incorrect. However, surely you could use a USB hub. They're not very expensive, actually I bought a small one on Ebay new for the ridiculously low price of £1.99. This was send from the Far East, but it seemed to arrive as if it had come from Norwich.
