Default Wireless USB mouse work as PS/2?

I've got a Logitech G7 and I just bought a KVM. I found it does not have usb, so could I simply get a USB to PS/2 dongle and it work?

Don't know if it will fully work like that, but it will probably work like a normal mouse without the extra buttons working. I could be wrong, but mice that are made for either usually come with a USB to PS/2 adapter. Do you not have a USB port or what? Get a USB hub if you don't have any open ones, and you shouldn't have that mouse if your PC doesn't have a USB port... If you got open USB ports, why do you want to use PS/2 when USB is better?

EDIT: just re read and found out what a KVM was... Maybe you should get a KVM with a USB port...

yeah PS2 and USB use the same protocol thats why it is possible to interchange them.

Well I had thought about that, but I like the one I already bought and if PS/2 works fully then I will still be happy.

Nah, it will work with USB to PS2. It's always been better to get converters.
