Can someone explain to me what is the purpose of this adapter?
I found it in my pile o’ random parts at work. There are no markings on it – no brand, no serial number, no nothing. It only has the USB symbol on both sides. I have bunch of the USB to PS2 adapters which are about the same size and shape. I have also seen the much less common, but much coveted by some users PS2 to USB adapters.
But what is the point of USB to USB? I just can’t figure this out…
As per Craig’s suggestion I ran lsusb on it – I got nothing. It did not detect any devices plugged into the USB port. Windows did not detect it as a device either. So it does not seem like it really does anything other than just being adapter.
