[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Guide - Page 119

post #1181 of 14551
The DAS keyboard came with a Y adapter to hook it up to 2 usb ports and I did so right away and it still didn't seem to work... I already took it back.

I prefer the tenkeyless Filco foot print. Takes up less space and I can have my Kinesis 10 key on the left side of the keyboard this way.

I will just wait for Elite to get some more in stock and use my b-stock one for now.

The b-stock one works good, I just liked the feeling of that DAS a lot better. And if you say that the DAS is blue cherries, I'm just going to be patient and wait for the Filco to become available at Elite Keyboards.

If you figure out which one does the hub, you should be able to connect the das to the ps/2 port and the hub's usb connector to the USB.

I would advise against plugging the das keyboard into any USB hub, powered or not. They just don't seem to like hubs, they need to plug straight into the motherboard.

Actually, I do not. I just assumed they could be used with PCs/Windows as well, neglecting the fact that they do not have Windows/Start keys. I heard some had pink alps switches, which seem to be recommended.

It's to late to try anything to it... I already returned it.

The Y adapter is an add on... the keyboard its self has only one USB plug.
It seems like the DAS is wired to the USB hub first when it was installing the drivers the hub came up first then the keyboard.... I think that is the whole problem with the keyboard... If they wouldn't have added the hub to it, I'm sure it would have worked just fine. But they have to add extra crap to the keyboard that a person doesn't really need.


I will just wait for the Filco keyboard... I would rather use a PS2 adapter and plug it in to the ps2 port. It frees up a USB port that way and I can access the bios with out having to plug in another keyboard with a PS2.

The problem with daskeyboard is they tried to make nkey rollover work via USB. The thing they tried was to get the keyboard to register as two keyboards, theoretically giving 12 instead of 6 key presses. This ended up just causing tons of issues like you experienced. They gave up on it with the new model of their keyboards, which are due out soon.
