Hi there! Sorry for bumping this thread. I was looking at buying one of these off serdashop but had a question:

Does this adapter do *anything* to up the polling rate of the mouse in DOS? I hate using serial mice, and how imprecise and jerky they feel from the low polling rate. In Windows you can use a program called PS2rate with any PS2 mouse to up the rate and it makes mouse movement feel much more smoother in game.

Is this possible at all in DOS? Does this adapter help with that? (Would anyone be interested in looking at drivers?). Its the one thing that drives me insane trying to play FPS games in DOS.

Yes, you can use 19200 Baud and get improved mouse movement on serial.
