Default USB to PS/2 keyboard adapter

I have a USB keyboard I want to plug in to a PS/2 port (on a KVM switch). I tried using a USB to PS/2 mouse adapter, but the keyboard doesn't work with that.

My (kinda stupid) question: Do I need to get an adapter specifically for keyboards? I've seen this same adapater, the one for a mouse, described online as a mouse/keyboard adapter. Here , for instance.

Many thanks! (And no thanks at all to TigerDirect for it's misleading description that this adapter can be used to "connect your mouse or keyboards.")
