Is the supported USB protocol the HID (human interface device used by most wireless combo keyboards+mice)?

If reactos does not have a native support for some USB device, can the manufacturers windows driver help, or can those not yet be installed/loaded in Reactos?

it is not the HID problem in reactos
HID is use top on usb stack

the real problem is our usb stack, and only one usb protocoll are supported. and mainboard can only have one of them. it is the xbox usb
protocoll we got.

sorry to stir up topics, but i have 2 keyboards on my current computer which runs windows xp due to the fact that ine is a cordless usb keyboard and the other is ps2 there for i can run 2 which comes in handy when runing dos games in dosbox. So my question is does that mean i can run 2 keyboards in react?

In the future.

well, that is a thing you have to try for your self, the USB drivers is a bit picky still. In the future however you will hopefully be able to use both keyboards simultaneously in two different log-ins and split the screen in two or use two screens.
