USB to PS2 PC connection possible?

Specs: Windows XP, 2333 GHz 256MB ram
I am trying to connect a USB hub to my dell PC going through the PS2 keyboard or mose port. I have a PS2 to USB converter plug and I connect the USB cable going to the hub from the PS2 port. I cannot get any of the devices in the hub to operate.

Those converters were designed to allow the use of a USB keyboard or mouse with a PS2 port. It does not provide a real USB port and will not work with most other devices.
