That is not a problem, I like to see people get stuff fixed up.
Your wire tracing sounds good to me...
I'd say that you PS/2 connection is wrong.
This is the Cable end of your Extension.
You have to find out which wires go to which pins.
How it should be connected:
1 Data = Lt Blue from your Keyboard cable
3 Ground = Blue from your Keyboard cable
4 +5 = Lt Red from your Keyboard cable
5 CLK = White from your Keyboard cable
You will have to find out which colour on your extension cable matches up to the corresponding pin.
Also note that PS/2 cannot be plugged in live as it will not reset or be recognized properly.
You have to power off for PS/2 connect / disconnect (A reset will not do it.)
If everything powers up but the keyboard does not function, it is also possible that Pin #1 & Pin #5 on the PS/2 connector are reversed.
(The data sheet does not specifically list which pin is Data or CLK on the Cypress Chip.)
If your going to hook a PS/2 connector on the cable and then put the PS/2 to USB adapter on it.
Why not just hook the Keyboard cable up to USB and see what happens.
Dollar store USB cable and hack the end off, if you don't have a spare cable to use. :)
