Usb 2.0 hub - how to test it is working at the correct speed

I have a usb 2.0 pci card and have just purchased a peak powered 4 port usb 2.0 high speed hub. i keep getting a message saying my device will work faster if i switch to 2.0.

the pc engineer who sold me the hub has told me it is working properly. how can i check this?

he also said that i might be getting this message erroneously if i don't connect everything in the right order. but apart from telling me to check that it is plugged in he didn't give any details of how to connect properly - just that i need to do it all in the right order.

can you help please? i don't want to pay for something that isn't doing the job. thank you.

Get a USB Storage device - if you can copy a file of about 100mb in under 10-20 seconds, then chances are it's USB2. USB2.0 is 480mbps where as 1.1 is 12mpbs (or something tiny in comparison)......

This error doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with the device. If a device says it is USB 2.0, it usually is. This means that the USB port you plugged it into or your computer altogether doesn't support USB 2.0.

Although I dont understand your statement " will not read a card reader" since you state a problem with the Syba Infozone cable.
Is the problen your USB 3 port or the Syba cable.

How to enable highspeed usb on neclcd1770nx monitor


On most monitors that have usb ports you have to run a usb cable from the computer to the monitor to get the usb ports to work.

If your computer is not equipped with high speed usb ports you can purchase a pci usb adapter card that can make it usb 2.0 which is considered high speed.

Try purchasing one from Tiger Direct at:

Below is a link to one that I use which costs $9.99

I have 4 usb ports 1.0 I am not able to download


The port in the PC needs to be USB 2.0 standard.

A quick analogy. Think of a tap with 1/2" outlet, and you connect an adapter and a 1" hose to it. It will work, but you will not get more water just because you attached a thicker hose; the original outlet has to have higher diameter to give you more water.

If all your USB ports are 1.0 version, the only option is to purchase an USB 2.0 PCI card mounted inside the computer - this will give you 2 or 4 (depending on card model) USB 2.0 outlets.

Please come back with a rating/testimonial if helped.

The connection on the rear of the hub should go to a USB connection on the laptop, not a PS/2 connection. A PS/2 to USB adapter is used to connect a PS/2 keyboard or mouse to a USB connection.

How to install a sd card reader on a Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop? no 4 pin usb on motherboard?


I managed to install a card reader on my Dell Dimension 8200.

The main problem is that the Dell motherboard does not have the correct USB pin. This is a 9-pin MoBo USB header.

The quick answer is I installed a USB card with an internal port.

Secondly I reverse mounted a powered 4-port USB hub in the spare 3.5" bay.

You cannot buy a USB card with 2 internals and do away with the 4 port powered USB hub because the card reader does need to be connected to a powered USB port.

Pci card doesint work


What you want is a USB hub.  That will allow you to connect more than two USB devices to your computer.  There are two types, USB 2.0 and USB 1.1.  USB 1.1 will work for most slow speed devices, USB 2.0 is better for cameras and hard disks that have the support.  You should confirm which version of USB your computer has, but you should be OK getting a USB 4-port hub, plugging that into your computer, then plugging your keyboard and mouse into the hub and using the other port for the new peripheral that you wish to install.  Old PCI cards are problematic because you need the correct drivers.  You also need to make sure you plug them into the proper PCI port.  It sounds like the device you got from e-bay might be bad, so you shouldn't continue to use it.  If you post the make / model of your computer we might be able to suggest a new PCI card that will work if you still want to add more ports to your computer.

Installing USB Hub


After installing the USB controller card into a PCI slot inside your computer, connect the 4 port hub to it with the supplied cable. (at the back of the computer)
Do not connect the DVD Recorder to the old usb ports. They will still work, but obviously not 2.0.

Connecting the power supply for the hub is optional, but usually a good idea.

If your computer still doesn't recognize the hub, make sure you have all of the latest windows updates and try running Add New Hardware in control panel. Also, just unplugging the hub and plugging it back in will sometimes work. Use a different port on the controller card if necessary.

As a last resort, you may need to disable the onboard usb controller through your system bios.

Good Luck
