Question about VIA Vectro VT6212 (A62124) Serial Adapter

1 Answer

The system comments that this is not a usb 2 device

Dear hearts
Just plugged in the VIA Vectro VT6212L 4 Port USB 2 PCI Host Controller to my old Duron Athlon motherboard and when i connect usb 2 devices the balloon pops up and says it would be better to connect this device via a faster usb2 interface ... well i reckon it shouldnt be saying that if this PCI interface is working properly unless it is working at optimum speed and i can ignore the comments.Is there any way i can check the speed transfer rates ?

    Hi electech



    your advice is spot on. Thanks.

    also when I pulled the 4 way USB hub I had being using for convenience
    and plugged a USB 2 device directly into the card port I didnt receive
    any comments about reduced speed this time.

    So I reckon it's sorted.



    many thanks again

First thing is that message just means that your device will work at a reduced speed
second is that a high speed port or enhanced usb port is required to work it at enhanced speeds
to check if your usb port is enhanced goto : control panel / system properties / hardware tab / device mannager / then scroll down to usb controllers and see if it says enhanced next to your usb port if it does then you will need to get the updated usb driver for the enhanced speed

    well then if your 4 hub does not support high speed then it won't work but if it does then you will need then drivers for it work at the high speed rate

Lost install instructions for Hi-speed usb 2.0 5-port PCI card.


The drivers are here. You shouldn't need to do anything to install the card other than plug it into a PCI slot in your computer and install the drivers.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

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.

If you've updated your software and checked the drivers but the issue still persists, try the following things:
  • Unplug the USB device and then plug it back in. Make sure that the connection is snug and installed in the proper direction. Note that USB plugs fit one way only—if you try to plug them in upside-down, it will not insert.
If this does not solve your issue-
  • Unplug all USB devices from the computer. Then start plugging in USB devices one at a time, testing each one to make sure they all work before adding the next. Sometimes two devices will conflict and will work together.
If this does not solve your issue-
  • Is this a new device that never worked, or is it a device that you've had for a while that suddenly stopped working? If it used to work, think about what changed just before the device stopped working. Did you recently add another new device? Install a new program? Try reverting the computer to the way it was before the device stopped working. If it works again, there is an incompatibility with the device and whatever you added.
If this does not solve your issue-
  • Unplug all but suspected USB devices. Open System Devices menu-
    • Windows: Right click “My Computer” > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > USB Serial Bus Controllers
    Under the USB information, you should see the USB devices connected to your system. (Disregard any Host controllers) The name may not be identical to your device (it may say “USB Mass storage device”), but it should have the right number of devices listed.
If this does not solve your issue-
  • If you have the device plugged into a USB hub or into your keyboard, plug it directly into one of the USB ports on the computer. If it works there, the issue is with the device to which it had been previously connected. The device may need more power than the port provides
  • Try a different computer!

Did i just get ripped off?


Did you install the latest drivers for this device? Download and install the latest dell drivers and firware for the cardbus controller. Make sure you are using dell drivers, not microsoft from windows update.
