Question about CyberPower CPH420P 4-Port USB Hub
When connecting to usb port the hub either detects as faulty a "generic usb hub" or as unknown device.
Just reinstalled OS today and trouble still occurring.
intel 82801db/dbm usb 2.0 enhanced host controller - 24cd is installed and works with other devices. I have tried 2 different hubs exactly the same and have the same issue.
i cannot seem to find any updated drivers for this device or the controler.
any suggestions will be appreciated.

finsphan72's response is correct but you could use information one step earlier.
USB 1.1 is the older version of USB. USB 2.0 is newer and much faster. Your computer has hardware in it to talk to USB. Because it is an older computer, it has USB 1.1 hardware.
The USB hub is just a splitter. It lets you plug in several USB devices while only using one USB port in your computer. But it doesn't change the fundamental capabilities of your computer.
The only way to get a computer with USB 1.1 built-in to support USB 2.0 is to add a USB 2.0 card to the computer. This is an open up the computer and install a piece of hardware operation. It isn't very hard and it isn't very expensive, but it might not be something you are comfortable doing (and it is possible to mess things up - you probably wouldn't, but you could). Maybe this is an "ask a high school age friend for a favor" sort of situation.
