USB2 Drivers for NEC Hub on Win XP Pro

Hi,

I have scoured the net for an XP driver for my 4 port USB2 PCI card.  It has an NEC chipset.  Whatever I try I cannot get it to run at high speed.  XP always tells me that I have a High Speed Device plugged into a non hi speed hub.  I know it works because before I upgraded from WIN2K it worked fine, just not with XP.

Any Suggestions?????

Firstly you will need Service Pack 1 for XP to enable USB 2.0 support

Then try here: http://list.driverguide.com/matches.php?ids[0]=112648&ids[1]=121609&ids[2]=119039&from_ums=1

It might ask you for a login

try http://www.cornerproducts.com/drivers/necusb2.0.zip as well though I don't think you need a driver for the NEC chipset on XP SP1

Sounds like all I need is SP1, in which case the points will go to StealthMullet.  Let me download it tonight and see if it works.

Thanks.

penz,
Be sure to remove the card from device manager before installing XP SP1.  if you're not sure which USB controller is your USB2 entry, just plug in a device to it, then set Device Manager (start/run/devmgmt.msc) to View-> Devices by connection
