Can true USB 2.0 of Hub be harnessed being connected to USB 1.1 Onboard Port?
Posted on 2006-05-14
I have a friend who has ordered a digital camera which does still frames and streaming audio/video data. The setup requires USB 2.0. Now, as I understand the situation at this time, he has a USB 2.0 Hub which is connected to an older onboard USB 1.1 onboard port. With this in mind, will the digital camera setup run fine from the USB 2.0 Hub?
Even though the USB Hub is 2.0, I still assume it will default to the slower USB 1.1 speed. Therefore, I believe the logical workaround for this problem will be a PCI to USB 2.0 Converter Card. However, I am unsure on this one.
Any shared insights and ideas will be appreciated. I look forward to hearing from everyone.
