I thought only one peripheral can connect to PC with single USB interface?  A document on the internet says maximum number of 127 devices can be on the USB interface?

How is this possible?  I have seen either a printer, or keyboard, or mouse, etc. connect to a usb port on PC.  But I have never seen multiple devices connected to PC on a single USB port.

Please clarify!

USB Hub. This may be a dedicated hub put in by the user or may be integrated into a device such as a keyboard or printer etc.

That's a bit dangerous ; I wouldn't . USB devices usually get their power from USB as well , connecting many to one USB controller would be risky . use a USB hub that has an external power adapter . that's more safe.
