Hi I have a friend who has a laptop with 4 total usb ports. Two malfunction (the two on the left) and the two on the right work normal. He needs to connect three devices, which are a 3g 4g internet card, a wireless mouse, and the printer.
My only concern is if he uses a hub the 3g 4g internet speed will be slow since the other devices will be linked to the hub. So I was wondering if it will slow the connection down by using a hub?
Also most hubs have a single usb chord on them. But I have a hub that had a mini usb connector on one end (plugs into hub) and the other end of the chord has 2 usb ports (one is black and the other is red). Would this type of hub be faster since it would have two usb connections? I can post a photo if it would be helpful.
