    USB hubs

    I have 2-7 port USB 2.0 hubs on their own power. However, when I plug in a device I constantly get the message that this device can perform better in USB 2.0 hub, blah,blah,BS
    I have 2 extensions running from th trunk, one for each hub. Each hub also has a step down controller dropping 12v to 5v. The 12v is a separate circuit on a fuse block and is ignition controlled.
    Any thoughts from those more experienced?
    Thanks.

    Did you check your bios? usually you have the option of enabling 1.0, 1.1, 1.1+2.0, 2.0 only, etc. Check if 1.1+2.0 is selected.

    I've heard that if you plug old, "unfriendly" USB 1.0/1.1 devices into a hub, that then all 2.0 devices in that hub will automatically sync with the slower device. Some hubs avoid that, some don't. I would plug both hubs first, the problem device you get the warning from, and go from there.
