anyone find if their going al usb for everything, that lots of devices require it NOT to be connected to hubs but straight into the computer? This presents a problem if most computers only have 2 ports....
I have a usb Keyboard/mouse(trackpoint),
usb nextel cable (charge and mobile internet),
USB gps mouse
usb wireless 802.11
usb Happaguage tv/radio unit
usb dvd external player.
my system is the HP e-pc 933mhz PIII unit (tiny plus dc-input) but only upgradable by usb ports.
the 802.11 requires computer only, will not work therough hub,
also the tv/radio unit is the same, will not work.
*both say to not to use a hub.
And My hub is externally powered.
any suggestions, maybe a better hub? mine is a cheap belkin 5 port hub (5v input unit). nothing pulls over the 500 ma rating on the hub either.
