    If they didn't give you the manual for the board...shame on them...ask them for it...it will have the specs in it.

    If you don't a manual, GOOGLE the make/mdl of your MOBO, and check out the Specs online.

    Open Device Manager and look at the USB Controllers section. It should list them as "Enhanced" ports. It's real unlikely that if the MB has USB 2.0 ports that it would also have USB 1.1 ports, I've never seen that configuration.
