I have a Belkin 5 port USB 2.0 card in my PC, and I tried plugging in a Linksys 4 port hub into it. When I do, I get an unknown device error. If I plug it into one of my onboard USB ports, I get the same error. If I take out the PCI card, and plug it into the onboard port, it works just fine, but I am losing the USB 2.0 speed since the onboard port is 1.1. I am running under XP Pro w/sp1.
Any ideas?

Leave the card in and disable the onboard USB ports in the BIOS.

Well...that sounded like a great idea and I tried it, but that didnt work either. I tried disabling just ports 2&3and just 0&1, too.
Help!

Are you sure that hub is USB 2.0? Try another PCI slot on the motherboard

The fact that the on-board USB 1.1 ports are enabled shouldn't be an issue. I have a bunch of machines with USB 2.0 boards that have USB 1.1 ports, I've never bothered to disable any of them.

It works on any workstation that the PCI card is not in. The common factor is the hub thing. The PCI card installs a USB hub, and so does the Hub.

I am kind of wondering if I installed a card with less ports if that would do the trick? Suggestions?
