Troubleshooting
Hubs
The following figure shows the recommended configuration for
connecting USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 devices. Note that you could
connect USB 2.0 devices to a USB 1.1 hub, but the USB 2.0 devices
would run at slower USB 1.1 speeds.
Troubleshooting
If you encounter difficulties installing or using your USB2connect
adapter, check the following:
■
Is the card seated evenly in the PCI slot?
■
Did the driver fail to load? If so, try moving the card to a
different PCI slot.
■
Is bus mastering support provided and enabled for the PCI slot
containing USB2connect? Check your motherboard
documentation for information.
■
Did you encounter problems with a USB device when it is
connected to a hub? If so, connect the affected device directly to
the USB2connect adapter.
■
AUA-5100 only—Did you attach a device to a disabled
connector? See Installing Jumpers – AUA-5100 only on page 3 for
details on enabling and disabling connectors.
■
Did you encounter problems loading the drivers on your
Windows 2000 operating system? If so, refer to the Readme file
on the USB2connect CD. Also, check the Windows 2000 event
log and the troubleshooting section of your operating system
user’s guide.
