Before You Begin
To use your Adaptec XHub2®, you need:
■ A PC-compatible notebook or desktop computer with:
■
A 266-MHz or faster processor
■
Windows® XP or Windows 2000
An available USB port
One high-quality USB cable for each USB device you

About USB 2.0 Performance
For your XHub2 and USB 2.0 devices to operate at USB 2.0
speeds, the XHub2 must be connected to a USB 2.0 port,
and USB 2.0 drivers with hub support must be installed on
your computer.
If your computer does not have a built-in USB 2.0 port,
Adaptec recommends connecting your XHub2 to an
Adaptec USB 2.0 adapter for the highest-quality USB 2.0
connection.
Note: USB 1.1 devices won’t operate at USB 2.0 speeds,
even if they’re connected to a USB 2.0 hub or adapter.

Plugging in Your XHub2

to power off your computer before connecting the hub.

You do not need to install any device drivers. When your
XHub2 is connected and your computer is powered on,
your hub is ready for use.
Unplugging Your XHub2
Your XHub2 is hot-pluggable, which means it can be
connected and disconnected while your computer is on.
(Your USB devices may not be hot-pluggable, however; see
Unplugging Your Devices on page 3 for more information.)

Plugging in Your Devices
Follow this picture to connect your USB 1.1 and 2.0 devices
to your XHub2. You can use either USB port on your hub.
Note: USB 1.1 devices won’t operate at USB 2.0
speeds, even if they’re connected to a USB 2.0 hub or
adapter. See About USB 2.0 Performance on page 1 for
more information.
Unplugging Your Devices
Device manufacturers support hot-plugging in different
ways. Some devices (like CD-ROM drives) must be
stopped before they are unplugged. Refer to your devices’
documentation for disconnection recommendations.
