USB ports

Terry D

Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-7VKMP with Athlon XP 2000+ & 480MB RAM, running
Windows 98SE. I have 4 USP ports (2 on front, 2 on rear). Under USB serial
bus controllers in System Properties, I have:

1. Hub support for USB 2.0
2. USB 2.0 root hub
3. USB root hub (3 entries)
4. VIA PCI to USB enhanced host controller
5. VIA Tech 3038 PCI to USB universal host controller.

How can I determine which of my ports are USB 2. I have a four port USB hub
connected to one of the rear sockets from which I run an Epson inkjet
printer. The printer seems very slow. I want to determine whether I am
operating on USB 1 or 2.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Terry D.

If you have a USB2 pendrive, plug it in, if no message about device
would operate faster on a USB2 port, you ARE on USB2.

Try UVCView and see what it shows.

That motherboard is supposed to have up to 6 USB 2.0 ports:
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=1408

It's not unusual for a system builder to not hookup all of the ports
that the mainboard offers, as it can depend (somewhat) on the case it's
put into.

What would be unusual is if the system came with USB 2.0 ports, and the
decision was made to somehow add some USB 1.1 ports to the mix. It
might just be that the System Property names are a bit misleading.
Also, making sure that you have the latest drivers would be a good idea.

Here's the manual:
http://america.giga-byte.com/FileList/Manual/motherboard_manual_7vkmp_e.pdf

It shows that two parts are exposed through the back plane of the
mainboard. Four other ports, in two groups of two, are available
through pin headers on the mainboard, near the battery. If your case
just has two exposed front panel ports, that would explain why only four
ports are accessible.

I'm tired and I won't be proofreading that barf that I've written above,
but suffice it to say that you probably already have USB 2.0 ports all
the way round.
