    I belive if your computer is 1x -- it will only read at 1x even if
    your hub is a 2x

    If you plug a USB 2.0 hub into a USB 1.0 port the 2.0 Hub will run at 1.0x speed. You should look into this. . .
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16815265001
    It is a PCI card that has 2 USb 2.0 ports and 2 Firewire ports, it also has 1 internal USB 2.0 port but I don't really see the point in it. It costs $12.99 with $4.99 for shipping and will make any PC USB 2.0 enabled.

    Just read this review of the product. . .

    It means you will be running at i.0 or 1.1--what ever your computer is.

    Backward Compatibiliy means that if you have your USB 2.0 hub plugged into a USB 2.0 port on your PC, that even though all the ports are designed for USB 2.0 devices it will work with devices that use USB 1.0 .
