USB bandwidth problem

  1. Hi,
    a friend of mine has a problem with usb bandwidth, he has a bulldog connection that's usb, keyboard, mouse, external hard drive, game pad, and web cam that are also all usb.

    That's a total of 6 devices yet his mobo has 10 usb sockets on board. We have established that his internet connection is using a vast majority of the bandwidth.

    My question is, does anyone know of a way to fix this problem? The internet connection has usb only and no other means of connection.

    Would a usb hub alleviate or exacerbate the problem?

    Many thanx for any help. Rik.

    The above was taken from HERE.

    Sounds plausible.

    Regards Howard :)
