Multiple Hub

  1. I am trying to hookup other devices to my laptop like printer, camera, external hard drive, external disk player but my OS is out of USB slots. Is there a multiple USB hub in which I can use to install all devices without effecting the performance of my desktop

    A hub will do this nicely and needs no configuration.

    Plug on slot of the USB into a switch and then all the other devices into it. Just get a POWERED USB HUB and all should be find.

    BTW: NEVER attach a keyboard or mouse via a USB HUB. These devices need to be seen a boot time and the proper drivers are not yet available.
