USB 2.0 what?

Okay i recently bought a USB 2.0 4 port hub

thats the exact one, reason is i bought an Ipod Video 80GB, and it says its USB 2.0 capable , but i dont have USB 2.0, so thats why i bought the usb 2.0 4 port hub, okay it still updates with the same speed all pluged in, even weirder when i plug it in, it says you need USB 2.0 port to operate this device, i think the problem is that this is just an extention of USB 2.0, can anyone help i am confused, Did i buy USB 2.0 or do i need to have USB 2.0 port in order to use this product

So who can help me, did i missunderstand something, seriouly this would be so much easyier if it place in the system requirments that i need USB 2.0, or do i? may the software is out of date how can i update it

USB 2.0

Your motherboard is USB 1.1. Therefore your USB 2.0 hub cannot run at high-speed. To use that hub you would have to install a USB 2.0 PCI card. That would add the USB 2.0 ports to the back of your PC and enable speeds of 480 Mbps.

If you have a desktop can add a USB 2.0 PCI

card which will give you USB 2.0 connectivity ...easier and much cheaper than a new PC.
