USB Problem...

by efong / July 16, 2007 9:00 PM PDT

I'm using ASUS A9RP series just bought months ago and I'm using Windows XP SP2. Everytime when i switch on my computer, a message will pop up and shows HI-SPEED USB Device Attached To non-HI-SPEED Hub. The message box also shows recommendation for this problem. It shows "Disconnect the ASUS USB Wireless Network Adapter from its current port and then connect it to the one of the ports on a hub shown in bold type (USB Root Hub)." How can i disconnect the adapter from it's current port?

All that message means

Is that you unplug the ASUS device from where it is plugged in and move it to a high speed USB port (2.0). If you have a HUB installed, it is not USB 2.0. If you are plugged into a motherboard port then your motherboard port is not operating at the 2.0 speed.

has only one USB port, and that is 2.0 (with backward compatability for 1.1 devives). As your wireless is built in, I am sure you do not have a wireless adapter plugged into this port. Just what is plugged in?

The only thing that makes sense is that, as efong suggested, you have an USB 1.1 hub plugged into the notebook's port, then a high speed USB device plugged into the hub. But why this is misidentified as your internal wireless card is strange.

Look at the lable on the hub; if it just says USB, it is USB 1, and the likely source of your problem. Replace it with n USB 2.0 hub. You might also try booting with nothing plugged into the port to see if the message goes away.

Hope this may be of some help\\FRANK
