I bought a NEC Chipset 5 Port USB 2.0 Card, from click here and have had no problems, you must install the drivers from the supplied CD

he's already got usb 2.0, and asking about buying a usb 1.1 webcam.

Or did you mean to post in the other thread about upgrading from usb 1.1 to 2.0?

Specification USB 1.1 allowed a maximum transfer rate of 12Mbits/second.
whereas USB 2.0 maximum transfer rate is at 40MBps or 320Mbps.
so your tranfer speed will be at the slow rate
