USB help

  charlie9999 13:54 21 Sep 2007

I've run out of usb ports on my laptop and i wanted to get a cable that divides into 2 or more USBs. I don't know what they're called so I'm having trouble finding them on the net. If someone could tell me their proper name and approx. prices that'd be great.

I would advise getting a Powered external 4xport USB hub. The laptops power might not be strong enough for extra USB items unless the hub is Powered - ie with a Mains connection.

May be advised not to run printers or scanners via a hub - these can be very temperamental if not plugged directly into the motherboard.
