    I'm looking for a new USB hub. I have slow USB1.1 devices (keyboard, printer) and some faster USB2 ones. I want them all to plug into the same hub. However, I hear that some USB2 hubs run at USB1.1 speeds when a 1.1 device is plugged in. Others are capable of running USB2 devices at their rated speed whatever is attached to the hub. However, finding this kind of information out from manufacturer's specs is proving tricky.

    So here comes a task for you helpful people. Can anyone recommend a USB2 hub that will run at full speed wih USB1 devices still attached?
