Just bought this motherboard: http://www.geeks.com...4M80-M4&cat=MBB

When I plug in a USB device (wireless receiver) I get a message saying somthing to the affect of..... you have plugged in a high speed usb device to get the best performance you need a high speed USB controller.... or something like that.

I installed the USB 2.0 driver from the cd that came with the mother board but it is still acting like a usb 1.0. I am plugging a wireless g receiver into it that usually runs at 54 Mbs, but it is only operating at 11 Mbs with the moterboard as is.

Is this a comon problem with a easy fix??

Have you insalled he USB drivers.
Right click my computer. Select Properties, click on the Hardware tab, select Device Manager. If there are an yellow marks next to "Universal Serial Bus" then you have not installed (or have not installed correcly) the drivers.

There’s a USB controller driver at the web site, might be more updated than the one on the disk

Yes I have installed the drivers, and there are no yellow marks by them. In fact I tried to right click on them and update the drivers from the cd and it says the drivers I have are better (or more current) than the ones on the cd. :blink:

If they are better why arent they working..... :whistling:

I did try this and it also changed nothing. :blink:

Maybe if I uninstall all of my drivers then run this program?? :whistling:

I already tried uninstalling the drivers before but then I restarted the computer and it reinstalled the wrong drivers. If I can uninstall the drivers and install the drivers from the internet site before I restart, would that do it????

Well Sarahhw was the closest.

There was a yellow mark, but it was no where near the USB stuff. It was way in the top of my device manager list under other devices. I right clicked did a driver repair and whala......my enhance controller apeared with all of the other USB drivers.

Thought I would update this to provide someone else with the info in case it ever happenes to them.
