Windows device driver information for HUB Support for USB 2.0

In computing terminology when talking about USB hub devices, it actually references a hardware component which is used to support the connection of multiple devices that make use of the Universal Serial Bus interface port connection. Basically on older computer systems the Universal Serial Bus interface port was limited to anywhere from two to four access ports. At the time these were enough to host the limited number of USB-based computer hardware components. With the increasing number of devices that are hosted on the Universal Serial Bus communication port the need for the USB hub came in demand for the computer systems with limited access ports. Generally there is a difference between the built-in Universal Serial Bus communication ports and those hosted on a USB hub. The built-in ports are basically two Universal Serial Bus hubs that are split into four ports. In this context the ports are not equipped with an independent USB hardware.

USB hubs which are physically independent from the host computer system are designed in such a way that it has a single upstream port with the Universal Serial Bus interface ports serving as the downstream channels. The device driver is particularly responsible for the flow of data among these independently supported communication interfaces. It also provides the supported hardware component with the functionality of consolidating multiple Universal Serial Bus based hardware components into one physical device that allows for quick attachment and removal from the host computer system. The device driver takes advantage of the high speed data transmission capabilities of the communication port. The importance of the HUB Support for USB 2.0 device driver is highlighted in older operating system environments which do not have inherent support for the technology. Essentially the device driver is partially responsible for delivering the backward compatibility function of the hardware component. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and HUB Support for USB 2.0 errors before installing any driver updates.
