A usb hub was also tested for connecting multiple usb devices A USB Hub was also used to test bandwidth capabilities. This particular usb hub is a 4 port usb hub that can be self powered or optional ac adapter can be used. In this case, self power was used as seen in images to the left and below. Because the hub is usb 1.1 compatible, it could be used in the testing.
usb hub and usb mouse both tested with the usb line extender To test out the usb hub both the mouse seen here and a digital camera were used. Why the camera and the mouse? The mouse alone takes up little band width and is used in everyday operation, the digital camera uses more bandwidth in operations such as image transfer to the computer. The results were excellent and there were no errors while transfer was occurring.
As stated the results were excellent. To see the results of this part of the test, please refer to the flash movie that was recorded while testing, the movie will redirect you back to this page when finished.
