    Default USB worries, USB 1.1 or 2.0?

    I have been moving stuff around and I have noticed that when I
    >lsusb I get result:

    stephen@home:~> lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB-2.0 4-Port HUB
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0ace:1215 ZyDAS WLA-54L 802.11bg (zd1211rw)
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 062a:0000 Creative Labs Optical mouse

    Does this mean that my mouse and anything else connected to the front USB sockets will only run at USB 1.1 speed?
    If any help, here is >dmesg | grep usb:

    I realise that this is not serious for a mouse, but I have a USB HDD enclosure I would like to use.....
    Could I test the HDD safely using dd type commands?

    This from my mainboard manual:

    The Module Version and USB Devices Enabled items show the
    auto-detected values. If no USB device is detected, the item shows
    None.
    USB 1.1 Controller [Enabled]
    Allows you to enable or disable the USB 1.1 Controller.
    Configuration options: [Enabled] [Disabled]
    USB 2.0 Controller [Enabled]
    Allows you to enable or disable the USB 2.0 Controller.
    Configuration options: [Enabled] [Disabled]
    Legacy USB Support [Enabled]
    Allows you to enable or disable support for USB devices on legacy
    operating systems (OS). Setting to Auto allows the system to detect the
    presence of USB devices at startup. If detected, the USB controller legacy
    mode is enabled. If no USB device is detected, the legacy USB support is
    disabled.
    Configuration options: [Disabled] [Enabled] [Auto]
    USB 2.0 Controller Mode [HiSpeed]
    Allows you to configure the USB 2.0 controller in HiSpeed (480 Mbps) or
    Full Speed (12 Mbps). Configuration options: [HiSpeed] [Full Speed]
    If I DISable the 1.1 controller, this disable the 2.0 as well (No USB post boot), I have the USB 2.0 option set to HiSpeed (480Mb/s)
    Could the builder have somehow connected the front panel wrongly?

    Hmm the documentation says that all should be 2.0 capable:






    My front panel is currently attached to the pins USB78 Bottom right, and has always been AFAIR

    Thank you for this tip. You have solved literally days of work for me. I was trying to connect a new Wireless headset with a USB dongle, and could only get static.

    Moving the dongle to another port solved it. Apparently the machine has one port that is XXX and the other two are YYY. But YYY works, XXX doesn't... As with you, I don't know whether XXX=1.1 and YYY=2.0 or vice versa, but in any case, YYY works. The HP documentation doesn't say which is which.

    My blog on this subject is here:

    Thank you again.

    Cheers, Andy
