My PC has USB2 ports and I want to plug in a 4 port mini usb hub, I notice that you can get usb 1.1 or 2.0 hubs. My question is, if I fit a usb 1.1 which I have will i get usb 2.0 transfer rates. In other words are these hubs just like a straight through multi adaptor, if not can someone explain. THX

No the device will operate at the maximum speed specified by its own specs, connect a USB1.1 hub to a USB2 port, you will get USB1.1 speeds.

Thx for your quick response brundle, I thought that was the case but when i contacted the seller they said it didn't make any difference as it was a straight through adaptor. The spec info on the package doesn't mention 1.1 or 2.0 so i now assume that if it doesn't say 2.0 it must be 1.1 (some other sellers are listing it as 1.1)
They have offered me a refund if I'm not satisfied,their advert did say usb 2.0.
