I just ordered a 1TB MBWE I. I plan on using it as a print server but I'm wondering if I can add a USB2.0 Hub and also hook my external HD to it. I.E. Will it support a USB hub with two devices (for now) connect to it?
I have a 500 GB MBWE with a cheap ebay USB hub plugged in the back. I have a 2 USB drives plugged into the hub ( a 500 GB WDand a 120 GB WD) and both are working fine.
Just don't expect these external USB drives to run at USB 2 speeds!
will they run at usb 2 speeds if its a usb 2 hub?
the MBWE chip supprts up to 3 usb devices: one usb 2.0 and two usb 1.1.
