Hi all, a neighbour of mine has got a Web Cam for Christmas, he called me over to help him install it !.
The dammed thing doesnt work, he doesnt have enough Bandwidth on his USB ports. A little window comes up saying his USB ADSL Modem is taking up 79%, the Web cam needs 13% and it seems there is a 10% and 15% reserved for something else (79% + 10% + 15% adds up to more than 100% !!).
I have unplugged his Printer and Scanner from the 4 ports built into his motherboard, so only the |Modem and Camera are the only things plugged in but it still isnt enough.
So i am wondering, will it help IF i fit him a PCI 4 port USB hub ?,
and/or is there a way of reducing the bandwidth that is being used by the Modem !! ????
BTW, happy christmas, i hope you are all having as much beer as i am !!. LOL.
