We'll need a bit more info to figger this out.

Please let us know the make and model of your computer. If it's not a major manufacturer (Dell, Gateway, HP, Compaq, etc) then we'll need to know the make and model of your motherboard.

If it is a desktop you can buy a pci card with usb 2.0 connections if you have an available expansion slot. This entails opening the computer.

If it is a laptop you can buy a card to plug into pc card slot. These cards don't work too well if the device needs to draw a lot of power from computer, like an external hard drive.

If you have windows xp when you reboot it will find the new device and install usb 2.0 drivers. If you have an earlier version of windows you would need to install drivers that generally come with device.

I have gone the PCI upgrade route with a 5 port (4 external, 1 internal) USB 2.0 PCI card on my desktops. It is painless, and you still have your 4 1.0/1.1 ports for older or slower devices. One computer had XP Pro and the others W2k. No drivers were needed for XP Pro, and a basic set were needed for W2k.
They are online for $20+-. Worth the upgrade,especially if you have a digital camera.

It will take care of the problem with the least amount of headahce.
Can you go to your Device Manager and confirm you have a 1.1 USB bus. Your USB will be at the bottom of the list. When you expand the folder it will be labeled 1.1 USB or 2.0 USB.

11mbps is the normal speed for WiFi 802.11b but I don't understand the rest of the sentence, what is a "seer"

The message you get is the standard one XP gives if you plug a USB 2 device into a USB 1 computer, it does NOT relate to the speed of the wireless adapter.

Whether you had USB 1 or 2 it would probably make little or no difference whatsoever to the speed of an 802.11b wireless adaptor. If you had an 802.11g 54mbps device however it certainly would.

aclan:

Your particular PC may give this info but it is by no means universal so cannot be relied on. None of my 4 machines states this.

I did not see where he said he was using 802.11b. I see him posing a question as to how to upgrade from USB 1.1 to USB 2.0.
As for my post referring USB being identified in the device manager, you are right. The onboard bus does not show which verison is installed, but the add-on card does. And it does on the 11 of 13 computers I have them install on in my home.
