Sorry for the very late reply I was reading up on MS server 2008 today and came across something I wasn't aware of. USB 2.0 is a shared bandwidth so depending on the number of connections to a specific controller the speed will be greatly reduced furthermore hubs will split the bandwidth even more. To test terminations you need a Network line Analyzer there usually expensive (not to be confused with a line tester that only test the connectivity of the line not the bandwidth). If you purchased your lines from a retailer they were tested or qualified by the manufacture before they were shipped to the retailer. However strain, nicks, cuts and animal bites will destroy them. I use This
To test my connections and a Line verifier
when it all goes wrong.
Edit: Found the exact model line verifier my employer uses.
