I have multiple products that need to be plugged into USB ports, yet I only have two ports on the back of my computer. Is there some sort of hub or expansion module that I can plug into the back of the computer so that I may leave more than two items plugged in at once. If so please advise as to what model I should get.

You need a device called a USB hub. This hub plugs into one of your existing USB ports on your computer, and expands it by the amount of ports it has in the hub.

Two hubs that have gotten good reviews are by Dlink and Netgear.

I have includes links to these products on amazon:

Dlink 4 Port USB Hub

Netgear 4 Port USB Hub

Click on the Read more link to see info about the products.

Hope this helps.

By the way, you can have up to 127 devices on a USB chain. Why would you need 127 USB devices? :thumbsup:
