The connector header on my motherboard (pretty much standard on most makes now) for extra USB ports looks like this

ooooo
oooo

It is for 2 USB ports. I need to get 3 ports out of it. Does anyone make some sort of adapter or do I need to make one myself from the array of connectors and pins at Fry's. And one more thing. >> USB from what I have read can support 127 devices on a single channel. Does anyone foresee a problem with what I am attempting?

Thank you

you need to get a USB hub to allow u to use up to 127 devices.

Bear in mind that the bandwidth for each device to the hub will share the bandwidth of a single usb port.

Just buy a 4-port hub or whatever. You don't need to go creating any sort of makeshift USB splitter or anything!

The Abit IT7 MB will support 6 USB ports onboard . . . . .

No need for a hub :)

Gee guys .. am I slow here or are these answers way off base?

The connector I showed:
ooooo
oooo

is an internal connector for extra USB ports. Mr Jiffylube wants me to buy a USB hub .. Well tell me Mr. 10-40, how do I hook up the hub to this port? And then Mr. Tx want to compare motherboard size .. is that a guy thing?? "My motherboard has so many ports that it has it's own zip code"

Comments? or Help .. Thank you ......
