Apologies if this is a kind of off-topic for this list - since it does
not have anything to do with FreeBSD.
The external USB-hubs (v2.0) that I've come across comes in two categories:
Some are willing to deliver power (500mA pr. connector) even if the hub
isn't connected to a computer - and some that doesn't do this - the hubs
that I have purchased from Dlink falls into the last category.
I looking for an USB hub that is willing to deliver power without it
beeing connected to a computer in order to drive some external units -
no it is not a mobile-phone ;-)
Could anyone give me a hint what specs to look for ? - before I actually
buy another hub - the Dlink ones were not a success...
Thanks in advance.
Kind regards Uffe Jakobsen
