Note that there are 4 slots exposed externally, and 1 is an internal USB slot.
BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS! The fine print says, the system works with Windows XP if you have "Service Pack 1" installed. It took me a long time to figure out what that was and how to install it, but it is really simple. Do a "Google Search" on the internet to find the free site for downloading "Windows XP Service Pack 1." A warning says the download and installation might take 45 minutes with a regular slow modem and phone line connection. I have the slowest of internet connections and modems, but it only took 10 minutes to download and install the service pack 1 free upgrade. Then, you need to reboot (i.e. turn off and turn on again) your computer with this upgrade.
I couldn't find my computer manual when I needed it, but by clicking on the "Start" button on my computer and an "about your computer" link, I was able to access a diagram of the insides of my computer, showing where the extra PCI slots are. This is probably obvious to most people, they are the only empty, pretty long slots. The instructions say to just slip the USB 2.Read more ›
It will cause your computer to not boot up. This is a problem that Iogear is aware of, but only after sending out the manuels.
Without installing any software the card works. Just started using it today, all peripherals work fine.
[Update: IOGear customer service responded by email the same day and suggested I swap this card with another to clear up the problem, and the fix worked. I'm impressed with that level of customer service and the card seems to work fine now. I would rate this a 4 now that it's working.]

This is a great addition to any build, no board has enough USB ports and this is a reliable product. I wish I had bought 2 when I built my system.Published 10 months ago by Alex
