usb 1.1 to 2.0 card?

    I have a 3-4 year old Intel El Paso motherboard w/82845 chipset. It has 2
    front mounted USB 1.1 ports. I traced the cable to the connector on the
    motherboard and it's easily accessible.

    My question: Is there a USB 2.0 PCI card out there that has an internal
    connector compatible with the motherboard connector? The idea being that I
    could just unplug the cable from the motherboard and plug it into my shiny
    new 2.0 card and have front accessible USB 2.0 ports.

    It might help if you looked up the pinout for that front
    port- check the manual, or if all else fails and you have a
    multimeter, check continuity from the port to the cable
    socket contacts.

  3. Old El Paso motherboard, eh? Is that the Tortilla or Fajita chipset? ;o)

    Sorry, couldn't resist. It's not a model I've ever come across, TBH.
