Re: How many real USB Ports? (not from HUB)
Did you also figure out exactly which ports belong to the 2.0 hub and which ports belong to the 1.1 hubs.
I already answered this question in the "other thread" but I'll drop that answer here as well for the record.
According to our experiments there seems to be no such direct hardware wiring. It didn't matter what port we used, our USB 1.1 devices always ended up on one of the 1.1 hubs while 2.0 devices ended up on the 2.0 hub.
I don't know what it is but there seems to be some "logic" routing the devices to the "correct" controller.
