Hey folks, I need a hub that has at least 7 ports (thank you dongles...) and connect to 2 pcs through the use of a switch. Unfortunately, the only 7 port hub that does this (that I could find) had consistently horrible reviews online... so I think I'm going to need two 4 port hubs that do this. No problem, I suppose.

I'm using an XP 32 laptop and an XP 64 desktop. Anyone here using one they can suggest? I'm interested to hear of any issues with a 64 bit OS (I don't think it matters, but I'm not sure...).

I had an idea since I posted this.

I could use a 1 port 2 pc switch and hook it up to a normal 7 port usb hub. Does anyone have an idea if this would be better than using two 4 port hubs?
