How many USB devices
« on: 24 April 2012, 09:56:39 am »

How many USB devices can a Dreamplug support? I find more than 2-3 devices cause the Dreamplug to reboot or continuously cycle through its start-up procedure

Are you using a powered hub ?

Yes they are through a powered hub. If too many devices attached the DP cycles though a partial boot sequence. If too many added once booted it will reboot and then cycle.

Hmm, I would see how many stayed powered up when connected only to the hub (disconnect the Dreamplug).
Got a multimeter that will measure 5v ?

I am concerned that I too may have the same problem if I use a powered USB hub to power an USB keyboard, mouse, LCD monitor and network adapter. Are other members having the same problem? Or is this atypical?
