Adding Four USB Hub to Dell D600 Laptop



Flightless Bird
I have a used Dell Latitude D600 O/S WINXP PRO. I am trying to find a
way to add two additional USB ports making it a total 4 usable USB ports for:

1 - Wireless Mouse
1 - 16GB Toshiba Flash drive (backup)
1 - 400GB Toshiba Portable external drive (Data drive)
1 - USB wireless modem or external floppy drive.

I tried using a 4 ports Hub than change to 4 ports external powered Hub.
Neither one can drive more than 2 USB attachments. If I use Dell docking
station (with 4 USB ports), I can only use three USB attachments and
that depend where and how I attach the three USB attachment.

Is there any solution to my problem. I need at least three functional USB
ports. Wireless mouse, can't do without it. I bootup with the 400GB Toshiba
external drive, for Internet/emails/browser/etc and where kept my data.
And the last USB port for either wireless modem or floppy disk.

Thanks for reading
