    My Dell Latitude D600 Laptop came with 2 USB ports (USB 1 or 2?) and
    I added a docking station. increases 2 USB to 4 ports. I need more than 3
    USB ports for - Wireless mouse, floppy drive, externa HD, wireless Linksys
    adaptors, flash card, DVD/CD-RW drive and printer.

    I don't use the above USB attachments all at once, except external HD, wireless
    mouse, and flash card. If I add either 1 or 2 more USB attachments I have
    problems, the spaces between the USB slots are too close. I cannot get the USB
    inserted and also my wireless mouse become erratic. It seem that the wireless
    mouse must be at certain position to work properly. I added a 4 ports USB
    extension cable to the Docking station, fair no better as I cannot attached more
    than two USB attachmenton to the extended USB. The icons either missing or
    wireless mouse become erratic.

    Anyone got better idea, what I need to do to get my mouse work properly with
    more than 3 USB attachments. BTW, are there an external powered USB edtension?

    Thanks for your help.
