    Which USB Hub do you recommend to buy?

    I have a wii that is hacked. I have the hard drive connected in one of the usb ports of the wii. I want to use the two microphones that I bought but I can only use one because I only have one slot left. I bought a usb hub to connect the mics but it doesnt read them. I tried a self-powered usb hub and a powered usb hub and nothing. Maybe I am connecting it wrong?

    Which USB hub do you recommend me to buy that will be able to work?

    I just bought a 7 port Belkin and it works great with 2 microphones. It has an external power source.



    Belkin part# F4U018-BLK



    Also
    * Nintendo has not licensed any makes of commercially available USB hubs for use with the Wii console. Accordingly, Nintendo cannot guarantee that they will all be compatible with the Wii console. However, without wishing to make any particular recommendation, Nintendo can confirm that it has tested the Premium 4-Port USB hub manufactured by Logitech and that it appears to function properly.

    Looks great...but its going to be out of stock for a while according to the company... Can you recommend another one? Or the specifications that it needs? If its possible something not to price cause i spent alot on the hard drive

    If you plan on using the hub on an Emulated NAND than make sure the devise is 1.1 only.
    If you plan on using the hub on real NAND than it can be 2.0

    EDIT:
    I should have also added that I have the Belkin F5U045P USB 1.1 4-Port Hub.
    And it works with Rock Band 3 on an Emulated NAND with 3 microphone.

    Hi,
    Am having a problem with Glee and 2 mics. My mics connect thru a wireless datel unit which connects to a single usb on the wii. 1 mic works fine and you can play. But
    when you want to play duet the other mic does not get picked up. Do you need to connect 2 mics in 2 seperate usb connectors at rear of wii. I do not have 2 seperate Usb mics.
    Message comes up, please connect 2 usb mics to usb connectors ! Is anyone having same problem.
