PCIe to USB addon card

I will soon buying adapter usb pci-express. Any advice which version to buying to working properly?

I have a couple of suggestions but as @zabadabadoo suggested, you should start a new thread for that.

I use my moderator magic wand to warp us all to the new thread.

The PCIe to USB 3.0 add-on card I use for my Zorin desktop is this: Inateck KT4006 (2 ports)

If you need more ports, Inateck KTU3FR-502U is a 7 port version.

Both cards have Frescologic FL1100-EX chipset which is compatible with Linux (and Hackintosh I might add).

@FrenchPress To keep things tidy, I have copied part of my post back to the old thread which it related to, then deleted the post you split to here.

It does not necessary to have an exactly the same model.
As long as it has a Linux compatible chipset on it, you are good to go :slight_smile:


all coming from made in China then probably all have near the same chipset.

Yup, I see some Linux compatible cards there.

Not necessary so. Some might be from Taiwan.

I wondering on the shop must be some describe what type product will be a comatibility with linux.

Yes, the first one on the list you posted, says for Windows, Mac and Linux.

May be a good idea to go to the item manufacturer or chipset provider to check what they mean by Linux compatible. It is not unheard of that some suppliers just bundle in a very old driver to make that claim.

At least it is an easy return if the claim turned out to be incorrect :wink:

I wondering if this could be a problem why my operating system start slowly 1min 20 sec but this usb also not recognize in W7 but now when I restart from linux to win 7 my keyboard and mouse working after format hard disk. I wondering it could be some software doing this problems. Good advice never install sh*t if you don't need that or asking advice if this not harm your PC. It was problem CMOS. Restart bios helped
