I'm looking for a PCI USB 2.0 controller for my old ASUS TUV4X that has only USB 1.1 ports.
I've found a lot of controllers using VIA VT6212L chipset: via.com.tw/en/products/p...als/usb/vt6212/
Checking at linux-usb.org/usb2.html it says:
You'll find that most PCI USB 2.0 add-in cards (and CardBus/PCMCIA ones) use the NEC silicon or the VT62x2, though there are other vendors. (Including ALI.) The cards that do both USB 2.0 and FireWire have for some reason been a problem for many people, even those without built-in PCI bridges. Avoid the VT6202 cards; but VT6212 should be OK.
Googling for "VT6212L linux" and searching on this forum I've found a lot of recent posts with people stating the controller is detected properly during boot but any device plugged to its ports doesn't work at all.
Now I'm in doubt if controllers using VIA chipset work or not under Linux.
Did anyone have or had experience with this chipset?
Could someone indicate what USB 2.0 controller card would be the best for Linux and if it's know to work properly on Linux?
