Welcome to LinuxQuestions

As far as I know their isn't any native support. A quick scan of the manual looks like they added some new functionality where you can share USB drives via SMB/CIFS but not other devices.

Thank you Michealk,
I installed HMPS2U for two laptops, one Win 7 the other xp. HMPS2U worked fine from windows. I have wiped the xp machine and installed Ubuntu 13.10. Now orking through LFS 7.4. I am at the point of setting up network in chapter 7 prior to linux install. Looking for suggestions to enable access to wireless usb hub. I have little network or hardware experience so am researching networking and usb but doubt I will be writting any drivers anytime soon.
