I did once ask the q in a shop, the guy thought plugging a keyboard
into the B end of the hub - using an A-B adaptor, would do it.

There is only one type of USB cable.. say, straighthrough. So, it is

Plug a keybaord into it, and it won't work. 'cos a keyboard interface
is the opposite of a computers. That is how the straightthrough usb
cable connects them
