 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I'm trying to use the USB host shield mini version to interface with a USB keyboard. Running the QC sketch that comes with the software, it gets stuck at

Checking USB device communication.

Waiting for device ...
Waiting for device ...
Waiting for device ...

I have the following pins connected thus:

(host shield <-> ATMega328/breadboard)
INT <-> 15(INT1)
GND <-> ground
RESET <-> 3.3v
3.3v <-> 3.3v
SS <-> 16(SS)
MOSI <-> 17(MOSI)
MISO <-> 18(MISO)
SCK <-> 19(SCK)
VBUS  <-> 5v

None of the GPIO pins are connected.

I can measure the voltage to VBUS and to the USB port at ~5v, and the mouse I'm using to test lights up.

Do i have a rx/tx line crossed or something?

Here's the schematic with pin numbers as per Arduino Pro Mini -> Also make sure your Atmega is powered from 3.3V otherwise USB Host shield won't be able to detect USB device on the bus.
