I have a programmable board with 4 usb host connectors, 3 visible and 2 usb hubs/2 port each (you can enable 1&2 and/or 3&4).
1 port is not providing any energy, as far I can see, there is 1 capacitor and 2 other nearby components used in every usb port. I wish to know if someone knows anything I can do to debug this problem or has any experience (what can be damaged?)
I discovered that the nearby usb DOES provide power but the board itself reboots if I use that port for a while for example with a usb keyboard.
The board is an eBox 3350MX: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280703095602&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123
