    Is there an expansion card for an older computer running windows 95 that will utilize USB capability?

    Recently I had a similar problem....
    I found this on eBay
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-PC-HIGH-SPEED-ADAPTER-USB-2-0-5-PORT-4-1-PCI-HUB-CARD-/141688538249?hash=item20fd4b8489:g:OhgAAOSweW5VdMbd
    NO, I am not the seller...
    WARNING!
    Do NOT buy a PCI-e card. It is not the same as the legacy PCI card.

    Looking at this card I think the vendor is not accurate. It looks like a PCI-e card.

    Sad to say, but eBay does not know how to tell people that an old computer does not use PCI-e cards, only the older PCI cards work. a real PITA.

    Look here:

    Sorry about the long URL.
    Stufdy the image carefully. I think the link above is the right card for you.

    On top of that good luck finding workable Win95 USB drivers...
