Note that it is not in fact a UHCI controller if it supports USB 2.0.
It is difficult (maybe impossible) to find a UHCI PCI card.
An EHCI controller will only and always communicate with high-speed
devices using EHCI.
The EHCI controller and it's so-called companion controllers do not
mirror each port. Any connected device will only appear attached to
one controller, and it will always be the same controller for a given
device and a given physical port.
In other words, for you to be able to use UHCI with this PCI card,
you must attach a USB 1.1-only MSC device to one of the ports.
Please have a look at the EHCI standard for more details, and feel
free to ask questions. Especially Figure 1-1 and the descriptions on
the same page (3) are very good for getting a better understanding of
these parts of USB.
