It should work with USB1.x. Have you disabled USB2 EHCI driver?
I have done many tests now I don't remember all the sequence, but I have to add that I have desoldered the 3com lan chip because I have in mind to reball it (since it worked only if I pressed it on the board), in the while the a1g3se is working without, so this could be the usb problem now.
anyway, the NEC usb card doesn't work anymore, even if it's recognized and I have disabled the uhci driver (of course it's working flawlessly on a PC).
the onboard usb worked 'fine' only with 4.0, 4.1 and maybe 4.1.1
now, with updated 4.1.6. if I enable onboard usb and disable echi driver, the boot stops at splash screen, but, as I said, it could be due to the missing 3com chip....
