is it possible to boost USB Bus Power in Keyboard?

Message #1 - Posted 2005/10/09 - leejabramson@yahoo.com

I have a Power Mac G5 running Tiger. I'd like to connect my USB headset and my touchpad to the two USB ports on the keyboard. The headphones only work intermittently. Is there a way to boost bus power?

Could you buy a powered hub, and plug the keyboard into that, and the hub into the G5? Would that work?
