You either need to buy/install a USB 2.0 PCI controller card, or buy a new computer. You cannot upgrade your ports.

Here's a cheapie card as an example. You can also get cards with 4 external ports:

Well the above is correct, you may be degrading your USB 2.0 port by using a hub. Connect directly to a port on the motherboard.
