Inland 7 port usb 2 hub, inconsistent connection

On a Dell Latitude D600, (Win XP SP3) this hub provides only inconsistent connections to the devices attached to it. A scanner, and an external modem, in particular, seem to disappear after a couple of hours. This can be rectified by detaching and re-attaching the USB connector from the hub. This is impractical, especially with the modem, which needs to stay connected for fax reception when unattended for long periods. Yesterday a printer was "off line" according to print manager, but again was restored through the detach, reattach technique.

    I think I should mention that the USB port on the laptop is a USB 1, the hub is a backward compatible 2. I tried the fix mentioned, but still have the same problem.

  • puzzler0373 Sep 06, 2008

    What I learned from a local wiz is that USB devices like scanners and modems are particularly sensitive to disconnection when on a hub. I connected the scanner to an available port on the laptop and installed a PC to USB card for the modem. After some difficulty reinstalling the drivers for the modem, both devises are now working well.

    I'd have to say that the most recent reply was confusing, perhaps because of a language translation issue. Moreover, it didn't offer a solution.

    I believe there was a money back guarantee. Please contact me regarding obtaining a refund.

    Another Important setting that you need to check is, under device manager right click the USB Root Hub and open the properties.

    Under the Power Management Tab, make sure that he following option is unchecked.

    Allow windows to turn off the device to save power.

    This should work in your case.

Usb drive not recognised


First of all THe Belkin F5u237 is not a USB Drive. It is a USB Hub. If your running Windows XP it should see any device connected to the hub. If it dosen't see anything connected you may need to add the power supply to the hub.

I just had the same problem and was able to figure our a permanent fix.Judging by the date of you post, I'm guessing you've already remedied this problem one way or another. But just in case you haven't or someone else is having the same problem, I'll go ahead and post what to do. First, make sure you leave the USB hub plugged in right now so that Device Manager lists what it thinks is the Bluetooth device. Go into Control Manager > Hardware & Sound > Device Manager. Right click on Bluetooth device that is showing up in error. From the dropdown box, select Properties. Click the Driver Tab. Click Uninstall. Check "Delete the driver software for this device." Click OK. Unplug your USB hub for a few seconds, then plug it back in. Windows should now recognize it as a "Generic USB hub." You should be good to go. Just remember not to install that update again or try to update the driver for the Generic USB hub. If you do, you'll end up with the same problem. I hope this helps someone out there.

sometimes usb hard drives will not work through a usb hub.
if the drive works connected to the laptop but not the hub then that's how you'll have to use it.
it's also possible the laptop cannot power both the hub AND the drive, in whaich case you'll need a powered hub (one you plug in to the mains).

One day the Belkin 7 port hub works the next day it doesn't


Your problems with the Belkin 7 port are not due to the Dell computer or the XP OS. To problem solve, select on USB port and stay with it, not the 2 top ports for your keyboard and mouse. 1. Plug in the power adapter, wiggle it about, widen the prongs, change outlets at the 120 v. end. 2. Use an simple hand magnifier and peer closely at the DC input plug and be positive that the center post and the minue side piece of metal if in firm constact with the plug. If cannot insure a firm fit, sligtly bend that tiny metal piece towards center. Option 2, use another adaptor with the precise voltage as the original and the idential pin that inserts into the module. 3. Use another or new USB connector.
This list does not imply a specific order of diagnosis. Your fundamental problem is the failure to delive DC power to the Belkin hub or to capture the hub to USB port signal. In a phrase, you gotta short somewhere.not an issue with the computer or the XP operating system. Bill Miller

What is this small round hole for???


Although i have not seen your device specifically i looked it up and that unit if I am not mistaken has an option to plug a switching power adapter on it IF and only IF in case you might need it to power on additional devices. Some USB devices need more power than normal hence the adapter but any device that runs on its own power and small USB devices dont need such power then you do not need the external adapter ( Sold separately and not by the same company) Basically you are not missing anything dont worry if the unit works as it should then you are ok.

If you need further assistance just message me.

USB hub


Do you have Windows XP and at least Service pack 2 installed.
Service Pack 2 comes bundled with the neccessary drivers for USB 2.0
In device manager under the USB heading you must have:
PCI to USB Enhanced Host Controller
In the list.

External Harddrive Ignorance...


I've seen this happen with hubs being connected to external hard drives before.

Do you have a free usb port on the back of your computer you can plug it into?

That should fix the problem.
