Question about Inland (08304) 4-Port USB Hub

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.

  • Sameer Kashyap Sep 06, 2008

    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.

    All the Best

We are connecting a Printer Gadget to DELL D600 laptop and it is getting detected. But when we connect a USB memory device to DELL laptop it is displaying "USB Device not recognized" message....


Sounds like the"device" is using all the current on the USB Bus ... buy a USB Hub ($5 on Ebay) to see if it cures the problem. USB current is very limited, but a Hub has it's own power supply.

None of 2 usb ports work, drivers fine in device manager tried uninstall ane restart, drivers all install no issue ,, usb still not working


measure the voltage of the usb ports. if it is higher than 5v, than you have a problem. in this case you have to buy a usb hub and connect it through the pcm cia port.
but for your safety reinstall your os first and see if this happeneds again

Hi Roger,

The Windows command you used to uninstall the USB port is correct. If they all work bar one, then i think its safe to say it's possibly a hardware issue.

The only other fix i can think of is to update the BIOS with the latest version from the Dell support website.



Good luck.

You can use a powered USB hub to charge your iPod, MP3 player etc. without connecting to a laptop's computer USB port.
Just connect the mains adapter to the USB hub and then plug your iPod into the hub for as long as you need.
You can also use this hub for your computer/laptop when you need extra USB ports..
