Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Just bought an Ativa 7 port USB 2.0 Hub and don't know how to connect it to my computer. No manual came with it.

I thought I could just plug it into my USB port on my computer but the cables has two port inserts - one regular sized and the other smaller. I have no where to plug in the smaller insert.

The ones that I have seen have 7 ports 5 in back 2 on top these are called Type A USB ports, to the left of the back ports the power port is there. To the right, there is a smaller port usually a USB Mini B or Micro A port that is where the small end plugs into and the Type A on the cable goes to your computer.

Try to assign an IP address to the second computer like 192.168.0.101 Subnet 255.255.255.0 and Default gateway 192.168.0.1

Note: This one is an example of IP address, the IP address that you need to assign is in range to the router that you have or with in range to the modem.

SOURCE: Power supply for Targus 4 hub usb 2

Most USB hubs do not need an external power supply, except when a connected USB device draws more power than the computer/laptop USB port can supply. In this case an external power supply will need to be connected to the USB hub.
Normally this would be a 5 volt power supply, but make sure the polarity on the connector matches the power connector on the hub, check the label on the hub, sometimes it states to power requirements of the hub as well as the polarity on the connector. Normally the pin on the hub's power connector is positive (ie. +5V)

SOURCE: 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

HP LaserJet 2430 Printer Will Not Print since USB Power Surge Error


INSUFFICIENT POWER - USB PORT
If you get an error message "Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB device into the computer's USB port or the un-powered USB hub that is attached to the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive current that the USB port cannot supply. The maximum output from an USB port is 500mA. In case such as this, you need to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer's USB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

Power surge on hub - can't download photos


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.


If you insist on using the USB connection, bypass the hub and connect your camera directly to your computer. This may require disconnecting your printer or other devices if you don't have enough USB ports. The camera is drawing too much current for the hub to handle, but a direct connection should be able to provide it.

Where is the driver belkin f5u101pc


There shouldn't be any driver required for this hub. It's a standard USB device. If your computer supports USB 2.0 connections, you should be able to just plug this device in and then plug your addition USB devices into the hub and it should just work.

If you don't have an existing USB port on your computer, then you're out of luck with this device.

My computer don't see mt toshiba 500 GB external disk. I had Win XP with SP3 and my external disk is connected to a USB hub with 8 ports. I had a pen connected to that hub and the computer see it. But...


Your USB hub cannot provide enough power for your external hdd, you can try to plug it in directly to any free USB port for the mean time to check if its detected or not, if it has a power button ( which is not normal for regular USB powered EXT HDD) make sure that it is on, if its still not working try to use a different cable, a known good cable or plug it in to a different computer to check if its your USB port, or the usb cable or the ext hdd that is causing the issue

Hope this help.

My 500gb portable harddrive was working but then i tried gettin into it, and all of a sudden it closed and will now, not load up when connected to any computers. it turns on but will not load up on screen.


These drives usually take a few min to be recognized by windows 7. If its not windows 7 try another usb port make sure its a port directly on the pc not on a hub.If still nothing connect it to the pc go to control panel>>administrative tools>>computer management>>storage>>disk management and see if its in the list of drives. If it isnt then you prolly have a defective drive.

Does the ativa ATIVA-MP400 player usea a power adapter to charge?


It is supposed to charge with either an adapter that plugs into the wall ie: DC 5V 400mA, or through a USB 2.0 port on your computer. The 1.1 USB ports do not carry enough current to properly charge any USB powered items.

WD My Book 1TB not recognised by belkin modem router USB storage


I have a work around for this.

In the detail of the Belkin manuals it says you can attach up to 4 USB storage devices via a USB HUB.

I had an old Hub so I Connected the HUB to the router and the Maxtor to the HUB --- It worked :-) It came up in a few seconds.

At first I powered the HUB but later took the power out of the hub and it still worked ;-} However when I used a different HUB it would not work without power to the HUB.

The HUB I use is an old Belkin 4 port Tetra Hub. The newer 7 port Belkin HUB (5 Rear 2 Top) only worked with the HUB powered.

Hope this helps untill Belkin Upgrade the Router sofrtare.
