Question about IOGear 4 Port Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Hub

1 Answer

Iogear 4 port USB 2.0 HUB (Model GUH285) now working properly

Ok. So when i first got my hub, it worked fine and i was able to use it for all my USB needs. But for some reason it stopped working one day. Such as, it won't recognize anything i plug into it. Some things such as a flash drive will light up and then disappear, and it will not be shown on my computer. And my external HD when connected, its LED light will turn on showing its connected and on, however it will not show up anywhere on my computer. I don't think the hub is fried because it still almost recognizes stuff being plugged in. Even my ipod turns on when a USB cable is connected to it, although it will not do anything.

    Brand New, from MacMall.  I tried using it on my brand new MacBook Pro and also on my Toshiba running Vista Premium.  It doesn't work on either.  I got it from MacMall free after a rebate, but I would recommend anyone against purchasing this item.  There is no support on IOGEAR's website.

I think it clearly states that the device is defective.... you need to call IOGEAR for RMA if its still under warranty

The connection on the rear of the hub should go to a USB connection on the laptop, not a PS/2 connection. A PS/2 to USB adapter is used to connect a PS/2 keyboard or mouse to a USB connection.

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).

I have a Q-Stor 7 port USB hub, Model QU2RCT7. I


I don't have the original power supply for my QU2RCT7 either, but most hubs use a 5v DC power adapter, typically with a 2A. (2 amp) rating. I'm using such an adapter with my QU2RCT7 and it works fine. Make sure the adapter you select is tip-positive (ie, the "+" terminal is the "tip," or center, of the connector).

4 port USB hub not working...


Try connecting the hub to another USB port. You may even connect this same device to another computer and check if that works. This will help isolate the issue better.

My dynex usb hub is not working


You need to unplug the power adapter from the wall, and disconnect the usb cord from the PC/laptop for at least 30 seconds. Then plug everything back in. Apparently this model suffers from static electricity from time to time. I have this hub also and it works every time.

Hello,

I'm sorry to tell you your hub cannot be fixed. I have one just like it and have taken these things apart and repaired simple factory errors as loose wires and the such.

You should get yourself another Targus brand USB hub. They are good and quite reliable

Regards,
Worldvet.
