Belkin 7 port USB Hub

The front PS interface is jiggly after a very short period of use. I have shimmed over & over only to get frustrated. How do I open the hub without breaking it and fix this internal connection to stable again? Thanks

Re: Belkin 7 port USB Hub

I recommend you not to try to open it. The made it difficult to open for one reason and that is to prevent anyone to fix it so you have to buy another one but if you are experiencing problems of connectivity try this: remove the screws (if any) from the enclosure use a flat screw drive and insert it on the side of the casing's edge (right in the thin gap) apply little pressure and then push the screw driver down then up slightly, do this all around the case and with some patience you may get it open if you must use another flat screw driver to stick it on the part is already opened to keep it from closing back. Do this at your own risk there is no warranty you will be able to fix it once opened. I recommend you buy a D-Link hub they are reliable not to expensive, also easy to open. Good Luck!

Belkin 7 port hub will not work with imac & leopard

Try any other power outlet source on the wall. Are you using the same adaptor to power up the new usb hub?
try the adaptor that came with the new usb hub. Most likely its the power source either the adaptor of the hub or usb hub or the wall power supply. Its strange that the new one is doing the same thing?
Let me know!

Rimshot64, you did help someone out here. Two years later, even. And you succeeded where Microsoft "Help," per its tradition, failed. Thank you -- I got my scanner and printer, etc., back, and wasted only half a day uninstalling Microsoft updates (their suggestion).

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.

I can't seem to get the Belkin 7-port hub to work with windows 7. Whenever I plug a flashdrive into it, windows 7 doesn't give recognize the flashdrive.

windows 7 is a 64 bit OS, and still fairly new. A lot of drivers for hardware are not supporting 64 bit Operating Systems yet, maybe in the near future but right now a lot are not.
Temporarily or permanently switch to Ubuntu. I think this hub is compatible, and you can still read your Windows files in this Linux distribution.

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

My Laptop does not recognize Belkin 7-Port USB Hub(F5U237v1)

Try connecting it to another port or the one on the dock since some devices can be a bit picky about what port they get plugged into.
