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

    There are no screws. It was given to me as a gift and Belkin does have a lifetime warranty.
    I'll send it in with an RMA to Belkin.

    In central Texas, neither Circuit City, Best Buy or Fry's carries Belkin.

    I love this style & small footprint. The fact that it's a 'stackable' for several hubs is great. I have read one other post that had the same issue. Seems it is a design flaw!

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!

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 installed a 4 port hub to speed up my file tranfer to a flash drive. The files transfer but not any faster then using the front usb ports. It is normal?

Yes. While the speed from the USB device to the USB hub may be faster (USB 2.0 protocol, rather than the slower USB 1.1 protocol), your hub is still connected to a USB 1.1 port on your computer.

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.
