Question about Belkin (F5U237) 7-Port USB Hub
Power light for the hub is on, but devices recognized by the computer thru other USB ports are not recognized thru the Belkin hub. Owner's manual [found online as PDF file] states that a driver may need to be installed; no installation disk was included with the hub, Windows device installer does not see the hub as a device, Belkin online support was no help. 1]-how can I see what devices are connected to what ports through Windows desktop? 2]- how is a hub detected? why is a driver necessary for a hub? 3]- does a driver exist, how can I download it, and install it? [I don't have administrator rights on this desktop computer, so I need clear instructions to communicate to the person who does] 4]- the owners manual states that the driver may need to be re-installed if the hub's connection to the computer is changed to a different port on the computer; how do I save the driver so I can re-install it again should that happen?

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.
