Question about Belkin (F1U201) 2-Port USB Switch
Downloaded the most recent driver from Belkin to both Windows XP computers and I get the same message: USB device has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it. This device has worked in the past without issue on Wondows 2000 Pro computers. Belkin offers the driver for XP.

Please advise of further info. All the connected PC's are running on XP. One is not connecting to the network. Sounds like the "Local Area Network" setting needs to be set for "Automatically assign an IP". Go to the start menu, select "Run" and type in "CMD". Type "IPCONFIG" and enter. This will display your network setting and IP address. If there is no IP address, then you will enever have a connection. If the IP address is listed, it will display a unique IP address, a subnet of 255.255.255.0 and the ip address of the gateway. Please respond with any further.

If you set the allowed IP address in the security section of the router then you must fix your computer IP to 192.168.1.101 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 the default gateway should still be 192.168.1.1 and when you get in delete the security locking out all but the one address. Good Luck

The problem is from the belkin usb port software, the belkin usb port software you installed on your system is corrupt and will need to be reinstalled, the previous downloaded or copy of the CD you installed the software from is corrupt, uninstall the belkin usb port software and get another copy of the software to reinstall on your system, with this, the problem will be fix and doing that will solve the problem.

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.
