Question about Belkin (F5U307)
Why does the power light no longer stay on, on my belkin 7-port USB hub (white / blue model from walmart.com) after I accidently knocked it out, the cord looks fine, the inside where it plugs in looks fine, and now when my computer is off and no devices are on, why isn't the red indicator on, and instead it is NOW only on when the computer is on? How can I get it to stay on always again?
By the way, to prove that before my computer was off, I unplugged the cable from my Mac, and the red indicator stayed on, and now, it won't if the computer isn't on / not in sleep, or if it isn't plugged in. Also, it is plugged in a wall, not a power-serge.

If it has its own power then it should be OK however if you have 4 devices connected pulling too much load then it wont work - check the devices to see if this is the case. Unplug one at a time and see what happens
Hope this helps

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.
