The cable that came with my hub has a pigtail for connecting to the computer. TWO USB plugs. I have long since lost the packaging so I don't know what they are for. One is blue while the other is the...

It could be to supply extra power to the hub. Basically the USB can only supply 500mA of power so by using 2 ports one can supply 1000mA double what one port could power.

Where can I find a power supply for the Encore ENU-4USB 4-port external mimi USB hub?

The power supply is a 5 VDC, 500 mA (outer negative, inner positive) commonly used for mp3 players, but probably you must cut the mini usb plug and adapt a compatible jack with the hub.

Hello, I have a Belkin 2.0 USB 7-Port Hub, and having trouble with it. When i plug it into my computer, nothing happens, there is no power light and ultimately it seems as though the device is dead. ...

You first need a CAT 5 cable to go to where your internet connection is, such as a modem or another router to your hub. Then you plug another CAT 5 from the hub to your PC. You need to feed internet to the hub then your pc will recieve a connection from the hub. And of course the hub does need power. Hope that's what you were asking.

4 port HUB is connected. My computer doesn't show it. Help! It is all plugged in with USB cable and when I go to MY COMPUTER it doesn't show.

The hubs usually show up in the hardware list and not as a seperate device. Only way to know it is there is to plug a usb device into it.

I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especialy true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

Power supply for Targus 4 hub usb 2

Most USB hubs do not need an external power supply, except when a connected USB device draws more power than the computer/laptop USB port can supply. In this case an external power supply will need to be connected to the USB hub.
Normally this would be a 5 volt power supply, but make sure the polarity on the connector matches the power connector on the hub, check the label on the hub, sometimes it states to power requirements of the hub as well as the polarity on the connector. Normally the pin on the hub's power connector is positive (ie. +5V)

Connection problem between modem router and hub

Sounds like you may need what is called a "Crossover Cable' connecting your router to your hub, or if either device has an uplink port, use it on one device to connect to normal port on other device. Here are instructions for making your own cables:
