Question about Belkin (F5U237) 7-Port USB Hub

My Laptop does not recognize Belkin 7-Port USB Hub(F5U237v1)

This hub does not work at all when connected to my laptop. My laptop is IBM T42 and should be able to support it. The power part seems to work because I plugged my notebook cooler to it and the cooler worked fine. But everything except the cooler didn't work at all. Please advise. Thanks.

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.

Belkin 7 port hub will not work with imac & leopard


Try any other power outlet source on the wall. Are you using the same adaptor to power up the new usb hub?
try the adaptor that came with the new usb hub. Most likely its the power source either the adaptor of the hub or usb hub or the wall power supply. Its strange that the new one is doing the same thing?
Let me know!

Usb drive not recognised


First of all THe Belkin F5u237 is not a USB Drive. It is a USB Hub. If your running Windows XP it should see any device connected to the hub. If it dosen't see anything connected you may need to add the power supply to the hub.

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 can't seem to get the Belkin 7-port hub to work with windows 7. Whenever I plug a flashdrive into it, windows 7 doesn't give recognize the flashdrive.


windows 7 is a 64 bit OS, and still fairly new. A lot of drivers for hardware are not supporting 64 bit Operating Systems yet, maybe in the near future but right now a lot are not.
Temporarily or permanently switch to Ubuntu. I think this hub is compatible, and you can still read your Windows files in this Linux distribution.

sometimes usb hard drives will not work through a usb hub.
if the drive works connected to the laptop but not the hub then that's how you'll have to use it.
it's also possible the laptop cannot power both the hub AND the drive, in whaich case you'll need a powered hub (one you plug in to the mains).

One day the Belkin 7 port hub works the next day it doesn't


Your problems with the Belkin 7 port are not due to the Dell computer or the XP OS. To problem solve, select on USB port and stay with it, not the 2 top ports for your keyboard and mouse. 1. Plug in the power adapter, wiggle it about, widen the prongs, change outlets at the 120 v. end. 2. Use an simple hand magnifier and peer closely at the DC input plug and be positive that the center post and the minue side piece of metal if in firm constact with the plug. If cannot insure a firm fit, sligtly bend that tiny metal piece towards center. Option 2, use another adaptor with the precise voltage as the original and the idential pin that inserts into the module. 3. Use another or new USB connector.
This list does not imply a specific order of diagnosis. Your fundamental problem is the failure to delive DC power to the Belkin hub or to capture the hub to USB port signal. In a phrase, you gotta short somewhere.not an issue with the computer or the XP operating system. Bill Miller
