SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: Belkin F4U017 7 port USB

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.

Hi.

I would like to know if you have tried hooking up this USB device to a different computer. There is a possibility that this hub is underpowered that it why it is no longer recognizing the usb devices.

Since the hub is still warranty, I suggest that you send it in for a replacement or repair.

Thank you!

Does the F5U237 work with windows 8.1


It looks like Belkin stop support on certain models of Belkin, even thou you don't state the version model. But if you have a chance, visit this microsoft website which explain that it's not compatible with Windows 8.1

This is likely due to power consumption, if a hub doesn't have it's own power adapter, then it is drawing bus power from your computer, and will not have enough power to drive larger devices.

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 have an Belkin (F5U237) 7-Port USB Hub that is not compatable with windows vista. Is there a fix for this?


if Win7-64 is installing this hub as a "Broadcom Bluetooth Device" or some such nonsense, heres a fix that has FINALLY worked for me...
START > CONTROL PANEL > HARDWARE AND SOUND > Device Manager.
Plug in your hub, and when it pops up under bluetooth radios with an error, right click, then select properties.
Under properties, select the DRIVER tab, then select UPDATE DRIVER.
It should prompt you to choose between "Search Automatically..." or "Browse my computer..."
Choose "Browse my computer for driver software."
It should bring up a location box to search, but there should be an option below the box that says "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer."
Select this option.
This will bring up a list of drivers available.
UNCHECK the "Show compatible hardware" box!!!!!!!
Then browse until you see (Generic USB Hub). Select the first driver on this list and it will work.
The windows generic driver file that works with my hub is in:
C:\Windows\system32\drivers\usbhub.sys
If the above solution doesn't work, you can try to navigate to this specific driver file during a manual installation. Good luck.

WD My Book 1TB not recognised by belkin modem router USB storage


I have a work around for this.

In the detail of the Belkin manuals it says you can attach up to 4 USB storage devices via a USB HUB.

I had an old Hub so I Connected the HUB to the router and the Maxtor to the HUB --- It worked :-) It came up in a few seconds.

At first I powered the HUB but later took the power out of the hub and it still worked ;-} However when I used a different HUB it would not work without power to the HUB.

The HUB I use is an old Belkin 4 port Tetra Hub. The newer 7 port Belkin HUB (5 Rear 2 Top) only worked with the HUB powered.

Hope this helps untill Belkin Upgrade the Router sofrtare.

Bought HP S20 New in box on Ebay......installed software......powered up and linked USB......message "communication with scanner lost" cannot rectify


I use an older USB Powered Hub between my computer and the S20 scanner, a Belkin I found at a garage sale for $2 works fine. It is only rated for USB 1.1. The S20 is a USB 1.1 device. My computer was "too fast" with its USB 2.0 ports and it looks like I needed to "slow it down". There is no way it will worked plugged directly into the computer, but plugged into the hub, and then the hub plugged into the computer, it is very reliable.

Windows XP had nothing to do with it, from what I can see. I had Windows XP on a previous computer with only USB 1.1, and ran into the problem when I got a computer with USB 2.0 ports.

External Harddrive Ignorance...


I've seen this happen with hubs being connected to external hard drives before.

Do you have a free usb port on the back of your computer you can plug it into?

That should fix the problem.
