I'm a little embarrassed to say that the fix was easy. It just took me a long time to figure out. It turns out that even though the item was brand new the USB cord included was bad. When I replaced it with one I had on another item it worked fine. Thanks for the email.

This device should be recognized automaticaly by the OS. There are some issues with Windows 7, though.
Make sure you are trying to plug it in a 2. USB port, rather than 1.1. This might cause you trouble (even though this will not be a problem if you have a new computer)
Connect the hub to the external powercord. Sometimes it is not recognized because the hub cannot drain enough energy from the port.
if you are using a desktop pc, make sure it is plugged in the rear usb ports and not at the ones up front.

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.

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

Iogear 4 port USB 2.0 HUB (Model GUH285) now working properly


I think it clearly states that the device is defective.... you need to call IOGEAR for RMA if its still under warranty

Installing USB Hub


After installing the USB controller card into a PCI slot inside your computer, connect the 4 port hub to it with the supplied cable. (at the back of the computer)
Do not connect the DVD Recorder to the old usb ports. They will still work, but obviously not 2.0.

Connecting the power supply for the hub is optional, but usually a good idea.

If your computer still doesn't recognize the hub, make sure you have all of the latest windows updates and try running Add New Hardware in control panel. Also, just unplugging the hub and plugging it back in will sometimes work. Use a different port on the controller card if necessary.

As a last resort, you may need to disable the onboard usb controller through your system bios.

Good Luck

I-rocks IR-4300 4-Port USB Hub doesnt work


You shouldn't need a driver for it, Windows has bundled native drivers that will be enough to make it work.
Does anything else work in the port you plug the hub into?

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.

Not Reading Peripherals - i-rocks IR-4100 4-Port USB Hub


If your looking for a good quality USB hub, i would go with a Belkin. They do cost more than most other hubs, but from the 8 years i have been at my retail store, they have had the lowest return rate of all that I have sold.
