Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I recently purchased the Belkin Network USB Hub (F5L009) and have hooked it up to my wireless network. I have a multi-function printer and an external Maxtor OneTouch 4 hard drive attached to it. Most of the time the printer works, though the scanning feature is iffy for unknown reasons from time to time. The bigger issue, however, is the Maxtor hard drive. It is consistently giving me problems. Sometimes my computer(s) will not connect to it whatsoever. Sometimes it will continually disconnect and reconnect. And once, somehow, the drive became corrupted for no reason at all (I didn't add any files to it), and the computer couldn't even see the drive when directly connected. This all started when I hooked it up to this device. I need to know why this is happening, but I can't seem to find anyone posting about this device in junction with an external hard drive, and Belkin doesn't even have support forums on their site.

    Thanks tazman. Yeah, I've been to the support site a few times. I have all the updated drivers and firmware, and am still running into this issue. I'm beginning to think it's just reliability issues of the device itself, and unfortunately, this is supposed to be the best product on the market for this. In fact, I think it may be the only one. And when I say that, I mean the only USB hub that can perform over a network.

Belkin Wireless 5-Port Hub (F5L009) Problem


If you set the allowed IP address in the security section of the router then you must fix your computer IP to 192.168.1.101 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 the default gateway should still be 192.168.1.1 and when you get in delete the security locking out all but the one address. Good Luck

Wireless hub


I had the problem that,even though the hdd connected it would fail after a period of time (video streaming or file transfers). Set up was Samsung Q45 running wireless g connected to a belkin draft N Router. 3 other PCs (all g) using 2 different OS (Vista and Mac) had same problem.

Solution after months of searching, problem solved. Fitted Draft n PCMCIA card, and to ensure it was running at 300Mb had to use WPA PSK + WPA2 PSK security mode . Now works brilliantly and has managed to stream a full HD movie!! The Wireless link is now running faster 10Mbs compared with 4Mbs on g, although not fast it at least enables the HHD to be used in a stable configuration. Problem seems to be that the unit will not work properly unless wireless n link is used.

HP printer will not print over wireless network using Belkin hub


Try turning everything off, wait a couple of seconds and then turn it back on.  Also try disabling McAffee to test.  When you go to printers and faxes on the PC, what is the status of your printer?

Can I wirelessly network my HP Officejet J5780 printer?


What you are saying will not work . The J5780 only connects with a USB. It does not have a J45 connection. So to play with the "built in network server" would do nothing. You would have to have some way to convert the USB to a J45 so he could hook it to his Wireless Router. His only alternative is to hook it to another computer that is used as a Wireless Slave that is shared or to get a print server. Hower, Belkin does make a wireless USB Hub that converts 5 USB's to J45 and can be hooked to you Wireless Router. It also has a built in Print Server. You can take this device and instead of hooking it J45 to the Router you can hook it to a linksys Bridge and now the USB HUB from Belkin becomes completely wireless. And has a Print server to boot! The model number are Belkin "Network USB Hub" and the Linksys WET54G.
Since the Hub connects to the USB devices and then converts them to a J45, to link to a network you can hook it to the llinksys device and convert it to a wireless network usb hub. It also has a print server built in.
It works. I own the same printer all in one and if you search on the internet you can pick up both devices on the cheap.

Belkin N1 Wireless Adaptor not connecting on PC


what the adviser meant was your pc cannot provide enough power to the usb port to power the unit, assuming you have tried other ports and it still wont work; you will need to either purchase a pci usb 2.0 card adapter or purchase a mains powered usb hub and connect to this instead.
