    yes. Rapid and clear. The only problem is it confirms my fear that the device is bust! You might have a lower cost option for suspected dead kit?! Anyway it's cheaper than taking it to a mender...

Hi - You're presumption about the fix is correct. There is very little in terms of circuitry inside such a hub and even if one had circuit board level experience there would be no good reason to bother fixing it.

When you purchase another hub, remember in the case of such devices, a hub is a hub is a hub -- No reason to pay any name brand premium.

Regards and Thank you for using Fix Ya

Belkin F5U307 Hub suddenly doesnot work on my Macbook


The lights (link light) on the hub indicate the LAN cable from the computer to the hub is connected and working.Disconnect the cable fron the hub and the computer then connect the Lan cable to the computer first and the other end of the LAN cable to the hub anf the link light for that LAN port on the hub should light up. If not the LAN cable could be faulty then try a different LAN cable.
NEXT
Try turning off the power to the hub for 30 secs, reconnect the power and check the LED lights. If this does not fix the problem then it appears the hub is faulty.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
