First of all, some device like USB modems may not work fine when you use usb hubs.
Secondarily, a usb hub, like any other electronic device can get faulty with no apparent reason.
After this premise I can tell you that USB hubs, and USB devices in general can stop working for setting problems, system problems, or electrostatic charges troubles.
When this happens you usually solve the problem by disconnecting USB devices, in this case the hub for ten minutes or so.
At the same time you need to disconnect the computer from power for ten minutes, if it is a laptop you will also need to remove laptop battery to drain power from computer.

If your Hub is powered with a power adapter, check that power adapter is well connected.

If it still does not work after this, then it is probably faulty.

Sir/madam,

It works with Mac OS8.1 and higher as long as the computer already has an existing and operational USB port(s). Check the power supply and the specs are 6 Volts DC, 4A. The center pin positive for the polarity.

There is no driver or software required for any of the USB hubs. The software is built into the operating system as long as the system requirements in question number one above are meet. Otherwise the hub will not work at all.

thanks
good luck

Those old Belkin hubs did have these issues because of dodgy firmware.

To be honest, they were rather slow speed anyway and you can buy better hubs in the dollar store these days.

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.

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.

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.

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.
