2 Answers

Belkin F4U017 7 port USB hub Connected to a Windows Vista 64bit computer Windows updates are automatic When plugged into the computer, Device manager reports the hub as a "Bluetooth Radios: Broadcom Bluetooth USB with trace filter". When the hub is unplugged, this Device Manager entry also goes away. The Belkin Hub works ok with Windows XP Service Pack 3. Belkin support suggests talking with the Win 7 supplier. The hub does not function with the Windows Vista computer.

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.

    Sorry, that should say "Control Panel", not "Control Manager." I really need to learn to proofread before hitting "Submit."

When I plug my seagate free agent go portable hard drive (250 gig) into my usb, it register's that there is a device pluged into the computer (give's me the DING, that window's is famous for) but say's it...

try a different usb drive. if you are using win 7 or vista uninstall that device driver you downloaded. if its xp re install your usb drivers from the windows site just go to your device manager
win 7 vista click on computer sys prop device manager see if drive is connected hit update driver or roll back. same with usb system on win xp right click my comp. go to prop, then device manager let me know if this helps. but really important to make sure that you are plugged into a usb port in the back of the pc not thru a 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.
