I just recently got a new laptop. I have several USB devices (Palm, HP printer, wireless receiver for keyboard and mouse, scanner). They all work when plugged directly into the USB roots on the computer. However, they do not work properly when plugged into a USB hub. The hub is powered (I've tried three seperate hubs). Communications still happens, but they do not work properly (the Palm crashes, the printer prints garbage, the keyboard and mouse work intermittently).
Things I've tried:
-Tried them powered and unpowered
-Killing and Reinstalling all USB roots in device manager
-Used three different Hubs (2 USB2.0 hubs and 1 USB1.1 hub)
-Tried one device at a time
-Tried one device at a time after killing and reinstalling the roots
This is crazy and I'm at my wits end. I'm a pretty advanced user, so this is awfully frustrating. Can anyone help me?
