I have a Belkin F5U 021 4-port hub on my Dell PC running Win XP Pro. There is a card reader working through the hub but even though it is a powered hub it will not support my mouse, printer, scanner, or external hard drive. All these devices are powered themselves so I would like to learn why they will not run through the hub. They work fine plugged into the PC.
My question is should I try a newer/better hub. Do hubs have different power capacities? If yes to either, any recommendations?
also, is it possible that the hub is 1.0 USB rather than 2.0? Would that be the reason the listed devices cannot be used on it?
Comments and suggestions would be appreciated
