I got a USB hub, plugged it and my devices are not recognized


Hello everyone,

I need help, it's the SECOND usb hub I get and again doesn't work, I don't know that much about computers, and I'm getting very frustrated.

Does the hub require any installation or drivers????

I plug it and when I restart the computer is like the devices have been umplugged....???

Please anyone that can help I would be very grateful.

Thanks in advance.

One is "hama" and the other one is "case logic"

What device are you plugging into the USB hub? You might need an external power source for the USB hub if you are plugging in, say, an external hard drive. The device cannot draw that much power from the USB hub.

You can also type, as root, lsusb. See if the usb device is noticed in the list.

Well is the USB hub the Texas Instruments, Inc? Or is that something else? Maybe the hub is broken? Have you tried plugging it into other computers and see if it works? Have you tried plugging in a smaller device like USB flash drive? You sure your USB ports, in general, work? Try plugging your devices directly into your computer's USB and not through the hub? Does it work?

Come on, use your case logic and not your hama! Just kidding.

I got a usb hub plugged in

Does it not worked at all or does it works with a delay
I remember from my old computer that it takes a longer time before the devices connected on hub were working if you compare with the standard USB
port.


all the best

thank you for replying.

Well, the two ports are working fine, I have two devices (an external hard disk and a ADSL connection) working on them fine. i guess the texas in. is the ADSL then.

I need to install more devices, like a printer and a card reader, so I got this hub, (both) I unplug one of the devices, I leave the other, I plug the hub and then in one of the four new entries I plug the HD). Then I swich it on and no HD on the screen.

What am I doing terribly wrong?

Today I went to a computer shop next to my home to ask for some help and the guy after seeing the box just said "so why don't you use the W XP?"

Well, I could figure that one by myself without asking around, this guy is not exactly a genius is he.....

Anwyay, again any help is very welcome.

Thank u.

I had to go through two or three brands of Hub before I found one that worked well (windows or Linux). Not generally a big fan of Dlink but their USB dub-h4 hub works well.
