Windows 7 is a 64 bit OS, and still fairly new. A lot of drivers for hardware are not supporting 64 bit Operating Systems yet, maybe in the near future but right now a lot are not.
Temporarily or permanently switch to Ubuntu. I think this hub is compatible, and you can still read your Windows files in this Linux distribution.

    Just wondering how things are going and did you try Linux? I thought my solution was just for your issue, and wondering why I received such low feedback for this solution?

Does the F5U237 work with windows 8.1


It looks like Belkin stop support on certain models of Belkin, even thou you don't state the version model. But if you have a chance, visit this microsoft website which explain that it's not compatible with Windows 8.1

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.

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.

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.

Hello, I have a Belkin 2.0 USB 7-Port Hub, and having trouble with it. When i plug it into my computer, nothing happens, there is no power light and ultimately it seems as though the device is dead. ...


You first need a CAT 5 cable to go to where your internet connection is, such as a modem or another router to your hub. Then you plug another CAT 5 from the hub to your PC. You need to feed internet to the hub then your pc will recieve a connection from the hub. And of course the hub does need power. Hope that's what you were asking.

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.

Try connecting it to another port or the one on the dock since some devices can be a bit picky about what port they get plugged into.
