I bought a 4 port self powered USB hub. I got the thing connected and the drivers installed themselves on my W2K machine. I started plugging things in, nothing would become detected. The USB ports on my mobo were working with my other devices, and the device manager showed nothing wrong with my "generic usb hub", but nothing would work. being desperate to figure it out, I unplugged the power from the hub. Windows detected in the device manager I had unplugged it and displayed it from being self powered to being powered by the bus.

Now everything I plug into it WORKS... why is that? I have a 400 watt system with little connected to it, so I'm not too worried about the power, but if I bought a self powered hub, I would like it to be that. I bought it at a computer show, the brand name is InterAct, both websites they have on the box and I found on google are not working...

Help, please! Thanks...

So when the hub has the A/C adaptor plugged in it doesn't work? is it the right adaptor?

Sounds like a case for warranty to me.

Correct when plugged in it is detected but doesn't work, the adapter came with it. I can live with it I guess, I paid $14 for it, I don't think the postage would be worth it...
