Network Hub Problems

  Kilty 08:46 18 Jun 2009

I have recently bought a USB network hub, for connecting printers and an external hard drive. I am having problems with a couple of tasks when connecting different PC to this.

1) I can connect one PC to an exHDD through the hub OK. When I try to connect to the exHDD on the other machines, it connects, but when I go to My Computer to open the device, it crashes the machine.

2) I am also experiencing problems with printing ie. if I try to print, it just prints a blank sheet.

I am at a complete loss and would really appreciate some help with this. The hub is a Belkin USB Network Hub.
Thanks in advance for any help given.
