I bought a Belkin 4 port USB powered hub, when I connected it yesterday there were no problems, including the printer & scanner connections. This morning when I booted the computer I lost the connections to both the sacnner & printer, although I can get my camera to work, nor does it seem to like being connected to my ADSL Modem. Any advice would be helpful.
sam2004, Thanks for the phone number I may yet need it. Stuarti, There are no problems shown in device manager & I have just tried the printer & scanner again & they are both OK. This morning there was a problem indicated in the device manager. I don't understand what has changed.
I take on board what you say, & have the modem plugged into the comp. The strange thing is that even though it was directly into the computer I lost the connection this morning until I played about with it.I have 4 usb ports on my computer & they all seem OK.
I am using it powered, I have rebooted about 3 times now with no problem, I can't say it is cured, but everything seems OK. I will leave the thread open for a while in case of a sudden relapse. Thanks for all your responses.
