Have just has to replace a faulty (cheap) USB hub. New one is a Belkin 4 port hub.
Having an annoying glitch with the printer that connects through this to the laptop.
The printer appears faded out in Control Panel, and will only work if I unplug the USB going into PC. Despite the fact that the printer def installed the found new hardware message comes up and reinstalls (but also comes up with not having Administrator rights to run the programme).
The printer then works.
I had no problems with the previous Hub.
Is solution to uninstall the printer, and then reinstall obviously using the hub connection?
(running XP Pro and the printer is a HP laserjet 2605dn)
Hi there, The only thing I can think of is that you unplug your 4 way usb hub, and plug the printer directly into your computer. I've had similar problems in the past and worked through a trial and error system to solve the problems. Mostly they've worked. Give it a go.
