USB hubs in general can really be a pain. I have had two of them which 
didn't work properly; I always thought OK, it's caused by the linux 
kernel who is very restrictive concerning device behaviour. It only 
worked well for mice and printers. I had probs with USB audio, camera 
and scanner.

One day I used one of them at a windows XP box - and got a blue screen. 
My recommendation: Avoid devices which are labeled as "For home and 
small office use only".

Meanwhile I found one which really works well in any occasion and am 
very happy with it because it behaves as desired: I don't recognize 
that it is there :) .

Best regards
