Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a USB hub, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • USB A-to-B cable

  • Computer USB port

  • USB peripheral(s)

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the USB cable and USB peripheral(s) in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different USB cable, USB port, and USB peripheral in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the hub, make sure that you do the following:

  • If a power adapter is included, provide power to the USB hub.

  • Attach a USB peripheral. The USB hub will not appear in any hardware listings on your system, but USB devices do appear when they are connected.

  • Install the drivers for the USB peripheral.

  • Install the latest drivers for the USB controller and motherboard chipset.

Note: No drivers or software are required for the USB hub to work with your operating system. The USB hub works independently of software and works with any operating system.

When testing your USB peripherals, make sure that you do the following:

  • If required, attach external power.

  • Confirm that the peripheral works on a standard USB port.

If the USB peripheral(s) can be detected on a standard USB port and not on the hub, do the following:

  • Use a new USB A-to-B cable.

  • Test your setup using basic USB peripherals, such as a keyboard or mouse.

  • Test using another USB port.

Before You Buy

It is possible to use some USB hubs without a power supply, however, doing so may prevent the USB hub or certain high-power USB peripherals from operating.  It is always recommended to use an included power supply with a USB hub when possible.

When a power adapter is not used on a hub that comes with a power adapter, power is drawn from the USB port on the computer and then divided between the ports on the hub. This reduces the power delivery to individual ports and high-powered USB peripherals, such as external hard drives, may not start.

On USB hubs that can use a power adapter, more power can be supplied to USB ports than what is possible with a single USB port.

If your USB peripherals require power adapters, they probably do not require power from the USB port and can be used on a USB hub without a power adapter. With USB peripherals that use power adapters, the USB ports on the hub are only used for data transfer and do not draw power from the hub.

USB peripherals that require low power (for example, keyboards and mice) can be used on hubs without a power adapter, in conjunction with other low-power USB peripherals. In this case, power is drawn from the computer's USB port, as described above.

USB-C is a type of USB connector that is capable of supporting the following:

  • Data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps, if you use USB 3.1.
  • Bi-directional power delivery up to 100W, if both the USB host connection and the device support it.
  • Alternate modes, which deliver different types of data at different speeds. For example, DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode).

If using Thunderbolt 3 over USB-C, the connection is capable of additional features. For example, Thunderbolt 3 is capable of 40Gbps of total bandwidth. For more information, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/thunderbolt-3-port-capabilities.

Not all USB-C ports or devices are capable of supporting all of the features listed above, or all of the features at the maximum capabilities. If you require a specific USB-C feature, your USB host connection, cables, and device must all support the feature that you require. For more information about whether your components support specific USB-C features, refer to the information provided by the manufacturers.

excellent multi-port usb hub

By: macphot1970 - 12/11/2017
This is a great little USB 3.0 hub featuring 5 USB-A and 2USB-c Connections. I found the construction of the hub to be excellent and I like the fact it is metal and has some weight to it as it helps keep the hub in place when using it on a desk with multiple devices plugged in. The addition of the 2 USB-C ports is a very nice option to have. The power connection has adapters for other counties if you live outside of north america. overall this is an excellent product will nothing to dislike i received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

Plug and play

By: morty - 12/19/2017
This 'Plug and play type' product is very handy. I have used it thoroughly putting all the devices - Headphones, USB Keyboard, Optical Mouse, USB 3.0, USB 2.0 (older usb drives), Mobile USB charging etc - all ports working fine and I can see the transfers were quick. But, occasionally there is a scenario where it does not recognize the plugged in devices. For example - I have all the devices say - Keyboard, Optical Mouse etc and I plugged back in the USB-C to my laptop, it would not recognize, sometimes I need to plug it out and plug in back or Switch ON/OFF once to get those recognized back. Other than that, overall performance of this hub is good to me. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

If you use USB Keys a LOT

By: Andrew11 - 01/04/2018
This is an excellent product for the power-USB user. It gets you USB ports anywhere you need them, can mount it to a desk or wall, though the included rubber strips do a pretty decent job keeping it in-place on a desk. 5 USB Ports are upright (where I think they should be) and 2 USB-C ports on the end, with lights beside each port telling you which ones are active, and which can be removed (after ejection). I might suggest some cable-wrap to clean up the USB+power cables a bit; it’s a simple thing but makes a big difference how it looks. A very impressive product!

MUST have accessory for expansion

By: Nick_100 - 04/15/2018
First, the negative: Had to mount it, since the hub is all metal and slides around too easy! Still.... I love this thing. It's like adding one USB-C (since one gets used to connect the hub), and 5 USB-A to your computer. No drivers, no compatibility isssues. The power switch is a great add-on for disabling peripherals, and the always-on port is perfect for charging phone/watch/tablet! It's a permanent part of my desk now, and I bought ahave one in my backpack! I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.
