Overview

Here’s a must-have accessory for your MacBook. This portable USB 3.0 hub merges your USB peripheral and RJ45 network connections into a single, convenient combination hub. It gives you two vital connection types that are often missing from modern, port-limited laptops.

This silver, sandblasted USB hub matches the finish of your MacBook, and because it features a solid-aluminum casing that’s both lightweight and rugged, it’s perfect for travel usage. It also integrates a lengthier, 27 cm (10.5 in) cable, so you have the flexibility to place the hub, your devices, and your network connection, exactly where you need them.

Looks great while expanding your connectivity

This high-quality, Apple style USB hub features a Gigabit Ethernet port, giving you an easy way to expand your MacBook connectivity. And because the hub integrates a Gigabit Ethernet port, you can add wired network connectivity to your laptop in a location where Wi-Fi® is unreliable or unavailable.

The hub’s built-in USB cable has sufficient length to reach your laptop’s USB 3.0 port, regardless of where the port is located.

Plus, the stylish hub features three USB 3.0 (also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1) ports in a compact housing. And, its silver, sandblasted finish provides a unique and trendy look when compared to traditional hubs.

Portable and rugged

The hub features a rugged yet lightweight housing, so there’s no need to sacrifice dependability for portability. With its compact, USB-powered design and a built-in USB cable, you can tuck the combination hub neatly into your travel bag, and avoid the nuisance of carrying multiple separate adapters.

This USB 3.0 hub is perfect for travel, such as back-and-forth trips from home to office. Plus, the compact hub takes up minimal space on a desk, so you can use it in hot-desk or BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environments.

Save money and time

This bus-powered USB hub installs quickly and easily, and it’s natively supported in Windows®, Mac, and Chrome OS™, with no additional drivers or software required. You can also avoid the nuisance and cost of purchasing new devices by using the USB 3.0 hub plus GbE with your current USB 2.0 and 1.x devices.

The ST3300G3UA is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

Connect to a wired, Gigabit network where Wi-Fi is limited or unavailable, such as in boardrooms, classrooms, or hotels

Add extra USB 3.0 ports and connect your peripherals at home, in the office, or while traveling

Look trendy and contemporary, and upgrade the connection capabilities of your MacBook, Ultrabook, or laptop

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Troubleshooting

If your ST3300G3UA is connected to a computer running macOS, and the network connection stops working after you wake the computer up from sleep mode, you can temporarily resolve this issue by unplugging and plugging the ST3300G3UA back into your computer.  This will resolve the problem until your computer is put to sleep again.

To permanently resolve this issue, make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest macOS drivers from the ST3300G3UA product page.  If these latest drivers do not resolve your issue, check to see if your ST3300G3UA is revision B.  This is marked on the ST3300G3UA's ID label and box.  If your ST3300G3UA is not revision B, contact StarTech.com support for further assistance.

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.

If the USB device does not work after your computer has been in extended hibernation, it is likely that Windows has automatically turned off the USB Root hub to save power.
