Yes, both hubs are externally powered. Here are the links:http://tinyurl.com/n7vofhttp://tinyurl.com/f86fz
Belkin emailed me back yesterday and said to try connecting the hubs directly into the wall. I tried this, the hubs reset, and it worked for about 30 seconds. It seems that whatever device is currently being used takes over the hub. For example, my wireless keyboard will lag for about 10 seconds before it kicks into full-speed mode. My ShuttleXpress video editing tool won't work until I've clicked it about 15 times. My tablet will work normally until I use another device, then it will just function as a mouse - no pressure sensitivity and the expresskeys quit working (this one never comes back to full operation). It's quiet annoying. The rear two USB ports on my 7405gx are loose and don't function to well, so I don't use them. So either the Belkin hubs are really crappy, my peripherals don't play nice, or the 7405gx's internal USB controller is weak. I am going to test the hubs on some other computers when I get the chance. Honestly, I'm hoping that it's just the Gateway's USB controller because I want to upgrade to a 13" MacBook which only has two USB ports, which means I would absolutely need
good, working USB hubs to function in life
