Thanks for the tip drgeoff, I'll give it a try. I did it the lazy way before, and bought a preloaded card, but it's probably better to do the job myself!! I don't think the problem should have been with the power supply to the Pi though, because it was independently powered. Here's a thought though. When I googled images of the D-Link 4 port USB DUB-H4 hub, there are two distinct sorts. There is a small black plastic case model (which is the type I have), and a larger metal bodied model. If D-Link introduced a later model with slightly different characteristics, perhaps that could explain differences in compatibility?drgeoff wrote:It is thought by many that there are some problems with the USB driver.......... ..........The most recent OS distributions may behave better for you - try the Raspbian wheezy which is now the recommended 'starter'.
Actually, I think that link shows that no significant progress has been made. Instead it shows what a huge mess the situation with USB and Ethernet on the Pi really is right now. There doesn't appear to be any kind of solution or workaround for this that doesn't involve hardware modification and I think there's a strong possibility that there never will be.drgeoff wrote:It is thought by many that there are some problems with the USB driver. These can be confused with or exacerbated by poor power supplies to the RPi and hubs that (wrongly) feed power from themselves to the RPi's USB socket (not the micro-USB socket). There are many posts on these forums about the behaviour you are seeing. While this is taking much longer to rectify than many would like there is some evidence that progress is being made (eg https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/29).
Unfortunately I think that's very unlikely.The most recent OS distributions may behave better for you - try the Raspbian wheezy which is now the recommended 'starter'.

I'm probably going to shelve my pi now until there's a new usb driver to test.
