This hub works perfectly; however, I was not aware at the time I purchased it that the dongle and the hub must face each other directly. My USB devices were on the other side of a wall so I thought it would work "wirelessly" through the wall, but that is not the case. Fortunately the dongle comes with a little stand that it plugs into and the stand has a long cord. I was able to string the cord through the wall and have the dongle face the hub, which is about 10ft away. The software that comes with the hub shows it is working at about 60-70% strength; however, I have not had any problems with it. I have a scanner, laser printer, and inkjet printer all plugged into the hub and each works fine!
After purchasing this hub I was unable to use it because belkin for some reason has not released a driver for Windows 7. Now I have a wireless usb hub that I paid $54.99 to look at. Buy.com should have mentioned it.
