Windows 7: USB 3.0 HUB speed problem

USB 3.0 HUB speed problem

I just purchased a Ultra Aluminous 4 port USB 3.0 Hub.

My computer has been relocated and it is now very difficult to get at my 3.0 ports on the back of the machine so I thought this would make life easy.

My latest Renesas USB 3.0 driver software sees the new hub as USB 2.0 and installs that driver. I have 2 USB 3.0 drives that work fine if plugged directly into the back ports, but if I plug them into my new hub I get a message telling me they can go faster.

Is there a way to manually install the USB 3.0 hub driver? I believe the Renesas driver package includes it. I tried using device manager manual install but it does not list Renesas drivers when it lists all available drivers.

I have tried removing and re-installing the latest driver software with no luck.

Thanks

If this is not a self-powered hub, there may be a problem with the devices starving from power.

Have you looked at the manual or visited the manufacturer's website to see what they have to say about your issue. That might help. Also as whs hinted, if the item came with a power cord, is it hooked up?

I have the hub plugged in to a live outlet.

No manual came with it, but I will do some digging around on the company website.

I searched Ultra's website and had no luck. I also did several web searches and came up empty.

But as things are it definitely looks like a driver problem. I would call the company and ask them what they suggest.

Out of curiosity are you using the same cables? Are the cables USB 3.0 compliant?
