Just thought i would post a workaround, fix, solution for this until ms does possibly.... although it may be a belkin problem to fix Hardware affected:
Belkin Network USB Hub F5l009 Situation:
Installing and getting usb network hub to communicate Problem:
Constant disconnecting of drives and Control Center crash/hang on exit. Under Windows 7 the drives/printer would connect, but then upon initial scan of a device it would close the connection, losing it completely, but still showing the device and devices attached to hub available on the network, not disabled like i have seen it show before when a problem with a device on the hub would occur. Resolution(s):
First running both the install software under vista comp and the actual connect.exe (Control Center) under vista comp after install before initial run. Secondly, under XP this device worked fine without having to manually port forward the hub thru the router. Whether a flaw with the software under XP or the utilization of Upnp under XP (which i use on xp and network).
Quick solve: Make sure to forward the ports manually, both tcp and udp. Also putting the device on DMZ will not work... tried and tested all i could think of
