Windows 7: USB Hub

windows ultimate x 32

I purchased a generic 6 port usb hub a couple of weeks ago & can't get windows 7 32 bit to see it.The guy that sold me this thing said that windows 7 would furnish drivers but it won't even see the hub.After many Googles to find drivers I have not found any.If anyone can
furnish info on finding drivers or where I might purchase a hub that comes with drivers I would be much appreciative.

You don't need drivers for a USB hub, Windows has them already included in its driver store. The reason windows isn't installing them is that it hasn't detected the HUB. I would say that either the HUB is defective or the cable is defective. Swap cables and or try it on another PC.

alphanumeric Is correct, you do not need drivers for the hub as windows will install them with default windows drivers, you will also not see hub in windows (except for Device manager)
Your hub may require additional power from an external mains though your hub should have come with this already but its not always required.
once you have plugged in your hub have you attached any other USB device to the hub to see if the USB devices are being detected by window? it may well be that windows was quick enough to initialize the hub without you actually seen it on screen
