I just buy yesterday the Belkin USB 2.0 and FireWire 6-Port Hub for Mac mini (F5U507) - i have the Macmini PowerPC G4 1.42GHz 1G ram.

when i connect my hub..the keyboard and the mouse are freezing..so i try to connect them trought the hub nothing happen !?!?!?
actually the only thing the hub link is my ipod via firewire.... my external hard drive lacie 500gig (usb2) can't be read ..

Yanick,

If the FireWire connection is functioning correctly, but the USB is not, then it sounds like your new Belkin hub is faulty. Before you return it to the retailer, you might want to connect it to another computer to see if this problem can be replicated on a different machine. If you have the same problem with another computer, the hub is definitely defective.

John.

sorry to bump this old topic.

im thinking of getting one of these belkin 6-port usb/fire hubs on the cheap (there is a 7-port out now, but i cant find it online in the uk.)

i want to know if i can use it to enable booting from a usb external hard drive on a g4 ppc 1.42ghz mac mini, if the hub is connected to the mini via firewire.
