How long are USB hubs supposed to last? I have one that I run my printer and mouse through, and both devices started acting squirrelly recently. Plugged them directly into my computer (Toshiba Win 7 laptop) and they work just fine.
The exact same thing happened about two years ago, and I replaced the then two-year old hub with the one I have now. And now, two years later, it seems to be happening again. Changing ports on the hub doesn’t seem to help.
General Question: anyone else experience two year lifespans on a basic USB hub? Should they last longer than that? Or is this all you can expect out of such a device?
Details: 7-port, powered, USB 2.0 hub, “Inland” brand. Don’t remember the brand of the previous one. Thanks for any help!!
