Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So at work, I have a USB Hub. It connects about 4 devices together. Total bandwidth is probably a few megabytes per second.
The problem is that these devices seem to freeze... frequently. I have tried several models of Hubs and they all freeze. The computer seems to be fine and doesn't have these problem when the individual devices are directly connected. Data communication will continue for days with the direct USB connections.
Are Hubs really this shitty? Are there any Hubs designed to be robust? Perhaps a watchdog timer or an external, software controllable reset?
