Working powered hub for the Raspberry Pi

A cheap 7 port Staples-branded powered hub gives my RPi problems, but a new 4 port Staples-branded powered hub works just fine.

root@raspberrypi:~# lsusb|grep -i Port
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB-2.0 4-Port HUB

Just a random data point for people to find via google ;-)

  1. Powered hubs -- random results. I have 4-port DLink hub that works but cannot power the Pi thru its power boost port and a Syba hub that can power the Pi but gets errors and is not recognized by the OS. Grrrr...
