i have had the same frustrations with the serial belkin hub. it works
only occasionally in 9.2, and the regular usb hub locks up my system
frequently as well. i too have thrown mine to the good riddence pile.
i found the cheaper route to be the purchase of the wireless card and
driver. it costs about the same as the keyspan and works great! thanks
to way wong for the demo and use of his card to try at the last LAnug
meeting. i got my card this past sat and it's worked great!
