Magic D-Link Hub

I heard that some MacOS X users are looking for D-Link USB hubs. Apparently the MacOS X 10.2.5 updated USB drivers have bad mojo, using a D-Link hub is a known workaround. I have one of the magic D-Link hubs, it’s been sitting in a drawer for years, but now I suddenly need an extra port so I hooked it up and everything works well.

There’s only one problem with my USB scheme, I ran out of power outlets and I had to plug the hub’s power block in to the circuit without a battery backup. My CPU has reserve power during an outage, but my USB hub would go down so I’d be unable to type or use the mouse to save my work.
