    Has the dongle been tested plugged into a powered hub?

    As we all probably know, some devices just don't like hubs, even if they're powered hubs. I've run into this with DVD players, external drives, and GPS. Wondering how this dongle will perform when plugged into a powered hub vs. directly into one of the PC's USB ports. Any ideas / experiences?

    TIA,
    Per

    Its been used from unpowered hubs and it doesn't use alot of power compared to a dvd player or hard drive. Theres no special power requirements compared to a typical bluetooth dongle.
