    A USB hub shouldn't require any driver... but OK just about all vendors have whatever driver you need on their website... but OK they don't. Go to a friend, a library blah-blah copy the CD to a thumbdrive and... u take it from there.

    It's not just a hub - which is probably why it needs the driver.

    Is there a manufacturer name on the box that came with it? Check their website.

    yeah the USB hub works fine, it's the network port that doesn't work without driver.

    I can't find the manufacturer. I've ben searching online for the driver but can't find it.

    I have a cheap usb ethernet, and this kind of works as the driver:


    Maybe give that a try? For whatever reason I get random kernel panics when initializing it though, so I'm not sure how well it works with 10.8.1. Stability is unchanged when it's not in use, so I don't believe it should cause issues.

    Of course it's your risk, not mine, you do this of your own free will, blah blah.

    Thanks a lot. I will give it a go.

    Update: too bad, that didn't work.

    The first driver listed?

    The cd you didn't get lists "AX887772*", so googling that led to that driver. Give that a try.
    Let us know how well that works, becuase I think it'd be cool to have something like that as a dock.

    Good call. That should be the driver. Unfortunately it still doesn't work.

    I'm trying trouble shooting. The USB hub is listed differently than indicated in the manual.
