Hello fellow victim of Tripplite braindead USB! There is a solution!
My blog on diagnosing the problem:
My blog on packaging the solution:
Solution on github:
Sadly, you will have to buy a USB standard conforming powered hub to
make the Tripplite work. These are suprisingly hard to find, but the
solution includes a list of known working hubs. I use a small visibly
powered USB device like a light or fan to test whether the hub really
works. The manufacturers like to break things without changing the model #.
Be sure to leave a critical review on wherever you bought it from,
hopefully Tripplite will eventually fix it.
