Hi to all who can help:

Just bought Belkin network usb hub ( to link some of my ext hard disks. Installed the belkin program and on restart, it prompted me that SXUPTP Driver is missing and asked me to re install. and all this while it sits in the system extension folder. How do i link this file ? I am currently on Tiger, osx 10.4.10.

I downloaded the latest driver for 10.4 from Belkin support website ( but it prompts me the same missing driver file. Out of curiousity and desperation, i downloaded the driver for Leopard 10.5 as well ( even though i am on tiger, guess how desperate i was
)and installed it . It too prompted for the missing SXUPTP driver file? What is going on?

Right now, the hub just sits and looks pretty , doing nothing.

Can anyone shed some light and how do some of the mac users get this hub to work with their machines?

Thanks in adavnce!!!!

    Your best bet would be to contact Belkin since they write the drivers. You're probably already familiar with the Support area but here's the link just in case.

    You can contact them via e-mail and phone both.

    Go to Google and copy/paste this into the Search field: customer reviews for belkin usb hub
    You're not alone in problems with this driver.

    that's exactly what I did : running kextstat (Utilities/ and checked all non apple/mac apps. I found iAntiVirus as candidate and de-installed it (even I did not have this app actually active). All went fine after that, no SXUPTP driver problems with BELKIN USB hub anymore.

    Hi Ian,
    Please see
    I think this may answer you question, I did some digging and found out all is not equal between the Belkin US site and the Uk site.
    Download the Pre-release version for 10.5x from the UK site
    I was on the verge of taking mine back this morning , thought I'd give it one last shot, just installed as normal no safe boot no nothing in terminal, just install under normal user, and voila it works.
    However if your using a laptop don't shut the case while the drives are connected as this just crashes not only the belkin control centre software it crashes your whole system so big big no no!!

    Hope this helps...let me know if it resolves your problem

    Just to update my previous post about the Belkin drivers, I used them once then they kept crashing out...unstable as **** ...deleted the app ...boxed it back up and took it back ...rubbish.

    So not impressed ...moved onto a Time Capsule .....
