u/BKoster98 · 355 pointsr/raspberry_pi

Specs: Raspberry Pi Zero W running Raspbian. I have a generic case that I found at Microcenter that came with a heat sync. Samba is installed for windows file sharing. Pi VPN is also installed for access from anywhere. Two hard drive enclosures form amazon with a few hard drives I had lying around: 1TB (left) and a 320GB (right). The fan is an Arctic Breeze Mobile and I also have a USB to Ethernet adapter. Everything is connected to a 7 hub Anker powered USB hub. The fan is probably overkill but whatever, it looks cool.


Guides I followed to get it all up and running:

How To Geek: How to Turn a Raspberry Pi into a Low-Power Network Storage Device

Combining the two different hard drives to appear as one

Setting up OpenVPN with PiVPN


Edit: Added Amazon links - I didn't buy everything from amazon but this is easiest. Some things aren't the exact ones shown but close enough.


Edit Edit: Added links to the guides I followed


Edit\^3: Thank you all for the support and my first Gold! I didn't think this would get as much support as it has gotten! :)


Last Edit hopefully: I apologize I called it a "Cloud" Server. It has stirred up some debate on whether or not it is. I called it a "cloud" server because I can access it from anywhere.

A good powered USB hub

my pc is down and away from my desk and it was a pain to plug in flash drives and hard drives and whatever else i needed, i got one of these, a usb3 extension cable, and some Velcro strips, made a huge difference

u/fredhsu · 6 pointsr/oculus

Yeah. I bought this Anker USB 3 hub 7 ports with power adapter. I edited the summary to add that link.

u/mrkylematz · 5 pointsr/macsetups

I know it’s nothing special, but this is my macsetup! I work primarily on video editing projects, some Photoshopping, with some Wordpress website building sprinkled in there. But this setup is used mostly for generic browsing, YouTube/Netflix, and Plex server hosting.

So this is my setup that I’ve built over the course of 4 years.

u/shizknight · 5 pointsr/Surface

If you don't mind hooking up two cables then yeah, just get a mini-displayport to dvi adapter and a usb 3.0 hub(get a powered one) and you're good to go. Probably about 40 bucks altogether on amazon.

I, and multiple other people, have found great success using wall powered USB hubs. Zero problems with USB power or bandwith post using one of these.

u/sk9592 · 5 pointsr/PleX

The USB device limit is much higher than 16. It's usually 127 on most computers.

Have you tried using a powered USB hub? Too many passive hubs can cause their own issues.

Plug this hub directly into the motherboard. Not a front panel USB port or into another hub:


u/nuclearcaramel · 3 pointsr/oculus

> You shouldn't use USB hubs with the Rift or sensors

Actually, and surprisingly, the Anker 7 or 5 port USB3 powered hub has fixed many people's issues. For whatever reason, trying to run 2 sensors + headset through the recommended Inateck card wouldn't work for me, but plugging that Anker hub into the Inateck card, I now have 3 sensors + headset all running though them.

u/John2Nhoj · 3 pointsr/Mid_Century

Rather than damage a nice piece of furniture just to try and rig something up you might want to consider using a powered USB hub like this.


If you need the USB cable to be longer than the one included with the hub you can always swap the cable that comes with the hub with a longer one.


u/tamarockstar · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Yep. It's $36. The Anker one anyway.

u/waitisthisnametaken · 2 pointsr/rocksmith

This is a simplified explanation so please don't flame me.

Most USB controllers only provide 100ma of total power. You may have 12 USB ports but only 2 USB controllers. So if you have 12 ports with 6 ports on each controller you have 6 ports sharing 100ma of power across all 6 ports.

I don't remember the specific draw but the RS cable pulls pretty close to the full 100ma when active. (Does anyone know what the actual draw is?) If you have anything else plugged into the controller then you don't have enough power to push the cable, leading to the yellow shield error of doom.

This is where the powered USB hub comes into play.
I use this (not a referral just stating my equipment)


to power my multitude of USB devices and have never had a problem. Good hunting.

u/MisterSpak · 2 pointsr/videography

Whoops, forgot to include the link. My bad! I got this one and it works flawlessly: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B014ZQ07NE

Notably it includes a decent power supply to keep all the devices fed with power. Without that it's a crapfest of devices disconnecting and working unreliably.

u/Glutenator92 · 2 pointsr/oculus

I use this, and have no power issues, I used to have some similar issues that you are having


u/purplegreendave · 2 pointsr/nintendo

You've already been linked the guide website a few times so I won't beat a dead horse, but one thing I'll say - when you decide you want an external hard drive don't fuck around with Y cables. Get a desktop external drive or something like this.

I use that hub, it's flawless, only takes up 1 usb port on the Wii U. You can connect a GC controller adapter to it (or any other usb controller) as well, or use it as a fast charger for your phone in the living room.

u/bigg422 · 2 pointsr/XVcrosstrek

I post my solution every time I see this. My current setup is an anker usb data hub. It has one port that somehow provides power while still allowing data transfers. It charges my phone, Pixel XL, about 1 amp which is enough to keep it charging while I have android auto running with maps and music. It has worked flawlessly for me as that was one big annoyance with using AA. I bought the following and it fits perfectly in the center console. The inverter is whisper quiet too. All you see is the cable coming out of the center console. I tried finding a cigarette adapter to power the hub and gave up after buying two that didnt work because the tip is different than what it needs. Before you go looking for one that has multiple tips make sure to look at the specs as this requires more amps than any I could find provided. For the record I don't get any thing for free from anker or represent them but I like their stuff and it worked for me.

u/EnemyAce76 · 2 pointsr/oculus

I have the 2-port version of that card. I have three sensors plugged into a powered Anker USB 3.0 hub, which is plugged into one port of the card and my HMD plugged into the MOBO USB 3.0. This works well, and I've also had the HMD plugged into the hub with the sensors and that also worked fine.

u/Monkey_Priest · 2 pointsr/Android

I have been using Anker and Aukey chargers for the past few years. The few I own have all been good quality.

EDIT: I use these cables with this charger at my nightstand and this USB hub at my desk. I believe the nightstand charger does not activate fast charging due to the cables I use.

Huh, it was only $31. I thought I’d chosen one closer to $50. I hope I didn’t go too cheap.

u/FunkyMoine · 2 pointsr/PS4


buy a usb labeled "usb 3.0" or "usb3" that requires a power adaptator to be pugged into the wall plug.

like say:

it's the one i use personally, i got no problem with it whatsoever.

basically if the hub doesn't come with a power adapter , then that means it is self-powered , and that is NOT what you want.

hope this helps.

u/generalmx · 2 pointsr/techsupport

Note that USB 3.0 usually costs about the same as USB 2.0 these days, and is backwards compatible even if you didn't have USB 3.0, so why not go with another decent brand like Anker: https://www.amazon.com/Anker-7-Port-Adapter-Charging-iPhone/dp/B014ZQ07NE/

u/mike2048 · 2 pointsr/WindowsMR

I specifically meant a hub like this as that's what I use with my 10foot extension, but I like the cable in your link (nice and clean setup), that should work as well.

Decided to test these when I saw "1-4 players" on Sonic Spinball, and assumed it was played with 4 controllers, since I never tried multiplayer with that game back then. Turns out that Spinball's multiplayer is just sharing a controller.

All 4 Genesis Mini controllers (2 original + 2 RetroBit) connected to the hubs can navigate and activate menus/options/games in the game selection UI though.

u/Orksen · 2 pointsr/ipadmusic

Something like this could solve it.

u/emoney814 · 1 pointr/razer

Cool, I've got this Anker hub and it's served me great so far - never disconnects. Although it annoyingly won't charge devices plugged in if the Stealth isn't on.. seems counter intuitive since it's plugged into an outlet 24/7 (also has quite a large wall adapter...).

u/t0w1n · 1 pointr/oculus

No I did not replace the rift's HDMI cable. I simply used my 15 meter cable + the HDMI booster. The rift's HDMI is connected to the adapter.

edited the post to answer this as well.

USB 3.0 Solution:

10 Meter USB 3.0 extension cable -> USB 3.0 hub for boosting power and extending your ports -> Oculus Headset + 2 + Sensors

u/IXI_Fans · 1 pointr/ShieldAndroidTV

99% of the time USB hubs cannot handle one (let alone three) 3.5" HDDs.

Best solution: Buy/build a RAID box. You don't need NAS as the Shield/Plex is your server.
Good solution: Buy 1 big ass HDD.
OK solution: Buy a POWERED USB hub like this from Anker. You might still run into problems with disconnects and slow library boot times.

I have a few Rpi units, they are not what you are looking for. Grab a ShieldTV while on sale and have one of the most powerful units that will last a long time.


Ohh and as always, BACK UP YOUR STUFF. 2 is 1, 1 is none.

Even most powered USB hubs cant handle multiple HDDs, seriously.

u/Shimmiy · 1 pointr/oculus

Well apparently i should have researched the card further, I got the Inatek 7 port. Lucky me.

This is what i ordered for the USB hub

u/Living_Dead · 1 pointr/Pimax

How long is your extension?

I have tried multiple extensions and ran into issues with them all. Tried a 15ft active usb3, 15ft non active usb 3, 10ft non active usb3, 6ft non active usb3 and 3 ft non active usb3. All of these failed and had some issues. Either I would have issues with audio being choppy or tracking failing.

The solution to all of my issues and what let me use a 6ft usb was using a powered hub. I picked up one of these to extend the usb. I was also able to use a vive hub for the same thing.

u/Manic006 · 1 pointr/Seaofthieves

I suggest using a NVMe SSD. Switching to that has dramatically changed how fast I load in starting the game, swapping servers and black screens load times. Now if you are talking about arena load times such as the long wait to get into a match, the set up below can't fix that.


This is the set up I went to with my Xbox One X if anyone is interested:

u/samcuu · 1 pointr/buildapc

Plenty of options on Amazon. I recommend something with external power adapter, like this.

u/timotheeoz · 1 pointr/oculus

It will work but only if you are using a POWERED Usb Port on your USB 3 port: http://amzn.to/2j4l8IN This one worked fine for me. I'm also using a USB C HUB and it does the trick : http://amzn.to/2y2Rzd5

u/deadhawk12 · 1 pointr/oculus

What powered USB hub did you get? The only powered one I can find that ships to me is the Anker 3.0 7-port one, but 7 ports is fucking overkill and it's obviously trying to price-gouge. If you could post a link of your current one, that's help a lot.

u/goodpostsallday · 1 pointr/buildapc

Ah, nevermind then. I think it was just the 360 one that had the power draw problem, and even then it might have been only early models of it (I bought mine right when they started selling them.) And yeah, something like this where it has its own small power supply rather than relying on the motherboard bus to power everything.

u/OC_Rookie · 1 pointr/techsupport

Instead of one that is relying directly on the port, find one with a connector that plugs into the wall like this one

u/Ace2020boyd · 1 pointr/RetroPie

Saddly I don't have a Fry's but I was thinking about getting this one Since fitting the PI inside a NES shell I have the power to the hub hooking to a DC port extender so I can plug the power adapter.

u/Aliennatn · 1 pointr/battlestations


Except mine has a white exterior. (would have preferred the black I think)

u/RadarG · 1 pointr/CarAV

I thought about getting something like this USB hub but the design doesnt look great. Would I need a 12-5V down convertor?

u/jerrycasto · 1 pointr/buildapc

Is there a product like this but meant for external hard drives? It would be more vertical and be able to run multiple at once.

I currently have a 7 port Anker USB hub that I have 4 external drives on at any time (From multiple film projects). I'd just like something similar to a CD shelf where I can stack them vertically, and if it's also a docking station, all the better! Even a small wire rack would work, as long as the drives fit.

u/killerb255 · 1 pointr/computertechs

Other possibilities:

A) USB devices drawing too much power. How many USB devices do you have plugged in and what are they? If those USB devices don't have their own power adapter, then they're drawing power from the computer. If those devices are drawing more than what the USB bus allows, weird things happen.

To get around this, get a powered USB 3.0 hub. Anker makes some great ones, as the power bricks that come with them are usually 12V instead of 5V:


B) Flaky USB port (this can be caused by the operating system, USB bus being flaky, or a physically bad port). Try a different USB 3.0 port if your computer has one.

If you don't have another USB 3.0 port, or if the same problem happens with another 3.0 port, then you can try uninstalling and reinstalling all USB drivers.

NOTE: If you do this, your keyboard and mouse will not work until you reboot. If this is a laptop, the built-in keyboard and mouse should still work, though.

  1. Press the Windows key and "R" on your keyboard at the same time.
  2. Type in devmgmt.msc in the Open box and then press Enter.

  3. In Device Manager, scroll down to "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" and expand that.
  4. Right-click on each item under "Universal Serial Bus Controllers," one at a time, and then left-click "Uninstall." When asked if you want to do so, say yes. Repeat this step for every entry listed there until "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" is gone (or until your keyboard and mouse no longer works if it's not a laptop).
  5. Restart your computer.
u/OhShiznit54 · 1 pointr/oculus

I have this hub. I just checked with it and nothing is different. I just tried all combinations. Hub plugged into a 3.1 port on my mobo and the rift plugged into both the charging port as well as the rift plugged into any other port. Hub plugged into the 3.0 port on my renesas extension and the rift plugged into both the charging port as well as it plugged into any other port. No difference.


I guess one of my last options is to get an inatek port. Hoping best buy is open tomorrow and they have one.

u/Defiant001 · 1 pointr/hardware

u/Necro_infernus · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations

I've had great luck with the Anker brand USB hubs. There's a couple different versions, the one I linked is the 7 port one. I've personally used this one and their 14 port hub. Both have been solid for me, and I run far too many peripherals off a single hub :P.


u/kryptonitejesus · 1 pointr/laptops

This is the hub that I have that gives me trouble with my boutiques. My Sh01a is barely tolerable but with the 909 or 303 it's useless, skips beats, lags around and is just generally a pain in my butt. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014ZQ07NE?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

u/ggROer · 1 pointr/Twitch

Amazon? amazon link 1 or amazon link 2 I'd personally opt for the second one.
Now if this would work for your case I don't know, I would do some more research but I don't know why it should not work

u/Itchy_Asshole · 1 pointr/buildapc

Maybe. It depends on how the software that dock uses and how your pc handles usb monitors. one of three options. It lets the graphics card do the heavy lifting and spits it out the usb (Ideal). It ignores the graphics card and uses the integrated graphics (okay for office work), or it doesn't reliably keep an image up due to using usb for the data (pointless). I agree with /u/jamvanderloeff, get a simple usb 3.0 hub and call it a day. I suggest this and if you dont want the fast charging capabilities, get this

u/cubemonkeyslave · 1 pointr/macsetups

I'm having issues with my Anker USB 3.0 hub if anyone can provide some insight/advice:

This is the specific product I'm having issues with:

I purchased it off Amazon about 2 months ago, and it had been working fine hooked up to my rMBP up until this week. I got some new Audioengine A2+ speakers and initially was hooking them up to my computer via the USB cord that came with them, plugged into the Anker USB hub. After about a day, nothing plugged into the hub will work other than my lightning cord connected to my iphone. Other than the speakers, I had two USB peripheral recievers plugged into it (for mouse and keyboard)... also, the blue indicator lights will flash next to the USB port whenever i plug anything in (other than the lightning cord).

The hub was a little hot when all this occurred, so at first I thought maybe plugging the speakers into the hub overheated it or something? but the USB hub has its own power source, as do the speakers.

Im really just confused as to whether this was a product malfunction or some human error on my part by connecting the speakers to it. I would appreciate any comments from someone who might have an idea of whats going on? thanks!

u/bluaki · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

Is passthrough charging possible at all while also acting as a USB host (like for a flash drive or gamepad)? I see this done all the time on USB-C laptops, but I can't find any accessories that support this on the 6P or 5X.

Some examples:

  • dodocool USB-C hub with charging port: This works fine on XPS 13 and Chromebook Pixel laptops, but on Nexus phones, Android prompts me to either charge itself (can't use USB ports) or power the connected device (USB ports work but can't charge). I believe the problem here is that the hub doesn't actually power the USB ports by itself, unlike normal powered hubs, which the Nexus can't handle.
  • Plugable USB-C Docking Station: This works great with XPS/Pixel laptops. It can fast charge my Nexus phones on the host port, but the USB and Ethernet ports don't work at all. I know the HDMI port can't work because Nexuses don't support USB Alternate Mode.
  • Anker Powered USB Hub: I wish there was something like this that connects to and charges a USB-C host.
  • Superbook Kickstarter: This claims to be able to charge USB-C phones while using the USB OTG, but it's only a Kickstarter right now so I have no idea if this will actually be possible.

    Basically, no matter what accessory I use, the "lsusb" terminal command returns nothing when my phone is charging. I've tried both stock Android and Cyanogenmod 13, but not the Nougat preview.
u/lamuril · 1 pointr/oculus

These are the mounts we used, and a lot cheaper than the ones linked on the wiki: OdiySurveil (TM) Metal CCD Security Housing Mount Bracket for CCTV Camera

We also bought this 3.0 USB Anker port as I was under the impression we would need it and it was recommended on a thread. We actually ended up not needing it, but we still have it available in case we need to free up usb slots. I would double check on other threads that it does indeed work before just taking my word for it, as I haven't tested it yet personally

u/Vagrant_Charlatan · 1 pointr/oculus

I don't get how so many people are able to plug 3 (or 4!) sensors into a powered hub. I have this Anker one that was recommended in other threads and I get the USB controller bandwidth alert when I have more than 2 sensors or the HMD + 2 sensors connected. I've tried plugging the hub into the motherboard and into the Inateck card.

edit: wonder if my USB 3.0 ports are not running at full speed like in this thread, will check when I get home.

u/tangclown · -3 pointsr/oculus

Are you serious right now?

Its hilarious that you don't think this is easy.

Its 2019, zero reason to complain about lack of USB ports, when quality ones are easily obtained for cheap.
