I have yet to find one that didn't work, unless the hub itself was 
broken. I have seen problems with bus-powered hubs and some USB 
ports, but that was because the hub reported that it needed more 
power then the port was rated for. (Not all USB ports have the same 
amount of power available.) I have also seen problems with a 
self-powered only hub that didn't have the power supply plugged in, 
but plugging it in fixed the problem.

What is happening when you plug the hub in? Is it a bus-powered or 
self-powered hub? Does it show up when you run lsusb?
