Not sure, but I am new to the whole mining thing..

I checked last night and I am definitely plugged in to the USB 3 ports, but whenever I plug the 3rd mining stick into the Hub (also USB 3), I get 2 x xxGh/s and the third drops down to around 6Kh/s...

I don`t understand what I`m doing wrong with things...

Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

What is the third stick? Your previous post makes it sound like you have two 2Pacs and one of something else.

Ah, sorry, they are all 2PACs, just from differently named suppliers through Amazon (BitMiner Joe, ZLR Inc and I can`t find the 3rd for some reason).  It also seems that it isn`t consistent which one drops... If I remove  any of the sticks, to leave 2, then the 2 remaining return to around 10Gh/s... But they are all the same 2PAC usb stick... It`s just when I have all 3 in the hub that it happens... Plug the 3rd into another USB port, even a USB2 port, all is as it should be again...

Sounds like the common factor is your hub. It's probably weak, or at least has weak wiring for internal 5V distribution. When a new stick is plugged in, the current draw to light it up probably causes a sag on the internal 5V that trips up one of the three sticks.

Or there's some signal issue with your hub that's misbehaving with multiple USB2 devices (which these are).

Have you looked around to see if other people had problems with that model hub?

Yeah, I was probably going to go with the 10 port hub a few on here seem to be using anyway... Looks like i`ll just have to make the switch sooner Cheesy

I have the same Anker hub as you have. I cant recommend it. At least not for mining. I had trouble getting miners to work consistently and I had to replug them to get them started whenever I had to reboot. It also doens't work with Raspberry Pis.

I just bought the 10 port Sipolar hub. It just works. Both with the miners and the Pi.

yeah 10 port sipolar hub is nice, good build and quality. also is wall mountable. for 65 usd that is not bad at all.

I recently acquired a Block Erupter 49 port USB 2.0 Hub Rev 2.00 (Red board) to use with my 2PAC and Terminus pod that I purchased from sidehack as well as some miscellaneous USB miners.  Finding information about these hubs are more elusive than I imagined.  Does anyone know of a support thread or other resource to post my questions to?

1) Who was the OEM/Primary distributor for these back in the day?  Asicminer? Eyeboot?  Someone else?
2) The unit has what appears to be a 25A automotive style fuse.  Does that mean that is fused for 12V 25A?
3) 25A would only allow 500mA per port with only 500mA extra to handle startup surge.  Does that seem right?
4) Is it likely that the traces would allow more power than 500 mA if the board's total power rating is not exceeded?

More goal is to run more 2PAC and other USB miners as the price is right and I acquire them.  I should have asked what fuse was on the board since I have read about other 49 port Block Erupter hubs having 50 or 70A fuses.  Does it seem likely that I can run a few higher-power usb devices like 2PAC or Moonlanders on this board?

Thanks for any advise or pointers to better threads.

Entirely likely a noob question here but...

I have the siploar 10 port hub and 6 2Pac miners... When I had 4 in the hub, the time to payout (0.001 BTC) was 1 year, when I plugged the latest 2 in, it went up to 1 year 3 months!!!

The average usage ranges from 7GH/s - 16 GH/s on all 6, but it seem to not be helping in any way the output.

I also seemt o have no upload speeds now on the computer so wondering if I broke something or overloaded something?

Old picture but this is still what I'm running. 10 Compacs on a single 10 port A-300 hub I believe it's a relabeled https://www.amazon.com/Sipolar-USB2-0-Bitcoin-Indicator-Powered/dp/B01K4LYX7U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1486327095&sr=8-1&keywords=sipolar+A-300

RasberryPi3 is now updated with Pixel and I followed Jake36 post to install novak's cgminer-gekko-rev2.

What is your transfer throughput like? AQre all those 15 Gh/s miners? I am having issues with 6 not sending any more than 45 Gh/s on average through...
