I got one of these to use with Dell p2715q 4K monitor that has a 4 port usb 3.0 hub in it.
Previously a desktop with USB3 port fed the monitor hub and I plugged my usb keyboard and mouse into two of the hub ports.

This all worked

When I put the Lindy switch between the pc and the monitor (so I could use the keyboard and mouse with a laptop on the other Lindy switch port) the keyboard and mouse were no longer found by either computer. The Lindy switch worked with other peripherals like
An external SSD but not the hub on the dell monitor

Lindy literature says it should work with a downstream hub but it doesn’t.

Can any reader help me understand why this is the case?

Thank you

Hello Xylophone,

While we have tested these switches on Hubs and found to be working. This could be an Incompatibility unfortunately.
