Medion MD86097 Remote Hub

Post by msteggalls »

Back in 2010 the Medion MD86097 Remote Hub was on offer in Aldi stores. I purchase one, which I been using since then. Except yesterday I couldn't access the Toppy. This would happen from time to time, and the hub just needed rebooting, but not this time. No lights on, appears to be dead.

Anyone out there who also bought one that no longer uses it and willing to sell on? Or is there an equivalent option (other than directly connecting a Laptop)?

Never heard of this but had a quick look at the manual.

No lights implies no power - psu in the device?
Or it could just be that the wall plug converter has died (one can probably get something of a similar spec on ebay).

andyfras might be worth contacting andyfras to see if he can get it working again

I have one of these devices, so if it is not fixed by the psu change, come back and I'll try to find it. Great little thing in its time, but a little slow by current standards.
