USB Hub and boot problems

Hi all.

Ok here it is, I'm using a Linksys (powered by AC) 4 port USB 2.0 hub, my PC
will power on fine with a joystick or game pad plugged into the port.
However, with a Blutooth Dongle or an iPod the boot-up process will only get
past the videocard BIOS, then stops. I have to turn off the PC unplug the
offending device and then restart.

Any ideas, it couldn't be a power issue as the hub plugged into the mains?
