Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.Please do this: Remove the power cord from your hub for 2 minutes.While it is off plug the network cable from the MJ into a different port on the hub.After 2 minutes power the hub back on, allowing a minute or so for it to fully restartand then check the phone connection.

That didn't work. The magic jack would normally rotate through the blue yellow and red lights when it is working, but it is just rapid flashing blue, and when I plugged/unplugged it went to a solid red and no dial tone on phone.

Is the MagicJack plugged in directly to the wall adapter or are you using the 8 inch USB extension cable that came with it.The reason I ask is that the device can get very hot when plugged straight into the adapter and to the wall socket.

When you plug the MagicJack into a USB port on a PC does it work normally?

If your Magic Jack works plugged in to the computer but not the wall. It means that the a/c adapter is bad.You can buy those at Wal-Mart or Best Buy for a few dollars and that will fix the problem.
