Powered USB Hub won't recognize wireless keyboard

I bought a new Logitec wireless desktop.  If I plug the receiver directly into a USB port on my laptop then everything works.  If I plug the receiver into my powered USB hub then the received fails to respond (none of the 3 LEDs light and neither mouse nor keyboard will connect).  Note that I am replacing a malfunctioning HP wireless desktop.  That old receiver is plugged into the powered USB hub, and both the mouse and keyboard connect.  Why won't the Logitec unit work on the powered hub?

nobus, documentation aside (while I have seen plenty of documentation stating to plug the receiver into a laptop port, I don't recall ever seeing a prohibition on plugging into a hub, powered or otherwise). I did fix the problem, however.  I returned the unit to the store and bought the next unit up in price range.  It is working fine.  The new receiver is a small USB-like unit. The one that didn't working was a corded receiver that was physically different in appearance.
