You're saying that you can get the smallest sprocket but not the largest sprocket...or the largest sprocket but not the smallest sprocket...but not the whole range? This suggests an issue with the total width of the cassette and not with the hub itself...unless I'm seriously misunderstanding what you're saying.

I do think some pictures would be very instructive here.
