Wireless USB issue...

  1. Bit of a problem on my hands here.
    I have a USB Netgear Wireless Adapter for my PC (WG111T) and works fine. But, if i insert my 2GB USB stick into the spare Slot, the internet connection will drop. There is no notification saying that a USB device has been disconnected or anything. When going to wireless configuration service, it still displays as connected, even though i have no network functions available anymore.
    If i disconnect, it won't reconnect. The only way to reconnect is by physically unplugging the adapater and reinserting it.

    Any ideas?

    Hopefully you have multiple USB connections on the PC.

    Use those on the BACK of the system for the HD and one on the FRONT
    for the Wireless. This will put the devices on separate controllers and
    (hopefully) stop the unloading of the wireless.

    I gots 4 at the back. None on the front but i think the back ones are on 2 seperate controllers anyway. Will try that!

    Ok, no luck with that. Back to square one . . .
