I have 6 USB ports built in to my tower. Why is it that when I unplug a data stick from a port that it causes my wireless connection, via one of the other USB ports, to go down most of the time? When this wireless disconnection happens I must unplug my wireless antenna and plug it back in to get reconnected.
If I try to right click the wireless toolbar icon and select "repair wireless connection", not only will it not be repaired, but my PCthen begins to lock up for 10 or 15 second intervals with equal intervals of proper function (less wireless connection) in between.
This has been going on since I got this PC about a year ago.
MY DRIVERS ARE UP TO DATE.
There are 6 USB ports in my tower (2 in front, 4 in back). I use one for keyboard (rear), one for wireless antenna (rear), and one for the USB data stick (front). I have tried all 4 usb ports that are on the back side, for wireless, but still the same problem. Never any keyboard problems but the wireless connection fails about 3 out of every 4 times I pull my data stick out of the port.
My friend has the same model of pc as I do. She has experienced problems with her ports as well. I think she has trouble getting the rear ports to recognize hardware and ended up having to plug her keyboard and mouse into the front side USB ports. She has a wireless card.
