You may have a faulty USB port/chipset on that computer. I am sure there is diagnostic software to test it just like testing a serial or parrelell port, but I do not know what it would be. May be on of the members wwho s a professional PC tech could respond. Or you could buy an after market addon USB card. Personally I do not like or trust USB. PCI for desktops or PCIMICA for noteboks is a better solution.

There are two types of USB devices. Powered and unpowered. The power load on the NIC may such that it stops working until it is reset. If you have a powered USB hub you may want ot plug into it to see it it makes a difference. The USB hub may have a more stable power source. If you have to purchase one I would rather see you purcase a PCI NIC.
The thought had crossed my mind but I have a mouse and keyboard plugged into my USB ports and they run fine, as does anything else I plug into it (printer/webcam/phone etc.)
But you're absolutely right, I'm beginning to understand the perils of USB, I think I may have to invest in a Wireless PCI Card.
