Dear Experts


My Windows 7 laptop connected to internet via my mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 by tethering portable Wi-Fi hotspot.


I am a technician field and I need to connect my laptop via USB port to an Ericsson MiniLink (telecom NE) node to do configuration.




Whenever I connect  the USB cable from the laptop to Ericsson my internet gets dropped, while this didn’t happen to my coworker who is using the same laptop brand as mine.


By the way the Ericsson software  that I installed on my laptop create the attached socket called : "Ericsson USBLAN adapter" on my computer's network and that would be used for the USB communication






Any advice what should I do to avoid this problem

Post the results of a ipconfig /all from your coworkers laptop and one from your laptop so we can compare ip settings.

You would do this ipconfig /all when connected to the equipment

Is the usb 2.0 or 3.0? Also try a different port moving it from front/side to rear or vice versa. Your coworker might be using 3.0 instead they are a little more robust & reliable. The power drain on the usb port is probably knocking the radio out.
