However, while I was searchin for usb drivers for my board, I happen to chance upon this :
VIA USB 2.0 Host Controller Driver Package (Release note)
a) VIA USB 2.0 Host Controller Driver -
1. Only USB wakeup from S3 (by mouse or keyboard) is supported. Of course,
your system BIOS should support/enable this function First.
2. If some specific USB devices are plugged in, you may NOT Hibernate or
Shutdown the system.
3. If you connect a USB 2.0 hub to the root hub and continue to plug some
USB devices into this hub. The system would be hung with some specific
USB devices or these USB devices might not be recognized.
This release note was from biostar itself in the usb 2.0 driver installation pack. Biostar did not solve this problem, perhaps they couldn't be bothered with an old piece of board. Can anyone help me solve this system hang problem? Now I olny have the linksys adapter connected to my usb port. the other usb ports are left unattached to other devices.
I'm using Biostar M7VIQ mainboard, Athlon XP 2000+, 512 ddr ram, Windows XP sp2
