Bizarre wireless problem

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a USB wireless dongle, RTL8187 chipset.

I have installed the drivers and everything is working fine. sort of.


I installed it and tested it in one of my three USB ports and it worked flawlessly, but when I plug it into the port that I want to use it in (the physical location of the port is much more convenient) it doesn't get recognised at boot and I have to unplug and replug it. After replugging it works fine.


If I plug it into the other ports it gets recognised but not in the one I want to use. I really want to use this port because it is an internal port on my laptop and effectively gives me internal wifi.


Can anyone think of a reason why this may be?
