Lost wireless connection when unplugging external hard disk?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by NewsGroupQuestion, Jan 17, 2005.

  1. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction...

    I have 5 USB ports, 4 at the back, 1 at the front.

    I have my wireless adapter plugged into one at the back.

    I have an external hard disk plugged in at the front.

    When I disconnect the hard disk, I lose my wireless connection. A few
    minutes later, the wireless connection re-establishes.

    Is this a known issue? It's a niggle more than anything. Is there a 'fix'?
