    hi,
    i have a shuttle xpc ST61G4 and i just got a cheapy HP printer (PSC
    1215), and it works fine. but when i turn it on, it sometimes locks
    out the system for about 7 seconds, and my wireless device may
    disappear from the system (internal usb). so i lose my internet
    connection and sometimes have to do a scan for hardware changes to get
    the device back. the behaviour is sporadic so it's hard to pin down.
    does anyone know how to avoid this?
    i looked at the properties of my 3 usb hubs, one of them has full power
    usage from the internal card reader, the other has full power usage
    from the wifi card, and the other has 400ma to spare with the printer
    and mouse attached to it. so i presume the usb hub with the printer
    isn't overloaded. i checked the cabling and it seems ok.

    thanks for any tips
    tim
