Wireless adapter stops working when changing USB port

    I have the Microsoft wireless network adapter (can't
    remember the model number, but it runs 8012b). It's
    working fine, but when I try to plug the wireless
    receiver into another USB port, my connectivity vanishes
    even though the computer recognizes the device in the new
    port.

    I thought USB devices should work regardless of the port
    you use on your computer. Does anyone have any idea how
    to resolve this? Should I simply reinstall the broadband
    software and start all over again?

    Thanks.
