    I have a USB Linksys Wireless-G adapter that has been plugged into a USB port on the back of my Dell PC for a couple of years. Works great. When I use another USB plug on the front of the PC to connect a new Ipod Shuffle the wireless adapter becomes disabled. The Ipod appears to charge fine and Itunes starts up as expected. If I disconnect the Shuffle and try to enable the wireless adapter it fails. Only after disconnecting the Shuffle and rebooting the PC will the wireless adapter become enabled again. I've had several Ipod Nano's connected to the same USB port as the Shuffle with no problems at all. I'm trying to look into the IRQ settings. Does anyone have any ideas on this one?
