Yup. That does sound familiar. I think part of the problem is that there are a lot of cheap USB components out there and there's no easy way to tell them apart. Not to mention that we leave them around the house unlabelled for way too long. :)

My own introduction to Linux (way back in Ubuntu 7.10 times) was nearly derailed by an unreliable port on a cheap, unmanaged switch. I just couldn't get all of my thin clients booting from an LTSP server and I was just about ready to throw the whole Linux thing into a dumpster. That WOULD have been the wrong thing to do! :)
