http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm reinstalling a system which has attached to it an old Linkys wusb54g v.4 USB wireless adapter. After the install I can "connect" to the network, but then the network manager freezes at "Setting network address!" A few moments later, maybe 30 seconds or a minute, the system disconnects and then retrys. It repeates this forever, never connecting. During this process the following message is printed on pty0: "phy0 -> rt2500usb_set_device_state: Error failed to enter state 3 (-16)" "phy0 -> rt2x00lib_autowakeup: Error device failed to wake up&quot (Hardware)
