Windows 7: USB Wireless Causing Conflict

USB Wireless Causing Conflict

Hey, I'm having a problem with using USB network adapters, I've tried three different ones and they all end up shutting off my computer every few hours. It is some form of USB conflict I can't seem to fix.

I tried switching to a PCI card, but since I happen to be in a corner in the house having the wireless adapter on top of the desk is the only thing that seems to get me any sort of signal. But the USB Adapters all persist in shutting me down. Just a hard-shutoff with no warning, all of a sudden bam, its just powered off.

Right now I'm using a Belkin N+ USB Adapter. Any ideas on how to correct this issue? I have several other USB devices plugged in as well: KVM switch, external hard drive, webcam, mouse+keyboard.

It appears that the USB Wireless adapter doesn't have an updated driver: Windows 7 Compatibility Center search results - Belkin N+ USB Adapter. You can check with the manufacturer as well to see if one is on the way!
