    keyboard hangs up


    Hello!
    I have Mandriva2006 installed in my notebook Toshiba S1800-100.
    I have tried to install the usb card wireless D-Link DWL-G122 B1.
    While installing the driver for the card the command modprobe rt2570 did not work, so I changed the Makefile in usr/src/linux : in the line EXTRAVERSION = -12mdkcustom I put EXTRAVERSION = -12mdk.

    Now when I start the system with the wireless card inside the usb port, the computer hangs up. If I put the card into the usb port after starting the system, the card is recognized, but the computer hangs up in about three minutes; the mouse works; the other usb port does not, when I tried to put there the memory stick it was not recognized.

    Here is the message from the syslog file that I think corresponds to the moment of hanging up:

    Sep 30 13:49:23 localhost kernel: hub 1-0:1.0: port 2 disabled by hub (EMI?), re-enabling...
    Sep 30 13:49:23 localhost kernel: usb 1-2: USB disconnect, address 2

    The memory stick alone works perfectly, without any problem.

    I hope somebody can help me.
    Thank you all in advance.

    What error did you get when you tried modprobe rt2570 ?
    After altering the EXTRAVERSION line did you recompile the kernel or not?
    Did someone tell you this change would give the result you wanted?
