We’ve just started deploying some of the AnywhereUSB devices and I’ve noticed an issue that’s come up twice now.
When I reboot the machine that is connected to the AnywhereUSB device it will come back up and be connected to it still… great. The problem is that some usb devices won’t automatically reconnect to that machine. I must physically disconnect and reconnect the usb device to the AnywhereUSB and then it pops into the Device Manager.
Any ideas? I’ve see this happen now with an older 128mb flash drive and now a usb modem.
My best guess is that the USB modem is causing this problem. As you may know, most USB modems are incompatible with the AnywhereUSB, and trying to use incompatible devices can cause various problems, such as what you’re running into.
With that being said:
I’m curious if your modem ever works, when going through the AnywhereUSB. If so, what is the make and model?
About the issue-at-hand, disconnect the USB modem, power cycle the AnywhereUSB, reboot the computer (leaving only the flash drive connected to the AnywhereUSB) and let me know if you continue seeing this problem.
