My T430s will invariably BS within 5 secs ~ 5 mins of plugging in a certain wifi network USB adapter into the docking station, whereas plugged directly into the T430s, it's fine.
It's a trusty Rosewill RNX-G1W that I carried over from a T61p, and is compatible with Linux on VMWare. I've used it on XP, Vista, and now Win 7 64-bit. I have the latest driver, specific to Win 7; although the default one Win 7 self-installs when it recognizes new USB hardware works just fine, except with docking station.
Any idea why it crashes when in the docking station but not in laptop ports? Even when laptop is attached to station? I've tried both the USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports thinking it was power related, but that changes nothing.
Particulars: Win 7 64-bit, 16GB RAM, 14" screen w/ NVIDIA Optimus chip. Event log only show loss of Kernel-power causing crash.
