Re: [PLUG] USB devices not recognized, no power coming from the ports :(

If you have a working Bluetooth, another alternative to replacing the
wireless keyboard and mouse is to get a Bluetooth keyboard / mouse
combo.  I have a Logitech Mediaboard Pro 3, which works perfectly with
the Linux netbook that I use for my "home theater".  It works well
from the other side of the family room, much further than the range of
the regular Logitech keyboard and mouse that I also have attached to
the system and which has a range of 3-5 feet.
