one little question, I've installed the new firmware from Oleg (g).
I use a laptop via w-lan and a desktop-pc via lan.
If I shutdown the desktop-pc following happens directly the power is off:

May 27 08:37:02 kernel: usb.c: USB disconnect on device 01:03.0-1 address 39
May 27 08:37:02 kernel: printer.c: usblp0: removed
May 27 08:37:02 nmbd[1487]: [2007/05/27 08:37:02, 0] nmbd/nmbd.c:sig_term(65)
May 27 08:37:02 nmbd[1487]: Got SIGTERM: going down...
May 27 08:37:03 USB storage: removed

If I start the desktop-pc the USB-Ports going connected again (directly the PC is powered on in the bios boot up phase)
This didn't happen when I connect the laptop via LAN.

Do anyone know what is incorrectly configured so this happens?

Thanks and greetings,

Hello, I encountered the same problem:
I have 2 PCs and a notebook on my network (WL500gP is the router).
I have a USB printer and a USB disk connected to the WL500gP. The disk is shared via Samba to the network.
The printer powers on automatically when I power on my PC - when the printer is powered on it's USB link goes alive and WL500gP restarts USB subsystem (some modules I guess). When I turn off my PC and the printer is without power (completely, not just turned off), the USB link is dead and WL500gP logs "USB storage removed".
From then I cannot access disk shares via Samba from the other PC and the notebook. I only see the shares.
When I open ssh session to check it on WL500gP, I see USB disk is connected and mounted and I can access the data on it. But not via Samba.
I resolved it for now by connecting the printer to the wall socket so it's still powered (even when it's turned off) so its USB link to WL500gP is alive and Samba shares work fine.
But I think there is something wrong with USB detection in the firmware.
