yes, it happens with my 4521 sometimes. i switched to a stronger power
supply like i was told, now i am using a device labeled as capable of
supplying 12-22 volts at 45 watts max. this should be enough for a 4521
plus one wireless pcmcia card (a senao card i bought from netgate this
spring, i don't have the exact details at hand) i think?
it is pretty annoying because it really happens randomly. sometimes, the
devices are there after boot, sometimes not. when they are there,
everything works perfectly as long as the box remains powered on.
could my board be broken? what else could be wrong?
