I just obtained a Sprint Air Card.  When trying to use it in my Gateway laptop, it causes the system to lock up.  It is a PCICIMA card.  If I plug a USB mouse in prior to starting the connection, it doesn't lock up.  Without the USB mouse it locks after about 3-5 minutes everytime.  Also, if I plug the mouse in AFTER it locks, the external mous works but the keyboard and touchpad are still locked up.

It appears to me to be a prot conflict.  Anyone know how to fix it?
