    When I bought it, everything was working fine.
    But using it sparsely, it is now not working anymore with different systems:
    Debian, kernel 3.14, 4.1 and 4.3.
    The problem is always the same, it disconnects randomly when used.

    The Syslog looks almost good when pluging in…

    It is disconnected from the kernel point of view, and the reloaded and redisconnected,….

    I need to unplug it quickly otherwise, it may reboot my system…
