Flaky USB devices in FreeBSD, also NetBSD, are not limited to wireless adapters.

I get console messages about keyboard and mouse losing connection, when in many 
cases, mouse and keyboard are still working.

Now I think FreeBSD is topping NetBSD for flaky USB connections.

NetBSD has no support for Hiro H50191 wireless adapter, device rsu, but 
supports Atheros on-motherboard (quasi-)USB AR9271.

Most of the time, NetBSD fails to load firmware for this Atheros AR9271, error 
35, not allowing enough time, but sometimes the firmware loads.

Sorry to be late in responding, losing connection slows me down.

I've been updating FreeBSD-current and stable/10 from source, both amd64 and 
i386, whenever I see a change in rsu or re driver.

On MSI Z77 MPOWER motherboard, of open-source OSes, only Linux and NetBSD 
connect with Realtek 8111E/8168 Ethernet.

DragonFly newest release, 3.8.0, and OpenBSD 5.4, have same bug as does FreeBSD 
with this Ethernet.

I've also been busy installing NetBSD-current amd64 and i386, now on hard drive 
on other computer.

Now I wish I had installed NetBSD-current amd64 and i386 on this computer with 
MSI Z77 MPOWER motherboard before FreeBSD to have something to fall back on 
when FreeBSD misbehaves with Hiro H50191.

Remember, I needed to update NetBSD-current amd64 and packages, with 
subversion, using wired Ethernet, to checkout and update FreeBSD src, ports and 
doc trees; also had to buy a new wireless router when the Netgear router 
stopped working.
