Thanks for the pointer! It looks like I need to try a powered
laptop# usbdevs -v
addr 1: full speed, self powered, config 1, UHCI root hub(0x0000),
Intel(0x0000), rev 1.00
port 1 addr 2: full speed, power 300 mA, config 1, USB 2.0 Ethernet
adapter(0x1040), BayNETGEAR(0x0846), rev 0.01
port 2 powered
I'll scrounge up a powered one and report back.
