I remember seeing the same thing in the Asus WL-500g forums on
www.chupa.nl - I'll see if I can dig up the resolution of that
problem from that forum.
Can you post the syslog messages? Does it look anything like these?:
We might have to buy Oleg from the WL-500g forums an NSLU2 ;-)

The 1.1 controller is the Intel CPU chip. The two 2.0 controllers
are on the external USB controller chip. The 1.1 controller is
probably not pinned out (like on the Linksys WRT54G series). The 2.0
controller chip probably runs off the external PCI bus.
