      I loaded it up on my RPI and I plugged in my Microsoft Wireless keyboard.  It was no great surprise that it doesn’t play well.  This isn’t about that particular problem but it sets the context for the following.  I keep getting USB resets with this release.  I did not get those with other versions of OS.   The system recognizes the devices and labels them Ok but the keyboard randomly repeats typed input until stopped.   For those who will suggest USB power, I did plug in a powered USB hub and hung the wireless off it.  No difference in behavior.

      The current release 2012-08-16-wheezy-raspbian is a good basis but the latest firmware update is essetial. If you have not run rpi-update you will need to.

This utility updates the firmware and related files. If you do not have the utility installed you can get instructions from https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-update. The latest firmware seems to cure almost all my USB problems. I can now get all my sound devices, powered hubs and keyboards working without errors (except when RF gets into the USB cables). You still need to do the apt-get udate and apt-get upgrade afterwards to make sure your software is up to date.

          Thanks for the advice.  It works FB on Ubuntu on a portable.  I’ll check the firmware again but I believe it is current.  I don’t like to sound negative but I have not had good luck downloading rpi-update from the webpage.  I found it in other releases so it isn’t a problem.  I tried the 08-16 wheezy and it does not reset the USB port but my RF keyboard still is unusable due to repeat keying.

          I did an rpi-update followed by apt-get update. When I plug in the Microsoft RF keyboard all I get is a constant stream of resets on high speed USB port.

            I did an rpi-update followed by apt-get update.  When I plug in the Microsoft RF keyboard all I get is a constant stream of resets on high speed USB port.  Whatever has been touched, it changed the symptoms.
