Yes.  If I boot the main computer in windows as I did to download one of 
my mail accts. yesterday, it is on the modem with the USB cable abd at 
the same time this unit, my test bed was being used to send replys to 
these inquiry's.  At the same time my wife was on line preparing to 
teach today's lesson to the children and she plugs into the USB on her 
unit with the HPNA.  The problem only occurs when I boot the main unit 
in Ubuntu and then the only computer that looses the router/modem is the 
main computer.  the test bed, this unit, and my wifes unit both 
communicate and connect to the web.  That puts her unit on the HPNA and 
this one on the LAN Card connected via the Cat5.
