I just tried the N10 on my Windows PC.  In the configuration for the 
adapter I turned off allowing Windows to turn off the adapter if it's 
not in use.  Also, it went dead with a message that there wasn't enough 
power for the USB hub so I connected power to the Belkin hub.  So far 
it's working ok.  I did have the power connected to the hub when it was 
on the BBB.  Also, I forgot to mention my home router is a Verizon 
Actiontech, M1424WR with other wireless devices running ok.
