Could you have a look or maybe even measure the current consumption? Using
Avi's BD I found the 2-port hub of my Farallon PN895 ethernet card a real
dog in view of current consumption: 500mA. But the MP2k1 didn't stop to
deliver this current for more then 15min nor did I got an error msg.
Maybe the eMate has a smaller current budget for the cards because it got
only one PCMCIA slot? Did your eMate survive and come back to normal
operation after a certain (cooling down) time?
