USB Ports lock up when I take out my Wifi USB

Question

D: I am unable to control anything USB after I take out my wifi USB while the machine is running, any ideas?

?

I know it is not the actual OS that is freezing, it is merely the USB ports.

?

I found this out when I:

?

- found out wifi usb was preventing my hackintosh to sleep

- took it out after powering the machine off

- tried sleep with the wifi usb completely out of the hackintosh, worked flawless

- ?put it back in and powered it on again, this time i take out the wifi usb and suddenly, i think the OS freezes

- i put on minecraft and spotify and sure enough they keep running, fine, but cannot control as my Keyboard is USB, and so is my mouse :/

- tried using the "radio off" function in the utility for the wifi usb, it turns it off fine, but after waking it from sleep, the usb ports lock up immediately, i think this is cuz it stops powering the wifi usb when it goes into sleep and when it wakes up, it is basically the same thing as putting it back in or supplying power to it again.

?

any fix for this?

?

?

if no fixes are available, i was thinking of buying a PCI-e wifi card for OS X... will this still work in OS X yosemite?

?

Try this kext:

IOUSBFamily.kext

IOUSBFamily.kext.zip

?

I added the GenericUSBXHCI.kext from here:

http://www.hackintoshosx.com/files/file/4284-genericusbxhci-2014-usb3-2014-1016/

I removed the?AppleUSBXHCI.kext from the plugins folder, and put GenericUSBXHCI.kext in the plugins folder.

?

It fixes several issues with USB 3.0/2.0, ?it may help.
