Logitech USB Wireless Mouse not working anymore


I just installed a new piece of hardware, Iogear USB 2.0 PCI card, GIC251U, and now my mouse does not work when it is plugged into this card. The mouse works when plugged into a different slot in my computer.

Here is my lspci: ( I think the card is listed second to last)
root@darkstar:~# lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 82850 850 (Tehama) Chipset Host Bridge (MCH) (rev 04)

02:0a.0 Communication controller: Conexant HCF 56k Data/Fax/Voice/Spkp Modem (rev 08)

Should I be able to use this USB card for my mouse? It worked ok in Windows when it was plugged into this card.

Do you have the correct module for USB 2.0? It's ehci-hcd as shown here

Issue this also and see if that rodent is detected

Bus 002 Device 003: ID 046d:c309 Logitech, Inc. Internet Keyboard
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
and after you've got the module for the card, you may or may not have to
reconfigure your mouse.

Here's my lsmod, andit looks lie it's there at the bottom, so I guess that is good :

And here is my lsusb:

Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 04a9:220e Canon, Inc. CanoScan N1240U/LiDE 30
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

That's pretty cool, bus 002 is the new card, and it does have a canoscan plugged into it!
Ok, but now what?

I'm not sure where the problem is exactly, and I've waited hoping that someone
smarter than I would post.

Does the scanner work that's plugged into the card? It's at least recognized so
you must have support for it.

Look at this section of my lsmod output:
Code:
usbmouse                2040   0 (unused)
printer                 7744   0
keybdev                 2052   0 (unused)
mousedev                4212   1
hid                    21220   0 (unused)
usbkbd                  3448   0 (unused)
input                   3200   0 [usbmouse keybdev mousedev hid usbkbd]
When I did a fresh install of Slack-10.0 on a new hard drive, my mouse would
not work until I did "insmod hid" and then edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf properly.

That's the only difference I see between yours and mine. Notice you have
usbcore 59308 1 [scanner uhci usb-ohci ehci-hcd]
and your scanner is recognized but not your mouse.
Then look at my output for usbcore and you see
usbcore 59308 1 [usbmouse printer hid usbkbd uhci ehci-hcd]
and my mouse is recognized, but not my scanner, which is also plugged in.

Now, when I issue
bash-2.05b# insmod scanner
I get some additional entries like this
Code:
bash-2.05b# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by    Tainted: P

gameport                1420   0  [emu10k1-gp]
ide-scsi                9328   1 
8139too                14376   1 
mii                     2272   0  [8139too]
crc32                   2880   0  [8139too]
agpgart                43940   3
So I think you've got to first get the modules for your mouse, and then
go from there.

You may want to plug that guy into the USB port where he worked before, and
then issue "lsmod" and see what he was using. Hope this helps.
