passing an Atheros USB dongle through to VBox Aug 19 2012 09:51PM

I was wondering if anyone had come across this problem and had a way
to fix it...

I've got an Atheros USB dongle and I'm trying to pass it through from
a Windows 7 host to a Debian VirtualBox guest but when I let it
connect I get this error:

[33967.374757] usb 1-1: USB disconnect, device number 3

[33986.037032] ath9k_htc: probe of 1-1:1.0 failed with error -22

it shows in lsusb so it getting through just not working for some reason.

Other people have had this problem so not just me:


but it seems like something that should work so was hoping someone had
a solution.
