    Default Question about removing wireless USB adapter

    I was searching for but couldnt find any safely remove option for my USB wifi adapter in BT3. Do we straightaway pull it out or is there a safely remove option somewhere?? I hope it doesnt harm the USB adapter by pulling it out straightaway.

    Please help

    Please reread the forum rules, especially that part:

    Use sensible descriptive titles in your posts - not titles such as "Please Help!!" or "Need Assistance" or "what Am I Doing Wrong?" etc

    No, it won't hurt the adapter. The only reason you see warnings about removing USB memory devices is that the data sometimes takes a while to be written, and if you pull it out early, the data can be trashed. Just like in banking and in sex, there is a penalty of early withdrawal. That does not apply to wireless devices as there is nothing that is written to the device.

    exus69, always UNMOUNT your usb devices before removing them - use the 'umount' command for this. That is the alternative of "safe remove" in windows* os. That applies to usb storage devices, of course, not to wireless devices.
