Issue with usb device - Zwave controller

hi,
all the time i upgrade HA and it got restarted … somehow the zwave controller attached via usb disappears. i have to manually unplug / plug it back so it shows in usb devices

after reboot:

[core-ssh ~]$ ls /dev/serial/by-id/
usb-ITead_Sonoff_Zigbee_3.0_USB_Dongle_Plus_22ce4be9743bec119ea0a4957a0af07f-if00-port0

when i unplugged it physically and plugged it back

[core-ssh ~]$ ls /dev/serial/by-id/
usb-0658_0200-if00
usb-ITead_Sonoff_Zigbee_3.0_USB_Dongle_Plus_22ce4be9743bec119ea0a4957a0af07f-if00-port0

any idea why it “disappear” after reboot?

Plugged into usb3 jack maybe sometimes makes dongles crazy. It is connected on an extension cable to get it away from interference?

@Sir_Goodenough hello,
yes plugged in usb3 via usb2 cable (1m) … so means that usb2 cable might be the issue?

thanks

More likely the usb3 hole. The 2m cable is a good thing. Keeps the radio away from the CPU interference.
