Yep, that's one of the things I mentioned in my original post, the one I quoted ;)  I did all of the things.  It talks to the radio, it just immediately fails.  I've tried it on all of the ports, 2.0, 3.0, front, back.  Worked first time on my laptop.  Always worked on the old mobo.  Something with the new one...  I know I have a PCI USB card somewhere, I might dig that out and see if it'll work, rather than the laptop which is in a drawer in my desk.
