Is there a hardware GPO Setting about devices/hardware?

By ricky.helmer ·
At our business, we use Verizon Pantech air-cards. However, since we implemented Active Directory, anytime a laptop goes into standby and the user starts the application to use their air-cards, a windows box comes up and says searching for hardware (specifically the Pantech PC card). This box disappears, and reappears, never getting anywhere.

The only way to fix it is a restart or to remove the PC Card before standby, but this will cause more effort on employees as they will HAVE to use the safely remove hardware option before they pull out the card, or they will get a blue screen of death.

Im wondering if maybe there is a policy not allowing them to detect/install removable devices.. Weird because it is already installed and works correctly after a restart.
