There are limits on current for usb ports. A laptop has a hard time with USB items which draw a lot of current (relatively speaking...it is micro amps). Replace your usb hub with a powered one that comes with a AC power adapter. .USB ports crap out when there is too much power demanded of them and the southbridge chip will follow suit.
I looked at the specs on your laptop. Doesn't yours have an integrated wireless adapter or an RJ-45 connector for ethernet LAN? Why not buy a ExpressCard/54 wireless card? If you have wireless internet it is far more efficient to use the interface that the laptop has built in rather than fool around with usb wireless cards.
Here is a link to NewEgg.com where the express card wireless adapters are.
