Hi Brett,

I had the same (bad) experience with a RTL-8169 card and USRP2:
approximately 75% of the time "find_usrps" can not detect the USRP2 (the
same for usrp2_fft.py).

I can not confirm the problem (just now I don't have another card with a
different chipset), but I suspect it is related to the RTL-8169 device.
