    Its a long story but basically have switched to the wpn111 usb wireless adapter from a bt voyager pci card. Since installing the drivers the pc now randomly freezes and needs to be restarted. :mad:
    I have read about this problem on the netgear forum but with no real solution.
    Any of you guys got any ideas/suggestions?

    Being honest, USB sucks as a network interface.

    Have you tried new drivers?

    yep tried the newest ones from the website first, then resorted to using the ones on the included cd. Same problem.
    Its only a temporary measure using the usb adapter but still i would like my pc to work whilst i am using it! :(

    USB network adaptors are genrally pretty poor stability wise. Stay clear of them if you can.
