IT WORKS WITH THE NETGEAR AFTER A REBOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I believe that I should explain a bit more as to what I did incase it could help someone else.
After I put the NetGear USB Wireless Adaptor in the computer, it began to blink, but said disconnected.
So I staticed the IP address using the Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS from my window 7 system. I accessed my router for an open IP address, then rebooted.
And it worked.
So once again, Thinks, and
ps... the ASUS works great with my Window, so no loss there!
Hey, great news. Well, if switching the adapters works for you, if it works, don't fix it, heh. Glad we helped get you online with your Linux install, even if it wasn't the way we originally planned.
