The drivers and such are not open source so if they fail, we change the hardware.
I have a problem I believe with the WNA3100 driver for my N-300 Netgear USB adapter. It stops working randomly and won't work again until I reinstall the software, then it works fine again. It seems to happen more when I'm downloading something or streaming. I'm using the 2.0 driver at the minute but I've also tried an earlier version to no avail, same problem.
Anyone have any idea how to fix this?
