I have a NetGear wireless usb receiver in my desktop, that connects to my router (tried both DLink and Belkin) prefectly fine, however will simply disconnect after minutes, 10s of minutes, a couple of hours (no real pattern) at which time I will need to unplug and reinsert my usb receiver and reauthenticate to the router.
It appears to be happening alot more frequently when the pc is left unused for a while, and goes to the screen saver.
This has been hapenning on 10.04 and 10.10 (gnome) (and possibly 9.10 as well, though I have updated my gear since then)
Rather than expect someone to give me a magic bullet solution (that I'm happy to get :) ), as a novice user, what should I be looking at to troubleshoot this?
I have looked at this question already, and to my (limited) understanding, don't see that it addresses the issue, unless there is someway of ascertaining what chipset it used.
Looks like there are 2 drivers for the WN111 V2, the first does not support N routers, and the second is 'N speeds not verified'. I may have to shop around for a better one :/
