I got my Netgear N600 WNDA3100v2 set up as described here: Unable to get wireless netgear WNDA3100v2 to work

However, I've been having problems establishing the wi-fi connection. Basically it takes anywhere between 2 to 10 minutes to to connect after a reboot. Things seem smooth once the connection gets established. Here is my iwconfig output.

Maybe drivers for your issue, I used the drivers linked in this guide and don't have the issues in 14.04 you are describing: http://av3ngr.wikispaces.com/Netgear+WNDA3100v2+USB

Only issue I've ran into with this config is a strange issue with wireless related to dual booting, not sure if you are dual booting. If I warm reboot from Windows to Ubuntu. Wireless works no issues. Once in Ubuntu and warm reboot into Windows, wireless blinks amber and blue, and doesn't recognize in Windows. I have to re-seat the USB. It only does this during a warm reboot from Ubuntu to Windows, Cold boots wireless works without issues. I would imagine this is something to do with ndiswrapper, but haven't been able to pinpoint. :\
