I haven't gotten any reply's over at the Netgear forums so I thought I'd try here. Maybe someone else is having this problem.

I have a dual boot system running Fedora 12 and WindowsXP. I recently bought a Netgear wireless USB model WNDA3100v2 and immediately got the newest drivers from the netgear site. Installed into windows just fine and runs perfect with no problems at all. I installed into Fedora using ndiswrapper and that went perfect at well.

Heres the problems:

1: When the throughput gets high ( over 150kB download for a minute ) the connection will quit. I say connection but the network mgr still shows me connected and I still have full signal. I just cant get any received data nor can I connect to my routers address. Its just gone. If I disconnect from the network and reconnect it will indeed connect but still no data, even if I unplug the USB stick and plug it back in. The only way to fix it is to reboot. Again, this is only if the bandwith gets high, I can browse websites all day, but for example if I run a bandwith speed test two or three times real quick I lose connection. Ideas ??

2: Is there something I need to change in order to see Wireless N 5Mhz networks? I have a dual band Netgear router. When I'm in windows I see both networks but not when I'm in linux. Ideas?

Some details:
