    I have a Netgear WNDA3100 USB Wireless Network Adapter. I ran the install disk's setup using WINE (it is designed for Windows) and I was able to extract the folder containing the driver for the device. I loaded the driver in Windows Wireless Drivers (ndiswrapper), and it was recognized. When I plugged in the USB adapter, this showed up-
    (Sorry, it wouldn't let me upload the pics directly).

    I assume this is some sort of crash, but I don't know how to fix it. When this shows up everything else freezes and I have to restart my computer. Does anyone know what I can do?

    That sir, is a kernel panic.
    Drivers for windows, in all cases except for really rare ones, never work with linux. This means, the wine thing is futile; you won't make it work like that.
    Secondly, the kernel did not like what the driver for the card did, and panicked. What I would do is send in a bug report to your OS's bug tracker.
