Mint 15, Belkin N300 Wireless USB Driver

Postby mcmillhj on Wed Sep 25, 2013 9:48 pm

I just migrated from Windows to Mint, and was unable to use my Netgear wireless USB adapter due to the driver (WNA3100) not natively being supported. I googled around for instructions on how to install the driver and didn't find anything that seemed to work. OS instead of dealing with that I decided to get a wireless USB adapter (Belkin N300 Micro) that was claimed to 'work perfectly' with Mint 15. I however have found that it drops my wireless connection randomly and I wont be able to access pages for several minutes.

Is there anything that I can do to improve its functionality? Or would it be better to go back to my Netgear adapter?

Thanks
