USB WLAN adapter laging down entire system


hi

i bought this netgear ma101 (rev.b) usb adapter some time ago and now i want to use it on my linux box
actually it's just virtual (fedora core II on vmware) with a 2.6.5 kernel

i compiled and installed the atmelwlandriver and it loads without problems
if i plug in the device now here's what happens

dmesg:
Code:
usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using address 9
usb vendor/product=864/4102
usbvnetr: driver version 2.0.1.0, compiled Dec 24 2004 18:06:46 (dbg_mask x0)
MAC addr 00:09:5B:34:0A:AA firmware 1.103.2.175
divert: allocating divert_blk for atml0

....
it would then lag down my entire system within just a few seconds

as i'm relatively new to linux i just wanted to ask if anyone here could help me with this

thx

Wait...are you running Linux inside of VMWare on, say, Windows?

You don't need the Atmel driver then.

There are rumours that kernels <2.6.11 have some usb-related bugs...
