So recently I have installed the second wireless adapter into my custom dekstop, but now it freezes at random times. I have restarted a dozen times, but it doesn't help. It sometimes freezes on the logon screen, and I have to do another restart.

The first wireless adapter I had also had a similar problem. It froze my computer for about 3 weeks, worked great for about 3 months, then died. I don't know if this is my mobo acting up, or if I need to RMA the adapter. Pls respond, any help is greatly appreciated.

When the wifi adapter is running, and you have an internet connection, pull up task manager and fine the process being used by ASUS' software and end the task. This should take care of that.

On a side note, why in the world do you have a 1000w PSU for that system? You're amount of power draw will put that at the least efficient power state on an already poorly-made power supply (Raidmax). You need to get you a better power supply before updating graphics cards.
