I installed windows 8 but when I hooked up my Netgear WNA1100 wireless router the system blue screen crashes.... If I pull the adapter from the USB it starts and runs fine.
Any ideas? I cant get on the web?

the drivers are probably incompatible. its beta software so you really shouldn't expect it to work perfectly. if I may ask why would you be connecting a router via USB instead of Ethernet?

its a beta OS. netgear wouldn't even have any kind of driver for it yet. they do say windows 7 drivers work with windows 8 but that does not mean 100% of them will work with it. if the driver does not work then your SOL till the final version of windows 8 comes out
