Got my HD and USB Ethernet adapter off EBAY. Made the mistake of buying a drive ONE MILLIMETER TOO HIGH! You should definitely go with 11mm and down. Anyway, this post concerns the Netgear (from Nortel) brand of adapters. If any of you have one of these and have had problems with it, check the serial number. It should start with EA11....If it has a 'B' after EA11, it may be from a bad batch. A certain chip heats up after just a few minutes of use and will knock out the connection. Netgear has 24/7 tech support and the tech I spoke with was very friendly and helpful. They're sending me a new one(yay!) even though I purchased it from EBAY. Tech support number is 1-888-NETGEAR. Besides the fact that it kept dying, it seemed to work (no problems with Windows recognizing, etc.). After I get the replacement, I'll post again whether or not it works.
