http://forums.fedoraforum.org – So after reinstalling Fedora because of a different problem which was my fault I was working in IDLE doing a web project for work. Watching a little youtube as well. Suddenly kernel crashes. Lost all my work. :dis: Anyways. This has happened before 8/10 times when I plug in my usb adapter and it fails connect and even when it does connect to my router. The kernel crashes. I've done my googling on this. It appears to be a pervasive bug. But I wanted to see if maybe I'm missing an easy solution other than buying a new adapter. no dmesg because i restarted but I can provide if required (HowTos)
