I'm running on a minimal Ubuntu server 12.04.3 install and I installed a d-link DWA-160 usb wifi adapter as per the instructions shown in this page.
After successfully connecting using these instructions (I basically ping google to confirm that I'm connected), I try to run apt-get update but end up getting what appears to be a kernel panic every time I do.
The connection does not seem stable during the update process. For instance, as I'm typing this I've tried again and it seems stuck at :
9% [4 Release 3,980B/49.6 kB 8%] [Waiting for headers] [Waiting for headers]
I usually get a kernel panic shortly thereafter.
I'll try to provide info as needed.
