I have a Netgear WNA1100 Wireless Adapter that I bought a few weeks ago, so its fairly new. Last night it was working perfectly. I turned my computer off for the night, came back in the morning, and found that I had no wireless. The desktop that its being used on is running is Fedora 15 x32 and my laptop where I did testing on runs Fedora 15 x64

Ok, that's not good but isn't helpful as Google can't seem to find anything on error -22. So I bring up a Windows XP VM in Virtualbox, install the Netgear software, and get a Code 10 error in the driver manager. Possible causes as listed on their website for this error
- IRQ conflict
- Adapter not plugged in properly
- Wrong/Incorrect driver installed
Well I'm sure its plugged in properly (wasn't touched on my desktop) and I'm sure I have the right driver, which leaves the IRQ conflict, which makes absoltely no sense.
As a side note when testing in Virtualbox I got a big wall of errors in dmesg. They are all pretty much

What could possibly be the problem? This was working just fine last night. I've tried every usb port on two different computers, all with the same message. How can something just die over night
