I found a wonderful tutorial on how to install my driver here but I quickly ran into a problem. Let me explain the problem i am facing. I want to install a Linux distro (still looking into different distros) on my machine. From my past painful experiences, I know that I need to install drivers separately for the wireless adapter to work. Yet in order to get the tools to convert my driver I need an internet connection. Sadly no other computer in my house has Linux on it for me to do this and since everyone in my house is scared that I'm going to break their computer (past experience makes this understandable) using a LiveCD is unheard of. I've come to the conclusion that I would most likely need to get Ndiswrapper on my Windows machine convert the driver from there and then store it in the drive somehow so I can access it later. Any ideas?
You probably don't need to extract the drivers from your Windows install. Provided you can find your device in this list: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ndiswrapper/index.php?title=Main_Page
... you'll simply need to follow the procedure to obtain the Windows drivers here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper#Downloading_Windows_Drivers
The Netgear WNA3100 does have a page: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ndiswrapper/index.php?title=Netgear_WNA3100
What you can do is to get whatever you need downloaded under Windows. It might be a bit tricky to find out what "automatized installation procedures" grab and how they do it, but if it isn't obvious perhaps a Google search with the exact card version gives step by step instructions. Just be careful with "practical joker" instructions, or just misguided people who don't know what they are suggesting.
