Problems with network adapters

    I tried to install and make use of USB network adapters as faster alternative to the classic Airport.

    The first was an Asus WL-167g. The second was a D-Link DWL-G122. In either case, after installing the drivers, when trying to connect (or, in the case of the D-Link adapter, just after plugging it in), the computer gets blocked and I have a message saying in several languages that I must restart the computer.

    Any ideas?

    I noticed that both adapters share the same chipset (Ralink RT2500); may that's the problem? Any experience with working network adapters?

    It is called kernel panic. The hardware may not be compatible with your Mac.
