OK, its funny when you are ready to give up that the solution comes to you. Now it might be just waiting to act up again but its been long enough I think it might be working.
Get access to your router and set the frequency from auto (I have a 2wire) and i changed it to 2462 MHz although perhaps any set freq may work.
Please let me know if it works for you as I will be sure to plaster it all over the web so others don't get as frustrated.

usually the problem like this was cause by unupdated firmware of either you wireless card or router. check the manufacturer of both devices and check the website if there is any updated firmware of both. you will also find instructions on how to upgrade the firmware on the manufacturer website.
If you have hidden your network name (SSID) in the wireless configuration in the router and use WEP or WPA security there may be a bug that can result in extended disconnect periods. Recommended solution unhide the SSID and keep the WEP or WPA security.
Second there are numerous wireless devices in use. Keep your wireless phone base station away from your wireless router. Try changing the channel your router's radio uses to transmit -- Channels 1, 6 and 11 are preferred. Try one you are not using, if that does not work try the other. (If you can see the surrounding channels in you connection wizard you may want to start with one no one else is using)
I think you may that the "Drivers" & OR settings for this WiFi adapter are not working correctly.
What ya need to do is Install the "Drivers" & "Software" from the Netgear CD that came with ya device and set it all up per your manual.
Here are a couple of links to help below..
Basically, ya install the drivers & software reboot, insert ya USB WiFi into ya USB port, if it then asks for "Drives" point it to ya CD... when finished then you should be able to "See" ya Access point etc.. and connect.. setting any protocols you wish..
