When I plug in my ez connect adapter to the USB port the computer re boots over and over

Damaged usb port? See if contacts are bent. Bad wifi adapter is possible. Try another wireless device in the port (mouse, keybd) to see if port is okay. Some adapters require that you install software before using, but this should not cause reboots.

On the right, find the wireless card and its Hardware ID (PNP Device ID)... select it, then click Edit->Copy

Paste that into google and edit it down to the PCI\VEN_xxxx&DEV_yyyy part, add a space and the word driver, then search.

Cant connect my SMC to other home computer and have a netgear router, how do i connect my smc adapter

Most hardware like an Network Adaptor you install the software CD 1st. Then plug in the hardware.

Then if you configured wireless (wifi, 802.11) settings on your SMC - you should fine the network NAME when you try to connect. You will be asked for the security key for WEP or WPA or WPA2 that you used in the SMC.

SMC should... then assign IP Settings automatically. If the SMC has Internet, you should have Internet.

SMC EZ Connect 2862W-G does not see Linksys network

It shows that your wireless router and wireless adapters are both working. One thing to try is changing your wireless channel. Since you are already using 11, try maybe 1 or 9. Check if your SMC adapter will pick up the wireless signal.

By the way, how far is your computer (using the SMC adapter) to your wireless router?
