Driver problem. Go into control panel and delete the adapter drivers. Remove the wifi adapter Then re-boot. I suspect the BSD (blue screen of death) was a result of a driver problem. If you have another computer that you can get on the internet with, go to the manufacturer website and download a driver. If you can get one, install the driver BEFORE plugging in the device and wait for the install program to prompt you to plug in the device. If you can't download a new driver, try plugging in the device again and see what happens. You need to avoid the BSD.
You don't need to do a re-install of the DLink WiFi adaptor since I believe it is running as it should (as you posted). All that is needed is to configure it to exclusively select only your NetGear WiFi Router. This could be done in the DLInk Wizard (Start/All Programs/DLink.../) set the DLInk to connect only to the SSID of your NetGear. Though it may pick up your neighbors WiFi, the DLink will only acknowledge the presence of the other WiFi but connect only and always to the NetGear.
A couple of other things that may help improve your WiFi connection. Use static IP add in your PC to match that of the NetGear, disable wireless security (WEP or WPA) but rather enable MAC filter and input that of your PC's WiFi Networking Card.
Should you need a more detailed instructions, pls post back the model of your router and the make/model of your PC as well as your OS.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
There are a few things you can do in this case. First, I would check to see if you have your network profile set up correctly. This is done by going in to your wireless properties and checking the profile to see if the encryption password is correct as well as the encryption type and so on. Next, you can go in to the device manager and make sure the wireless adapter is recognized and enabled. If you need help doing these things, let me know.
