So was it really easier for you to post that than a direct link to a useful site?
No, it's more of a "teach a man to fish" thing. Since you make an issue of it, I will elaborate.
Game for the home audience: How many times can Google solve MixedPower's dilemma?
Q&A with MixedPower:
Q: Your parent's wireless NIC is broken. What do you do?
A: Repair/replace? No thanks, I'd rather opt for a more expensive connectivity option, with less throughput.
Q: Oh no, the adapter is out of stock at Newegg. Do you shop elsewhere
A: I can't; a gypsy that I annoyed put a curse on my Newegg tattoo--every time I order somewhere other than Newegg, the egg hatches a little. I don't want to know what's inside.
Q: OK, here's a different adapter. Do you check to see if it's compatible?
A: Nope; the best time to find out something won't work is after you've already purchased it.
Q: It's not working. Troubleshoot, or do cursory research into the problem?
A: I'd rather ask people with less experience than I have and get butthurt if anyone hints at my questionable sense of judgment.
T: The device is clearly broken.
Ninja Edit: I need to be more productive, and this is as good a stopping point as any. Break time.
