When I tried to restart the computer (without disabling the wireless connection), Ubuntu hung at "configuring network interfaces". Took the wireless card out, restarted the computer, and it worked, but it will not go past 'configuring...." with the card in now.
I'm up too late with this again. At the very least, I know the Belkin card will work. It just has to be disabled everytime before the computer is shut down. I think.
