Windows 7: Wireless Adapter issues since Dual Boot

Wireless Adapter issues since Dual Boot

Hello everyone,
I need help with my wireless adapter Netgear WNA3100 that won't load in Windows after I reboot from being in LinuxMint 15. My situation is that I had to use the Windows Wireless Driver tool in Linux to get a working driver, but once Linux boots, I will have internet access for two minutes before loosing it. The icon says internet access though which is the strange part. Then, I will reboot into Windows where the adapter stops working completely until I pull it out and back into a usb port. The partitions are on separate hard drives and I used a separate driver in Linux, so I don't understand how the two can conflict with each other. I'm hoping for an answer since I am finally jumping over to Linux for a trial thanks in advance !
