I opened its Properties window from its context menu, went into the Driver tab, and clicked Update Driver Problem solved It’s worth mentioning that the Atheros cards work beautifully when a good driver’s found. I downloaded the files you said but when i go into device manager to look for the wireless card, i dont see it, i havent been able to even get it to work once cuz it always freezes upon insertion. The driver you provided a charm. I can surf the net, I can download, I can use the local network – Everything goes! I’ve tried various drivers and updates, even uninstalled an windows update, as they say on the netgear support site. Now, everything works fine!

My wife 512a a Toshiba Satellite last year and we haven’t been able to get the Atheros Wx chipset to work with our router at all. Struggling with getting wireless to work Nov 27, It was definitely an issue with the driver, because the card worked flawlessly in Linux with MadWifi drivers. Thanks to you i finally overcame the freezing problem on my system!
It now runs rock solid.

Instead of freezing after a few minutes. Thanks to Iuvr and it’s post, my wg works again. You say your laptop freezes as soon as you plug the card in, so it’s probably loading the wrong driver immediately. I don’t believe that the Atheros hardware is to blame; once you install the right driver, it works great, doesn’t it?
