Hey dd_rabbit, apparently the reason for the links not working is due to an unwanted redirect. They told me it would be fixed soon although they can't say for definite when :)

:) I am REALLY stuck here. Basically, I downloaded the Atheros thing and I went into the add hardware utility in the Control Panel. I then ran the .inf file and it came up with all the drivers. But i couldn't find the driver for the WG311T. So i decided just to run any one, but it came up with an error saying that the device will not start up. What am I supposed to do? Ive looked around on google to see, but all there is is the same thing. Oh and by the way, I have the actual WG311T driver which doesn't work installed at the same time. Could that be affecting it. I wouldnt think so. :)

Make sure you google and find out which chipset the wg311t uses. I have a wpn311 and this uses ar5004g. Sop i grabbed these and installed it as a ar5004g.

Signal has dropped a little, but im on x64, and netgear drivers are BETA still. These seem fine to me , and artheros update a fair bit too :)

I had an issue with the latest .48 drivers, they caused my Audio to start Crackling/Popping. I was forced to revert to the good old 1.15 NMI fix version.

It has been fine for me to just use the latest modded inf and replace the version info. Haven't experienced an NMI parity error or connection issue since :)

Is anyone else having trouble reconnecting to a wireless network if the router/AP is reset? I have tried every driver here to no avail. When I make a change to the wireless router (WGL-4500), it must reboot for the changes to take effect. However, the DWA-552 I have will not immediately reconnect and struggles to get an IP after it does reconnect. It normally takes approximately 90 seconds for it to re-associate to the router and if I leave it long enough (6 minutes), it will typically get an IP address.

I've lost too many hours of my life troubleshooting this. Anyone here run across this situation?

Running Vista Ultimate x64, DWA-552 and WGL-4500 (WPA2 security).

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone happen to know if there are any drivers for D-link DWA-547 (desktop PCI adapter) for Vista x64? I haven't found anything that would work.

All the 7 series drivers support your PCI card

ATHR.DeviceDesc.DWA547 = "D-Link DWA-547 RangeBooster N650 Desktop Adapter"

The driver should install as is.

The modded driver should also work.

But you need to install via Control Panel Device properties update driver, just point it to the dir with the files you've just downloaded

Yeah but there's a but, it always gives error code 10 or 39 and it does not automatically pick it up. I have to manually force it to install because it says Windows can not verify if it is compatible. By the way, I think that it's based on AR5008X if that helps (you might know that already but anyway).

The unmodded drivers should work from the box.

My modded ones will do what you see, as I specialise in AR5008x and now 982x chipsets.

I'll look into adding more support for the other chipset in 2 weeks or so, remind if I havn't done so by then

By the way, I tried modded v7.6.0.83 driver and it picked AR5008X automatically without need to force it but the problem is still there: error code 10 device can not start.

Byaaah! :) Still doesn't work on D-link DWA-547 in Vista x64. :)

It should be supported as it's in the INF as such

ATHR.DeviceDesc.DWA547 = "D-Link DWA-547 RangeBooster N650 Desktop Adapter"

It does not automatically install the driver because Vista can not verify that it is compatible with it an it gives error code 10 when I force install it. I really do not know why it does not work.

If I remember correctly, Atheros 7.3.1.073 came bundled with WLanMon 5.0.0.439.

There might be a newer version of WLanMon available somewhere though.

I found version(5.0.0.439) of the WlanMon utility here: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/153268

I did not know this utility until now...I tried on my laptop with a AR5007EG and some fields get filled and updated on transmit/receive and the monitor does not work with the driver version i have, that is 7.4.2.57, from windows update.
