I thought those are related to the router's firmware, not a driver.

atheros chipsets are used in routers and wifi network cards alike - my netlink wg311t uses them but netgear is refusing to build up some updated drivers for it :)

Many thanks for this link..After hours of trying unsuccessfully to get my D-Link WDA-1320 to work in XP64, I stumbled upon this forum. I downloaded and installed the Atheros drivers for the Netgear WG311T. It worked perfectly with the WDA-1320, after responses from D-Link that they did not support x64. Needless to say, I am a happy camper. I chose the WDA-1320 because it is one of the few wireless adapters with a low profile bracket to fit a slimline case. I owe you one, and thanks again.

You would likely get the best result from going here for your Atheros drivers.
