fix for atheros AR5007 linksys conflict
all you need to do is update to software version 188.8.131.528.... i found it on a czechoslovakian website (i know, sounds sketchy right?) but it works!!
I did the firewall/proxy/ping/uninstall/reset song and dance for a while, and yes i know device manager will tell you that you're running the best and newest version available (no update since 2007 really?)
download driver 184.108.40.2068 properties/driver/update driver/browse and select your downloaded driver.....and POOF!! MAGIC!! it works!! but hey if it doesnt work its easy enough to roll back to previous driver and just log on as "guest ssid"
