[driverloader] Intermittent connection on Thinkpad T40p with Atheros chip set

I know how this ends. 

John, Driverloader does not support all atheros hardware. 

They do not really admit that. They still keep "Atheros" on their
supported list, and they do not mention this detail in an asterisk
there, or on their "known issues" list.

But this is how they support it:

"the developers told me that they will take a look at this problem as
soon as they have a little time.


That was **January 2005**, by the way (and many months after I first
reported the problem). Not a word since.

Your letter and your problem is exactly like mine (I had a dlink PCI
card, same atheros chipset). They sent me hunting for drivers too. All
the drivers I tried work fine with Windows XP, none were reliable with
Driverloader. Instead of finding a fix or a workaround, they gave up and
blew me off. 

My advice, if you are still trialing, don't pay them a dime. If you
already paid, get your money back. NDISWrapper, by the way, has the same
problem. The Madwifi driver works, but with no super-G. That's all there
is on linux right now.
