Uploader Notes

WOW what a PITA to get this thing to work under XP Pro SP2!!!! Used this for an Acer Aspire 3680 that was previously loaded with Vista Basic. Several devices show up as unknown after format/cold XP install, most drivers from vendor FTP (ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_3680/driver/) work EXCEPT the Atheros! After MUCH hair loss/cursing/drinking/throwing stuff, discovered this kind soul ('npahlavan' from techspot.com) hosting some drivers on his site (http://www.phoenixnetworks.net/atheros.php) that he discovered during his wanderings and this one is from there. Was NOT able to locate this driver elsewhere. Atheros/Acer should be ______ (insert painful expletive of choice..) for not supporting this device properly!!!! Uploading here so that others might not suffer...
