While I was in the services I noticed an Atheros Program called Jumpstart WiFi Protection Service. It was stopped so I started it and rebooted, but it did nothing to help my problem either. Any further ideas or should I get used to being tethered to my router? Thanks for the help.
I would uninstall the Atheros jumpstart program and the driver from device manager then restart and let Windows 7 install it's own drivers. After that use the Win 7 manual wireless connection manager to set up the new connection using WPA2 and AES "not mixed" and also set to use wireless N or G only not mixed. Also go into your routers set up page and do the same thing using the unmixed settings instead.
