I start the computer FRESH from power button and my connection is either, remembered, or the Configure settings forgets that I checked the "Connect automatically when this network is in range". So I'm forced to manually connect upon startup.
I've tried both official Atheros driver
for Vista x64 and the Windows provided Atheros driver from June 2009 for 7. They both do the same crap.
I really hope Microsoft gets something out to fix this...
Do you have more than one computer on your network?
If so, it could be that they are competing for the same IP address.
Set the IP to a fixed address you're sure is free.
Also, check if it isn't trying to connect to your neighbor's network.
Happens sometimes if your neighbor's output is higher than your own.
You can solve this by making your own network the preferred or only one it can connect to.
In the powercfg, disable the hybrid.
Make sure in the Bios only S3 standby is enabled not S1 or S1+S3.
If none of these solutions work, post back.
edit: You can also try to change the transmit channel of your router. It has 13 channels.
If your neighbor uses the same channel, they might interfere.
