BSOD Driver IRQL not less or equal. Increasing in frequency

Hi, I'm running 7 Ultimate 2009 with Service Pack 1
Re-installed from disk after replacing hard drive
64x
Pentium Dual-Core T4200 @ 2Ghz

The time in between BSOD's seems to be getting shorter and shorter but it happens roughly 3 times a day. Below is the error codes displayed after rebooting:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 2057

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: d1
BCP1: 0000000000000094
BCP2: 0000000000000002
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: FFFFF880040C87BD
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 256_1

And attached are the requested dump files and performance information. Thanks for your help.

Related to athrx.sys Extensible Wireless LAN device driver from Atheros Communications, Inc. I would re-install newest driver available.

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Is there any way to know which driver I'd need to update? Where would I look for the name of what is already installed on my system? Thank you.
