Windows 7: Atheros Wireless Drivers?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

As far as I'm aware the 3 antennae editions are wireless N (draft) network adapters and should be performing much better when paired with a wireless N router. If you are using a USB wireless N adapter make sure it's in a USB2.0 compliant slot, most USB slots on modern hardware are USB2.0 and more frequently USB3.0 are becoming available. If you get a ballon telling you this device could perform faster when you plug it in it may be worth checking the BIOS to make sure these ports are USB2 enabled.
