Atheros 9285 Wireless Network Adapter Help!

Hi, I'm ready to rip my hair out of my skull over this Adapter. Here are the syptoms:

Randomly Disconnects

Adapter Randomly Shuts Down, sometimes putting my computer on sleep mode fixes this. However sometimes my computer goes into 'half' sleep mode where everything shuts down except the computer keeps running, in this case I have to reset my computer.

When Playing PC Video games after 10-20 minutes my Computer Recieves a blue Screen of Death.

I have tried every driver on the internet, the old to the new does nothing different. Everyone else in my house hold does not have any of these issues mentioned.

Here is my Current Setup:

Here is the Document given after a reset from a Blue Screen:


If I'm not allowed to post Downloads I apologize, here's a small screenshot from the sysdata.xml

Thank you in advance for any help, I tried searching the forum earlier for a similar issue but I couldn't find any resolutions. Thanks again.

If your computer is the only one going down and you have multiple symptoms, your problem is not with the router. Try reposting your issue here: Crashes and Debugging - Windows 7 Forums

Someone should be able to diagnose your BSOD and help you there. :)
