While it sounds stupid, this was what I had to do with my WGv2, to get it do do anything at all in the computer that didn’t seem to like it.

This wifi works just fine.

LW Atheros chipset and drivers from Sweex are absolutely not the ones as in this post, but I had to do something desperation So does an ethernet cable.
