ps...on my old Acer Aspire One ZG5 netbook, it has an Atheros WiFi chip, and to get higher speeds as well as connection to newer WiFi hotspots, I updated to Atheros driver 7.7.0.456, but I can't remember WHERE I found it, that was about 4 years ago. I think I saved the driver install file if I can find it...old wizards have lots of stuff stashed around!
