The only stable config for me is bios with the Atheros drivers from windows update vista ultimate. A couple of tips.
wirepess Seems to work well for some. For other people, the wireless connects and works just fine, but then won’t work for a few minutes – but doesn’t disconnect from the router.

I installed the new driver on mine, but never seemed to have a problem before. Once I get the wifi module replaced I’ll continue my quest wireldss the aftermarket 6 cell battery.

Acer did come out with a new driver for the built-in WiFi radio. Now, you won’t get true Wireless-n without the third antenna, but reception overall seems better with the Intel card, and the Intel card does not get as hot as the Atheros.
