    It seems there are 2 drivers, one for Atheros, one for Intel.

    Similarly, there's a Wireless Lan Client Manager for each: Atheros, Intel.

    Edit: too late for the drivers, but here's a link for Directx 9.0c

    you can use the dxdiag command to check the state of directx on your computer. maybe looking at the info there can give some clue abot the problem?
