    The links have been deleted because I received a DMCA takedown by Microsoft for this file so mediafire removed access to the file in error. Quite stupid if you ask me.

    God knows why because the file isn't even owned by Microsoft. But Qualcomm/Atheros.

    However you can still find it in the main bundle collection.

    Under what conditions are these supposed to work for the Atheros AR9271/UB91C ?

    I couldn't get them to detect my 036NHA adapter here - Win7 x64.

    The 10.0.0.338 that is....[/SIZE][/B][/SIZE]

    Disregard the 64-bit versions (they never worked properly). In fact even the 32-bit versions can be screwy depending *which* driver get's used.

    As for tweaking the output power in windows forget it. Atheros is always region locked and the firmware doesn't take kindly to tampering at all to bypass, and will reduce the output power to worse than useless levels even further if you try. :)

    There a no known tools available to edit the 9271 firmware unlike Ralink or Realtek.

    I'm re-uploading 10.0.0.28 to my mediafire acc. Let's hope M$ don't try to take it down again this time.

    Other quirks I've noticed recently about the AR9271 drivers

    Version 9.2.0.19 for Windows 7 is the *ONLY* driver available which works correctly in 150mbps mode for Win7. In fact 150mbps connect rate is what the adapter is specified for on the box, rather than being just N in name only.

    I.e. When the AP is set to 40Mhz channel 300mbps mode. And 72.2 when the channel mode is 20mhz.

    All the other drivers beginning 2.0.0.x only give max connection rate of 65mbps whatever the AP setting. (20mhz or 40mhz HT/20 HT/40).....oops.

    * Further testing reveals the Vista drivers 8.0.0.87 also doesn't suffer these restrictions of the native Windows 7 drivers(also gives 150mbps instead of 65mbps), so since the 9.2.0.19 is a crap worse performing driver in and of itself, I would recommend you use the Vista drivers on Windows 7 and stay away from the Windows 7 native drivers altogether for Windows 7 unless you prefer frequent unexplained disconnections, and getting less speed than you paid for whether your using 036NHA or TP-Link WN722N.

    I can't comment on how the 10.x.x.x behave in that regard, as I refuse to upgrade to Windows 10, free or paid.

    The best AR9271 driver for win 8.1 x64 is 10.0.0.49. It comes from windows update so I guess it's the most recent one, for Windows 7.
    It's almost rock solid. There are no BSODs and it very rarely powers off by itself.
    We can keep an access point running for several hours without issues (I saw it stopping ocasionally but I guess it's caused by too many connected clients)

    I clarify that golpebaixo's solution is working for me. However the driver will not install because it is 32-bit one. For Windows 8.1 x64 you can use version 2.0.0.49 (originally for Windows 7 64-bit) that can be downloaded here:

    However it occasionally disconnects without reason, but at least no BSOD BAD_POOL_HEADER

    These appear to be the drivers from CommView for Wifi. They might have a good reason for using those weird release dates.

    It's great that they work fine on Windows 7 because they are the worst garbage on Windows 8.1. Not only they're unstable but we also get a guaranteed BSOD by just unplugging the adapter.
