I'm running window vista ultimate x64 and was using the driver i found on the Netgear Forums since there are no official 64 bit drivers, but windows update decided there was a better one available and changed it to that one. I believe the name to be Atheros.
I've searched google and have only found people having issues with their firewalls and anti-virus. I however do not have any.
I play a lot of Online games and believe this may be the problem of my random ping spikes in game.
