    It appears that your troubles are being caused by an out dated wireless driver:

    Looking at the time stamp we can see it is rather old:

    Please update your driver from here: ATHEROS Wireless drivers for Windows

    the driver you wand is for the AR9485WB it is the sixth from the bottom on the list.
