As most everything is network related, we start by examining the stack text, the raw stack text, and the drivers listed in the memory dump.
    Does this translate to the Atheros driver not being a problem?
    I don't think we can say that it IS not the problem till the problem faced by OP is solved and he posts back on how he solved it.

    It's uncertain if the driver is a problem or not.
    IMO, the atheros.cz drivers are usually very reliable.
    But I wonder if there's a relationship between the driver and the later hal.dll calls.

    My point here was that this is likely a problem with a network-related driver (not necessarily the Atheros driver).
    It points out further things to look for.

    FWIW - one thing that I look at is those drivers that regularly appear in the memory dump analysis.
    If they are eventually proved not to be the problem, then I look elsewhere (both at your installed programs/devices and at other reports that will (in this case) give me an indication of what network-related drivers are on the system.

    A driver does not have to show up in the memory dump to be a problem (but it most often does).
    It's those that don't show up that are the hardest to figure out.

    For example:
    Assume that driver B writes to the memory space owned by driver A - then driver B exits.
    Later on driver A access' that memory space and finds corrupted data there - so it crashes with a BSOD.
    The memory dump won't have the info to point to driver B because it's already exited - so most often it'll blame driver A (or a Windows driver).
