    My wifi drivers had to be stolen from Windows. It's because of the HAL (Hardware Access Layer) and not being able to release the source code for it or people could set the power higher than legally allowed.

    You might want to google ndiswrapper for this and figure out what Windows uses for wifi drivers on your PC. Mine uses ar5211.sys and net5211.inf, both from system32. Works perfectly.
