Model : TL-WN422G

Hardware Version : V2

Firmware Version :


I used that TL-WN422G V2 USB WLAN adapter few years with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate and the driver from CD and everything worked fine.
Now I want to use that adapter for my new pc, but now I get blue screens from athurx.sys.
I uninstalled the adapter and deleted the driver several times in the Device Manager and installed the TP-Link driver for Win 7.
But after installing one of the both latest drivers (100324 and 100611), Win 7 gives a blue screen after 1 or 2 hours surfing in the internet.
All latest USB and Chipset drivers are installed, memtest86+ runs without errors.

Here is one of the dumb files, opened with WhoCrashed:

Ok, I got it. Problem was the 2 meter USB extension cable, without extension cable I have no more blue screens. Weird.
