I have looked around and read about various problems with the wireless card.
Mine is specifically, that it will be working most of the time just perfectly, and then randomly it will hang up, and as i am browsing or something, i cant load new webpages.
On “repair”ing the connection, it tells me that it cannot repaired right away (at the moment of reactivating).
In the device manager, it tells me “Error 10: the device could not be started” (thats my translation from the german message”. It doesnt help to deinstall and reinstall the device.
(The hardware is recognized, but upon installing either the 126.96.36.1990 or 188.8.131.52 atheros driver from the list, it goes right back to error 10).
Neither does samsung magic doctor work. the only thing that helps is shutting the computer off (restart wont do it), after which my wifi is backup and working, sometimes for days, sometimes for hours only, until it will die randomly again.
Does anybody know a solution to this problem without starting from scratch from the original samsung state and not performing any updates? (I have performed all the updates and from reading, i think this doesnt happen with the original version of all drivers).
Is this a driver issue or could this be a hardware failure of some sort?
Grateful for solutions,
P.S. I also wonder if this could have to do with having Cisco VPN Client installed, as this diggs pretty deep into network settings i think, but the problem even occurs at home when i have no CVPN processes running..March 11, 2009 at 2:26 pm #185409tntdynamightMember

Sorry tntdynamight, can’t comment. I have installed the driver version 184.108.40.2060 and my wireless network behaves impeccably.
Only suggestion I have is to clean and check your registry by installing and running CCleaner.March 11, 2009 at 8:28 pm #185408ParodyMember
Poking around the net for “wireless error 10” (no quotes) gave answers like making sure registry permissions were set properly or that the OS had assigned an IRQ above 15 to the wireless card in question and apparently it couldn’t handle it. Very strange in this day and age.
First off, if you haven’t already, try doing the same search I did and poke around the messages to see if anything looks familiar.
Are you in a position where you can do a restore or clean install? If that fixes things, it might be the easiest way to do so.
Have you contacted Samsung support? It may very well be hardware-related, and they might know what tends to go wrong more often than us random folks on the Internet. :)
Hope this helps.
