Where do I find the updated driver for atheros AR 5007EG adapter?

I am running Windows Vista SP2 32 bit on an Acer Aspire 7720Z laptop. I have recently installed a new home hub for the wireless network at home and although I get local access I cannot get internet access using the wireless connection to the home hub. (I am presently connected to the home hub using a wired connection). (The home hub is working fine because other computers at home can get full internet wireless access. The computer works OK and gets wireless internet access on other networks I have tried), (the network adapter is configured to request automatic finding of the IP address for the home hub). I think the solution may be that the current driver is version 7.3.1.73 dated 30/07/2007. Qualcomm who now own Atheros do not provide updated drivers. I understand that there is a CZ website for Atheros but have been unable to work out how to get access to it. There is also a Qualcomm Atheros drivers unauthorized website, is it safe to download the drivers from there?
