This driver is from HP.

Why this driver you might ask? The screenshots below should answer your queries.

Additional Encryption Schemes Not Found in other Atheros Driver


So you can choose which driver fits your needs.

After installation of Atheros Driver 8.X a utility should appear in the Control Panel.
Here are some screenshots:
