Now this Wifi card has ALWAYS been a bit quirky, losing IP connex, not wanting to let the internal network PC's to share and so on (on XP), but after a month or so of W7 it got worse, dropping the IP connex, SLOW connex and generally being belligerent. so I did the W7 driver update thing and it said I had the best driver for the card.
I decided to go to realtek.com and look to see what was there, the little hardware picker annoyed me, so I did a search on 8185 and found a download software link (Very bottom of the waffle page).
Look at the drivers bit and downloaded this UI Package and Driver (Support XP/Vista/Win7) 1122 2010/1/25 14684k it gave me this zip RTL8185_Auto_Install__Pargram__1.00.0145.zip
Which made the card work properly, fast connection, no dropouts and all clients can now connect to their server. A massive torrent of old books that I've been trying to download for 2 months at the occasional 1kb/s is wizzing along at 75kb/s (I have a slow connex)
The pargram mis-type is not mine, I c&p'd it from Explorer
Hope it helps
