Hi. I work in a computer shop and I'm working on a comp with the SAME EXACT problem.
HP Pavilion dv7-1133cl with an Atheros AR5009 802.11a/g/n WiFi Adapter
Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit edition
I have a feeling it's a 64-bit issue, but not sure. I reinstall the driver and it works for multiple reboots. But after leaving it off for a while the wireless does not initialize and the light does not turn blue and I get an exclamation mark in the device manager. I havewn't tried too many things yet. I'll see if a BIOS update is available, or perhaps a different driver.

There's a BIOS driver update here on hp's website, but it doesn't fix the problem. I've called tech support twice, and they've had me reinstall the driver and the BIOS multiple times, but none of the remedies last. For some reason, I've been able to get it working just by fiddling with the wireless button and manually enabling/disabling the driver.

At least i'm not the only one with tihis problem... This code 10 error hapen to me also, every time i turn on my laptop after more then 2-3 hours, i also used online help form hp about 3 times and still nothing... same thing upgrade the drivers and bios reset the Wifi and so on .... Is very frustrating especially after the last tehnician told me that i'm the only one with this problem (means that hp doesn't have a database with all the errors and solutions). Maybe we can help each other cause i lost my faith in HP Help. Did anybody instaled any update from Microsoft since the begining of December before noticeing the error ? Or did anybody did a clean install of Vista and did the error disappear ?
Last but not least why there is no AR5009 on the Atheros product support ? I'm gonna do a clean install hopeing that i will solve this, i will let you know tommorow evening how it's gone !

I seem to be having the same problem here - the system claims that the driver is not properly installed (Code 10). I reinstalled the driver and it worked for a while, but after I closed the computer for a few hours, it was back to its confused state.
It is extremely frustrating to see this in a brand new computer. I'm going to erase all trace of that driver and try a fresh install.
