    Hello,

    When i click on Network adress

    when I change the value of my wifi card network adress, I get a BSOD (blue screen of death). I like a wifi card Dell Wireless 1901 802.11 / a / b / g / n

    I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 Dell Oem


    I have another laptop with the same wireless card under Windows 8.1, and when I change the value newtork adress with Windows 8.1 I do not have this problem.

    otherwise the wireless card on the market is called Qualcomm atheros 9462

    Once back the value Windows 7 x64 SP1 I get a blue screen with athrx.sys

    above the message athrx.sys I STOP message: 0x0000007E


    All my drivers and Windows Update is up to date what should I do?

    Thanks for advance for you help.

    Check the Dev_ID of the card and update to the latest. Which driver version are you using?

    Since you have already focused on the root cause and have had no improvement with updated drivers, etc., it is very likely the issue is caused by more than one conflict (or other damaged/corrupt/missing system files.
    If you have "added" Windows 7 Ultimate to this laptop, is it from a verified clean source?
    I would clean install Windows 7 from a trusted source, update your drivers and Windows to current.
    You will most likely find your BSOD issue is completely gone...then start adding your software and testing the network as each are completed after a reboot.
    You will either find a conflict/culprit that triggers the BSOD again, or the BSOD problem is gone for good, in such case the cause of your problem was 'system related' and fixed with your new clean install.
    Yes this will take a few hours, but I'm sure you already have many more hours vested in trying to fix this problem.
    IMHO start over with a clean install and your issue will be fixed for good.
