What operating system are you using? The answer may depend on the OS.

I am also waiting for an answer. Unfortunately my laptop has this NIC card as well.

Please if you have the answer, pls post here.

I've got the same issue. VLAN's get stripped off. I'm using Windows 7 64bit.

It doesn't work for me. Did anyone try this on Atheros interface?
