I've been using the new driver for a month now and it is quite a bit more stable than the previous version. As @fabertawe correctly points out, the 4 second glitch is now pretty much gone.

The biggest problem is not the driver tho. Heat is the enemy. I have to move the dongle from one side of the laptop to the other periodically, as it gets quite hot. This has the effect of cooling the dongle down again, for a while ... as the unused slot acts as a heat sink, drawing off the excess heat, until it too gets hot ...

The problem with high transfer speeds is always heat. If anyone comes up with an efficient, silent and small heat dissipation device, they will become rather rich :)

I suffered from the "4 second bug" a LOT and have not noticed it yet, so far with r12. So a massive improvement for me - thanks.

@capoeira: I have been using this for a few days, and I have to say it works very well for me. I did not have a lot of problems with r9 either, but r12 works at least as well.

I am still afraid to update since r9 is working very well for me

After using this a few days: I see no regressions. Driver seems to be more stable, although I still got occasional connectivity issues it seems to happen more seldom.

Just pushed the new version, please let me know of any problems.

If you package it, we can test it immediately. :-)

Apologies for the lateness, I am currently travelling and will have a more stable situation in the near future. That said, I think I can package this one soon considering there have been no issues reported. However I will not be in a position to personally test it until end August. I trust your wise judgment guys!

How goes the investigations? Are driver version more stable? (I have recurring connection issues with the present version.)
