LW Atheros chipset and drivers from Sweex are absolutely not the ones as in this post, but I had to do something desperation My wife got a Toshiba Satellite last year and we haven’t been able to get the Atheros Wx chipset to work with our router at all. Anyway – Yesterday, when taking a fresh look at the issue, I somehow found myself directed to an AirLink Technical Support Page for a possible solution. The buggy drivers really need to be fixed, because these fine cards are getting the flak. You say your laptop freezes as soon as you plug the card in, so it’s probably loading the wrong driver immediately.

Get rid ar52112 that, windlws you might make some progress. Problem solved It’s worth mentioning that the Atheros cards work beautifully when winfows good driver’s found. While it sounds stupid, this was what I had to do with my WGv2, to get it do do anything at all in the computer that didn’t seem to like it.

By now, I have tried numerous drivers that all claimed to support the AR chipset under Windows XP, but they all had the same problems; with some of them, the lockups would stay away a little longer, and I could even do a small download, but eventually, they would all cause the system to lock up. Many, many, many thanks to AirLink for this great driver! I’ve tried various drivers and updates, even uninstalled an windows update, as they say on the netgear support site.


I know how to do the device manager thing, however, when im in device manager, i dont see the card. I dunno why but all the other Atheros drivers simply didn’t work right for me. Checking Emails winfows Skype were both working most of the time with the original TP-Link drivers, but surfing the web and in particular starting any download would freeze the system completely.

Download selected Qualcomm Atheros wireless driver v7.6.0.224 for AR5004G and Windows XP

Join the community here. I downloaded the two driver versions I found there: Since i’ve installed SP2 wg stopped connecting to my wi-fi router. Im running XP Serv Pk 3. Since the working driver implements the standard, and does not support any non-standard, proprietary extensions, it will not go beyond 54 Mbps. I find performance outstanding, weak signal throughput in particular is far superior to any other card I’ve ever tried.

I joined techspot just to save others a lot of work. The driver mentioned here being an Atheros driver should probably work with a wide variety of other Atheros cards too, Atheros implement a more or less ‘one size fits all’ driver policy. In fact, this problem is apparently not even unique to Atheros chipsets; similar issues seem to arise with, e. I have two cards, a dlink and a lucent technologies.
