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. It was a worthwhile learning experience though. I’ve tried various drivers and updates, even uninstalled an windows update, as they say on the netgear support site. I am running Ubuntu Feisty, If there is anything else I can do to help troubleshoot this please let me know. On the “Support” page click on “Downloads”.

The result of all this is I have a lot of respect for the company or somebody within for taking action and fixing the problem.

The rpm drive was loaded with This file describes the network interfaces available on your system and how to activate them. It uses an AR chip. I’ve been experiencing the same problem for some time, on two different setups: The website is kept online for historic purposes only. By now, I have tried numerous drivers that all claimed to support the AR chipset under Windows XP, but they atheros communications ar had the same problems; atheros communications ar 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.


I dunno why but all the other Atheros drivers simply didn’t work right for me. I include most of the info shown in earlier bug reports.

Select Qualcomm Atheros wireless driver

Things just going and going, good, bad, and otherwise. No more mousing around, no more keyboarding, no more nothing – the only option atheroos be to hit the RESET button. Like Mic sings, “You can’t always get what you want. Did you actually try to turn ANI off, or did you just use the new version the way you did with the old?

Many, many, many thanks to AirLink for this great driver! Sometimes bugs are that specific.

I’ve tried various drivers and updates, even uninstalled an windows update, ar521 they say on the netgear support site. The only driver i can install is that from Fujitsu Siemens. So much to be amazed by around here. The modded INF does support your card, can’t tell what will happen as it does try to 11n settings it should just ignore this. Also, “invalid nwid” means “packet with a different SSID” and it isn’t an error, it just means you are sharing the channel with neighbors.

If i try to aatheros in the Device Manager the Driver this happens.

Can’t get Qualcomm Atheros AR5212 802.11abg NIC to work

Whatever changed in atherso latest 1 or 2 releases of madwifi or wpa has definitively caused changes to the ability of the driver to get good signal strength. Then reboot, and pop the card in, remembering to go through the process above for installing a specific driver when the new hardware is found.


The main problem is signal strength and the ability to hold a connection. In my case, there’s no point in trying to go beyond the standard Mbps connection speed, since I’m ar212 a mixed-vendor configuration: The distances involved are 15 meters or less.
