I joined techspot atheros ara to save others a lot of work. The laptop always freezes. Posted October 7, Posted October 17, Don’t forget to get an 11abgn router as the i only does 11n Mbps in 11a band, 11g maxes out athegos Mbps.


I search a driver for this Card. Competitive products wireless lan card new arrival recommended products network card which is selling hot in the world.

No more mousing around, no more keyboarding, no more nothing – the only option would be to hit the RESET button.

Getting Atheros AR5212 Wireless Cards to Work with Windows XP

I am testing out Vista x64 on my laptop and have used your latest 1. I have one switch Atheroa GS and am going to get one more to have all my rooms connected atyeros gigabit. 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.

I’m going to migrate my network to gigabit on the wired side to, so as to ensure best performance to the WLAN. You are the inf aatheros KING!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t guarantee compatability with older chipsets. In my case, there’s no point in trying to go beyond the standard Mbps connection speed, since I’m running a mixed-vendor configuration: Atheros AR5B97 driver not letting me connect to wireless Jun 20, I have issues some times with logging in to the router with it set to ‘auto’ and ‘B’ works much better.

Posted October 18, Is there a way to fix that? I try to install this, http: I registered just to thank you for this driver!

Ra5212a changing the receive buffers then transmit buffers then map registers down to around ’64’ if the device properties will let you. The specified location does not contain any information about your driver? Parity error for Atheros cards on some systems well at least the i anyway. Posted October 22, Posted October 14, You say your laptop freezes as soon as you plug the card in, so it’s probably loading the wrong driver immediately. I clicked Have disk Thanks mate, I really appreciate your efforts and they couldn’t have come at a better a5r212a I have my eye on the D Link router you suggested once it is available.

You don’t run a sys file. 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. Now, everything works fine! Failing this set ad5212a device to legacy 11b and work your way up.
