I have purchased a notebook Pavilion g6 g6-2279sa and since it will be used by an elderly person needed to reinstall windows 7. I have managed to reinstall windows 7, but the drivers for the network hardware has not been installed.
The drivers I require are for the Qualcomm Atheros AR9000 Series Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows 7 (not 8). I suspect that the original drivers are sp60642.exe and that they only apply to Windows 8.
Unfortunately I cannot find any drivers that can be installed on this laptop using Windows 7.
Would you please be so kind to let me know where I can find the appropriate drivers?
Thanks in advance and kind regards

All of the W7 x64 drivers from this model will work on that one.
You will find the link to the Atheros driver under the networking section.
