Re: Atheros 5007 802.11 B/G Wifi adapter bug with WPA

hi Paul, have searched all around the internets for any solution but cant find anything. :smileysad:

 

I have same problem with Atheros  AR5007 802.11 b/g adapter. I dl'ed the link above and installed...would the adapter name change? b/c its still the same so I assume it just updated it. 

 

Any other solutions? I saw where a guy changed to 2.4ghz from 5 or something but I can't even log into the router to mess with any of that stuff.

Hi:

 

I don't have any other ideas for you to try. The adapter name wouldn't change. Just the driver version would change and you can see the driver information by clicking on the device in the device manager and click on the driver tab.

Connect your notebook with router using ethernet (lan) connection.

This solution did not work. From what I can tell this Wireless card does not support WPA2. Is this true?
