Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g adapter on Compaq Presario A931NR + Belkin Basic Router F7D1301 v1 (01)

Hello Support Forum

Problem with Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g adapter on Compaq laptop running Vista

Compaq Presario A931NR + Belkin Basic Router F7D1301 v1 (01)

Belkin told me I need to update the driver of my Atheros adapter in order to use WPA/WPA2.  I may only use WEP with the factory installed Atheros AR5007 802.11.b/g WiFi Adapter.  Device Manager reports the driver software for your device is up to date.

Atheros AR5007 802.11.b/g WiFi Adapter

Driver Provider: Atheros Communication Inc

Driver Version: 7.3.201.25

Driver Date:  05/30/2007

File Version:  7.3.1.25 built by WinDDK

Might there be an update for my Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g adapter
All replies most welcome  :smileyhappy:

TIA

Hi:

 

There is a much newer driver that hopefully will fix all of your issues:

Hi:

 

It will work on any Atheros card model listed in any notebook.

 

Supported Devices and Features
Atheros AR5006 802.11a/b/g WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR5009 802.11a/g/n WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR9380 802.11 a/g/n WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR9382 802.11a/g/n WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR9485 802.11 b/g/n WiFi Adapter

 

It doesn't even have to be an HP notebook.

 

If you don't install this driver, you will have to live with what you have.

 

I am surprised it even connects to the internet.

Hello Paul

Curious, do you have the option to mark the Topic as Solved. 

As the OP ... I know I did not mark the Topic as Solved. .

My issue was not solved.  My WiFi was lost as a result of installing SP54972

 

sm09 issue may have been solved.    My issue is not. 

sm09 posted no system information

Did you mark the Topic as Solved

Yes, I do, and yes I did.

 

Sorry I did not read who posted that answer(that seemed to work for me), and assumed it was you.
