Atheros Wireless 1525 WLAN Mini Card Drivers

[ Edited ]

Hi, I got an Atheros Wireless 1525 WLAN Mini Card from a Dell Inspiron 580 computer, and was hoping to transfer it to my HP Pavilion a1510n.  The thing is, I need the drivers for it.  I tried looking on Google, but I can only find them for Dell computers.

I have Windows XP Home Media Center if that helps.

So if someone could find me the drivers, I would deeply appreciate it Smiley Happy

Yes I've tried many of the drivers on the Dell website, and they do not work.

I believe it is because the drivers they supply are Dell only.

But what I need, is one that is universal, or for other PC manufactures like my HP.

Why didn't the Dell drivers work?

Re: Atheros Wireless 1525 WLAN Mini Card Drivers

I'm sorry for the delay.

So when I click setup after I download the driver, it says "The installer can not run on this platform. Please select package for your operating system."

Try using Universal Extractor or 7-ZIP to extract the driver out of the Dell installer exe.
