Do you want to continue installing this driver? And look, the thing is running with the Airlink drivers as suggested the card has an ARA or something like that. LW Atheros chipset and drivers from Sweex are absolutely not the ones as in this post, but I had to do something desperation First of all, completely uninstall any other drivers you may have tried for your card. 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:

It was a nothing less than a disaster: 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. Anyway, the link below gives instructions on how to remove ‘hidden’ devices in device manager. Thanks to your info my new WiFi is working now. Select your Atheros card, right-click, and select ‘update driver’. 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.
Getting Atheros AR5212 Wireless Cards to Work with Windows XP
Checking Emails and Skype were winsows working most of the time with the original TP-Link drivers, but surfing the web and in particular starting any download would freeze the system completely.
I find performance outstanding, weak signal throughput in particular is far superior to any other card I’ve ever tried.
Many, many, many thanks to AirLink for this great driver! I hope other folks that are saddled with the functionless Atheros and the drivers that come with them will read your post and get them working. Even so, a working, Mbps connection is infinitely better than a consistently crashing Mbps windowa Get rid of that, and you might make some progress. I clicked Have disk Join the community here.

Hello Luvr, I am ready to pull my hair out. My wife got a Toshiba Satellite last year and we haven’t been able to get the Atheros Wx chipset to work with our router at all. Windows gave me an Update Driver Warning, telling me that Installing this device driver is not recommended because Windows cannot verify that it is compatible with your hardware.
In at5212 case, there’s no point in trying to go beyond the standard Mbps connection speed, since I’m running a mixed-vendor configuration: Here’s a list of their drivers if you would like to refer to them: Problem solved It’s worth mentioning that the Atheros cards work beautifully when a good driver’s found. The laptop always freezes.
Since the system would be unstable with winodws that Windows did consider “compatible” with my hardware, I thought, “What the heck!
Atheros AR5B97 driver not letting me connect to wireless Jun 20, You say your laptop freezes as soon as you plug the card in, so it’s probably loading the wrong driver immediately.
So i am guessing that for the Wgt ar2512 support would be a driver thing with an additional feature called frame burst?
Since the working driver implements the standard, and does not support any non-standard, proprietary extensions, it will not go beyond 54 Mbps. The winows location does not contain any information about your driver? Thank you, Luvr for taking the time to write up your findings.
LW Atheros chipset and drivers from Sweex are absolutely not the ones as in this post, but Iwndows had to do something desperation I tend to agree with them for the most part.
