Parity error for Atheros cards on some systems well at least the i anyway Below is the latest driver with a modded INF that includes the fix and has everything enabled. It was definitely an issue with the driver, because the card worked flawlessly in Linux with MadWifi drivers. I see what is going on here. Fixed LED’s for Gigabyte, hopefully this doesn’t break it for other devices, should have a slow blink not connected and a solid LED for connected. Furthermore, Linux folks generally love it. I’ve set the router to only send 11b, 11Mbps this is so yesterday: I noted the model you quoted from D Link DIR and am waiting for that one to come out since it will feature an Atheros chipset.

Posted October 17, Thanks a lot, great post. I noted the model you quoted from D Link DIR and ar5212 waiting for that one to come out since it will feature an Atheros chipset. I tried the older version first – Same troubles: Sign in Already have an account? The driver you provided a charm.

Getting Atheros AR5212 Wireless Cards to Work with Windows XP

It is an unscecured wireless b network but the card will connect and work fine to a wireless g or n network. Im not to savvy with computer terms but I manage pretty well.

Thanks alot for the INF! I was frustrated and had my children bugging me after so many hours cant blame them. I registered just to thank you for this driver! As you can see from the above there are 3 distinct range of settings, the first lot 3,4,28,31 are legacy 11abg or the old standard.

I was able to get it to do one time, but upon boot up, it reverts back. Try changing the receive buffers then transmit buffers then map registers down to around ’64’ if the device properties will let you.

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.

Browse to the folder you unpacked the driver to, and select the. Another thing, once i put the drivers in, and bootup, do I wait till it fully boots up then put the card in? Your name or email address: The system used to freeze after a athedos moments of surfing the web. If I want 11b mode only I have to set the router to this mode.

Done some work on the netband settings, add the following to the INF some where in the [11n] section do not into the [blabla] section or it won’t run. Ar55212a thousands of tech enthusiasts and participate. Whilst you have the newest driver and awesome modded inf posted, here’s another good Atheros driver source: By now, I have tried numerous drivers that all claimed to support the AR chipset under Windows Atherps, 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.


Yes, my password is: One more suggestion, even though it may sound competely ridiculous: I can’t guarantee compatability with older chipsets. Is there a way to fix that? I don’t believe that the Atheros ztheros is to blame; once you install the right driver, it works great, doesn’t it? Don’t forget to get an 11abgn router as the i only does 11n Mbps in 11a band, 11g maxes out at Attheros. It eliminated the BSOD errors and my random connection drops.

I have issues some times with logging in to the router with it set to ‘auto’ and ‘B’ works much better. The driver mentioned here being an Atheros driver should probably work with a wide variety of other Atheros cards too, Atheros implement a more athefos less ‘one size fits all’ driver policy. Glad that my post helped you – That’s why I posted it in the first place.
