a problem im having with my Acer 6920G, basically the network card is an Atheros AR2181, and ive been having problems with it since day 1.
Basically the drivers it came with (18.104.22.168) would cause my internet connection to "suffer" limited connectivity every 5 minutes or so which would srop download speeds to around 1 kb/s. I thought i should upgrade drivers to the latest which are the 22.214.171.124/9 drivers, i thought i had fixed the problem as for the first 10 minutes or so it was working fine, and then suddenly my pc froze and the screen went funny with lines running across the whole thing, as if it was an overheating issue.
To solve this i bought a USB network card, which works fine but takes up a USB slot and gives me slow download speed of around 20 - 100 kb/s compared to over 10 Mb/s in some cases with the Atheros.
I have an HP G71 laptop with an Atheros AR9285 WiFi adapter. I am trying to connect to a Netgear WGT624v3 router. It was working but stopping. I can connect with other wireless devices and my laptop has good signal strength of the network. I was hiding the SSID but I turn it back on. This did not fix the problem. I had an access list set up in the router but turned this feature off. This did not fix the problem. I turn off my Norton firewall. This did not fix the problem. When I ran the update driver, it said the drivers were up to date. When I ran the diagnostics on the adapter, it said the network connection was not connected to the adapter.
Anyone try out the Wireless N Atheros card from Gigabyte? I think it's pretty new. Having a hard time finding anything on it. If so, any comments? I just got a GN-WI01GT today for my M1710 and am already feeling like an upgrade.

I have been having problem with Atheros ar5009 on dv5 for the last two weeks. I did clean install and it didnt help. I tried almost everything on the web to solve the problem but no luck. I just called Hp tech support today but they want me to do the system recovery but I couldnt do it because I did the clean install.
I am thinking of replacing it with different wireless card. I don't know what is compatible with my system. I have amd turion x2 2.1 ghz. the wireless uses pci-e slot. can anyone recommend me a wireless card that will work with my laptop beside atheros?
well my laptops card melted recently and since my waranty is up i want to get a new one but the "offical" acer repairshop say that it costs 260$ (3650 512 ram) and i simply dont believe them as i have had problems with them in the past if anyone can help and tell me the price or some newer one that might be cheaper and have the same power.
Ive been having playing my games thought, every time I play my driver crashes. so i try to update my nvidia driver which the laptop came with, now i go to nvidia scan my driver and says i got to download the update from acer. So i look for it and i search for it...downloading the setup...and i extract it...and two files are corrupt...anyways, is that happening for anyone else or the site is down or something.
Recently bought a Acer Aspire Nitro v15 with windows 8.1 with a qualcomm atheros ar5bwb222 wireless network card. The connection is really unstable and often disconnects and have very few bars. This is not from the router since the connection on my phone and other computers are fine. The connection (when i have it) is also really slow compared to when i use my phone on the same network. I tried updating the drivers but it says my latest drivers are installed. Could this be a Windows 8.1 problem? this is my first time owning a windows 8.1 computer.
I've got an Acer Aspire 5315 which is paying up merry hell. We 'backgraded' to WinXP Pro because Vista sucks donkey balls.
According to hardware scans the machine has got an Atheros AR5007EG wifi module (though on the back of the shell it says it'a an Atheros AR5BXB63 which means it's an AR5006 not 5007 - not sure what diff that would make).
The issue is this: if I connect to my home wifi router, the acer stays connected for three minutes (sometimes 3 minutes and 5 seconds), then TCPIP (event 4201) appears in the Event Viewer-> indicating that the device has connected again. It does this twice (three minutes between events), and on the third event throws an event 4202 indicating that the card has disconnected. Wireless light is flickering constantly.
I have scanned for malware, and driver scans tell me that the firmware for the Atheros card is up to date.
Has anybody else had a similar problem? My next adventure will be to remove the wifi module completely and use a USB dongle for wifi access.
I'm going to try a new AR5BXB63 driver that I just downloaded from a third source, but I don't hold out much hope, frankly.
One more thing - when the Acer cuhcks a spazz, it drags down the whole wifi network is I use our 2Wire 2701HGV-W, but doesn't if I use an old SpeedStream 4200 modem and dLink DI524-UP wifi router. How's that for odd?
I got my Acer Aspire 5050 by September 2007 and filled it with many applications already until I found that its performance was depressing. Then I decided to format my computer and re-install the Windows.
After re-install everything, I just found out that I got a separated CD for the wireless adapter (Atheros AR5007EG + Realtek Ethernet) from the reseller. But I already installed the driver from the original Acer CD.
But it appears that the wireless doesn't work properly as the figures for Received/ Sent packet data are very extreme (this morning I tried and they were 126/ 6) <=- is this a problem? It also got timed out when I tried to connect to my home server, which is located just a staircase away, from my room.
When I go online downstairs, putting my laptop 2 metres from the router, the connection is going just fine.
I tred to install the driver from the separated CD and even searched for the newest update of the device on the internet, but both didn't really help. I got good connection only after I installed the drivers. But after I turned off the laptop for several hours, it couldn't connect to the internet just as before.
My internet frequently disconnects from my Aspire S3-951 notebook with Athros AR5BWB225 wireless adapter. The adapter is loaded with driver version 10.0.0.227. Is there a newer driver that will prevent the frequent disconnects?
Well, as many of you may have seen on the news (in the US anyway), Louisville, Kentucky was hit by some massive storms on August 4th.
I was unlucky enough to be on the campus at the University of Louisville, where I live in a dorm. During the rain and thunder, I was surfing the web and watching a little TV to pass the time due to canceled classes.
All of a sudden there was a bright flash, and a loud crack and boom. I had later been informed that the building was hit by that particular bolt of lightning.
At the same time as the flash, my laptop completely froze, forcing me to hard reboot. Nothing else in the room was affected. Lights didn't flicker once, TV never skipped a beat. My electronics are all plugged into a quality surge protector; this and the fact that we still had power and cable, I knew there wasn't a power surge.
However, the internet was knocked out for the whole building. Come to find out today, my laptop no longer recognizes when an ethernet cable is plugged into the port, thus preventing me from connecting to any LAN; home, on campus or otherwise.
This leads me to the question: Is it possible for there to be an electrical surge carried over an ethernet cable that is strong enough to fry/disable an internal network card?
In case you're wondering, I'm currently connected via wireless. Specs are in my sig (Dell E4300).
My dv2000t came with Vista installed but Vista is now broken and gone and I want to install WinXP instead. I installed XP but XP cant find any network adapter on the laptop. I have an ethernet cable plugged in to the laptop. Prior to this there was no problem connecting to the internet with this machine. Win XP can't find the network adapter therefore I can't use the internet at all. Since this dv2000t came with Vista installed maybe the network adapter requires something not available in XP therefore you can only use it with Vista loaded.
why XP can't find any network adapter on this dv2000t?
I have a HP Pavilion dv6t-6000 CTO Quad Edition laptop and currently the WLAN network card does not support dual band connection via WiFi. I wish to upgrade the WLAN card so that it can connect to the Dual band WiFi at my house.
Any whitelist of WLAN card that I can use to upgrade my laptop? Is there a list of supported WLAN adapters?
