Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Driver won't work on windows XP
 
I installed Windows XP over my Vista Home operating system. I have installed pretty much all the drivers I have needed. However, I have been unable to get the Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Driver to work. I have installed several different drivers for this and the computer recognizes it. However, it won't work. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Welcome to LQ!

LQ = LinuxQuestions.org, not WindowsQuestions.org ...

Your post is in the Linux - Newbie section of LQ. Maybe if it was
put in General they could let it ride. We are here to help with
your Linux problems, not Windows problems.

That said, grab the CD that came with your Atheros wireless card,
or go online to the manufacturer's website and download the driver.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in <GENERAL> and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

Perhaps he's just using WinXP to install GNU/Linux with the madwifi drivers:

http://goodbye-microsoft.com/

Getting wireless to work:

m-a prepare
m-a a-i madwifi
modprobe ath_pci

Ecrypted:
#! /bin/bash
iwconfig ath0 key <your_encryption_key_here>
dhclient ath0

Hotspots:
#! /bin/bash
ifconfig ath0 up
iwconfig ath0 ap any
dhclient ath0

...not likely though, but it does make his wireless work ;-)
