Atheros wireless card compatibility problem

I have a problem with a Qualcomm Atheros AR5B93 wireless card in a Packerd Bell Easynote LM81 running Win7 Home pro so decided to replace it and by (my) mistake bought an Atheros AR5B95 instead. Does anyone know if this is reverse compatible as when installing it gets detected as new hardware but I then getr an error message saying it didn't install correctly and a network cable is broken or disconnected. I have tried downloading drivers but result is the same. When I reinstall the original card it connects to the web ok, other than starting malfunctioning later as per original problem. Thanks for your help.
