i just formatted my vista ready laptop today and went to XP. the problem was my laptop never came with any disks, just a vista product recovery cd.

That a side with some help in this thread click here i was able to at least get my gfx card working.

My problem is that in Network Connections my atheros adapter is not listed. Ive tried downloading drivers but am at a loss of how to install them.

Please help me get my wireless adapter back on, its important for my work.

This appears to be quite a problem, had i know it so difficult to get the drivers up and running. Vista is no good, i had to go back to XP.

Why cant i get a driver for my wireless card? i need this bad. hopefully no later then tomorrow. i have scanned google, toshiba, atheros sites. i simply need a driver/setup program to:

click here

The one at the bottom of the page is for your chipset. Click Download, at the next screen wait for a few moments until the download warning appears and then you can download the file.

Extract the zip file to a folder, go into the folder and double-click Setup.exe

Don't bother scrolling all the way down , the same chipset is catered for on the top , and it's the latest driver as well , 4th Feb 2008 .

Yes, sorry, my mistake.

  Ashrich 23:14 18 Apr 2008

Was loking at the Vista drivers , the latest one for XP is still at the top , but dated 19th Feb 2008 .

i managed to find it, i was getting a bit angry with it all, i hate vista so much, infact it is worse than windows 3.1!

Thanks again MCE2K5 and apologies brundle if you feel you wasted your time.
