Oh thanks, could you please help me to add my wlan pci card to the installable .ini if possible. I have some info on my card like the device ID.

I would very much appreciate your help.

The INF should work for all AR chipsets, EXCEPT USB ones, these require special drivers as in another link.

It doesn't have my wireless PCI card in the INF though... which may be why it has a serious problem when it's not connected to router.

Could someone add my device to the INF or advise me on how to do it please? Here's info on the card:

Device Properties

Device Description NETGEAR WG311 802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter

Bus Type PCI

Bus / Device / Function 3 / 1 / 0

Device ID 168C-0013

Subsystem ID 1385-4900

Device Class 0200 (Ethernet Controller)

Revision 01

Fast Back-to-Back Transactions Supported, Disabled

Device Features

66 MHz Operation Not Supported

Bus Mastering Disabled

Here's link to the inf and driver

mobilenvidia will you help me please?

I've had a look at your setup.

Device ID: 168C-0013

Is supported in the modded INF, so using this you should be able to install the newer drivers

Which modded INF do I need and can I use it with the athw.sys Version 7.7.0.481 that I downloaded?

Thanks mate.

What OS are you using a little confusing, were in the XP thread and you mentioned Win 7 Earlier.

You can try and of the Modded drivers that suits your OS.

The driver is included with the INF download

You will need to update the driver manually via Device Manager.

I'm using XP, I was running both at one point but now just XP. So if I use the modded INF for XP (v7.7.0.259 with modded INF v1.26 for both WinXP x86 and x64 is the latest I assume) then will I be able to use my athw.sys v7.7.0.481 driver? If I can't then can I add my device into the INF file that came with my 7.7.0.481 or will that not work?

Your device is in there, if it doesn't work then there is little hope.

Latest Driver Version 7.7.0.481 for XP (7.7.0.498 don't work on my XP, must be vista only)

Download here.

It's working without issues for me. I just had to add my NETGEAR 54 Mbps Wireless PCI Adapter WG311 into the .inf before installing/updating the driver. :)

I have windows XP PRO. I also have a Atheros AR5BXB72 wireless card. I've seen AR5008 associated with it but it doesn't say AR5008 on the chipset. You have a long list of downloads but I'm not sure which is the one I need. Any suggestions? I'd also appreciate you pointing me in the right direction for installing this. I've tried other downloads but they wouldn't install. thanks in advance
