Links are working for me.

Try pressing CTRL+F5 to refresh the page, this may help

Only the NV drivers got eaten up in the big crash, other non drivers are fine as were kept separate.

OK, all the files on first page seem to be offline here as well..

Here is my problem: the drivers (standard, non-modded) that work for me are ATHW.SYS, but then when I find any version of the modded driver it only contains ATHR.SYS or ATHR.INF (opposed to ATHW.INF). Why is this? - Win XP here

The strangest thing is that I used Win7 for many years and the modded driver that I had uses athR, and it worked just fine.

I can't "update driver" because it doesn't start the adapter, and I can't do a fresh install either because the adapter won't work. Where could I find a modded driver which is based on athW and not athR? Why I'm having this difference in XP from 7? Am I missing something? Would appreciate if you could reupload the drivers to a Google Drive folder, or Mega.nz folder.


Confirmed, links offline... If you want, just reupload these versions here and I will reupload them to other hosting sites and post the links here. You can send me through email if you don't wanna much hassle, I sent you through private message. The Atheros page is gone forever and your forum page is our only source for these precious files, let's not play catch here ok?

v7.7.0.259 with modded INF v1.26 for both WinXP x86 and x64

v7.6.1.184 with modded INF v1.23 for both WinXP x86 and x64

v7.6.1.170 with modded INF v1.21 for both WinXP x86 and x64

A thing that I find weird is that I downloaded multiple versions of the modded INF, but all of them contain only the ath(R).sys (and I need ath(W).sys). I tried replacing text inside the INF and could install the driver, but then no connectivity at all, even though it appeared just fine under Device Manager. I just need the manual antenna selection, that's all :( :( :( AR5007EG here (device 001C)

DO NOT adjust pcieaspm setting to either 1 or 3 !! this could possibly cause the error to happen again (not the actual fix but part of it)

what you mean?

After 14 years I can't remember the reason but surely it was a good warning to heed to

I've not looked back at Win7 since I've been a BETA tester since the Longhorn days and usually a version of Windows ahead
Been an avid Intel WLAN fanboy for many years
I can't be of any help sorry as I seem to have forgotten a lot over the years
