Can't find WiFI network with AR5BXB72


Recommended Posts


I've got Dell 1720 Laptop with one Intel 3945ABG.

So, I managed to install one Atheros AR5BXB72 on windows 7 x64.

At the begining, the Atheros is recognised by windows (as AR5008X), and a driver is installed.

But, it's impossible to find any network and I tried many drivers from : 2.0.075 and 9.1 and modded version.

The WiFI led is now on, and I can switch it on or off with modded driver 9.1.

I don't understand why it's impossible to managed to work properly.

Thanks in advance for your help.

In the device manager is the device driver started ?

It may show an error there, even though the driver may have installed with no errors.

You may have gotten your self a HP/Lenovo version which has a whitelisted Firmware (only works with HP or Lenovo)

Thanks a lot for your reply.

All seems to work perfectly in device manager.

I bought this device on eBay from notebooklite and carefully I've chosen one working for any laptop except HP and IBM.

I don't understand what's happen.

I’m searching for solution on internet; other people seem to have such disappointment

Thanks again.
