Hi, 

 

My wireless network adapter just ceases to function randomly, I've installed different drivers, and nothing worked. 

 

It just seems to have some sort of curse at this moment, where the symptoms are usually:

 

1 - Windows just starts to choke up, as though it's handling a lot of CPU/Disk-based tasks, where its not, 

2 - The Wireless Network Adapter itself shows up as disconnected from the Wifi network,

3 - No Wifis can be scanned for from this point onwards,

 

I usually disable it, enable it, it functions fine again for a random portion of time (can be hours, can be 5 minutes). 

 

Rebooting the PC seems to make the adapter itself function again, if enabling/disabling doesn't help it.

 

My WAN Adapter is an: Atheros AR9285 

 

Can somebody help me figure this out, or get to the correct set of drivers?

 

Thanks, and I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong section.

 

Regards!

Hi, 

 

Tried installing 'win7-10.0.0.336-whql', and I had to boot in safe mode to change the drivers back to 'Atheros_Win7_64_Z920446', since it was blocking my Windows 7 from booting up.

 

Still need help... thanks!

 

Cheers
