You can download the driver from your laptop manufacturer support site.

According to Wikidevi that card uses the AR5007EG chipset. As FreeBooter posted, check your computer's support site. What OS, Windows 10? Windows 10 would be using it's own drivers on that chipset.

According to Wikidevi it uses the AR5007EG. The Wikidevi page provided a Windows driver link. It seems the only drivers available for AR5007EG are Windows 7 and 8 drivers. Windows 10 is not available.

It's an Acer Aspire One ZA3 with XP I have to repair.

 

I tried installing this driver: https://www.ath-drivers.eu/download-driver-nr-60-for-atheros-AR5007EG-and-WindowsXP.html

 

But it says that it cannot start.

Please confirm the chipset. In Device Manager is there a yellow exclamation mark next to your Wifi adapter or does Device Manager say it's functioning?

 

If a yellow exclamation mark is next to the Wifi Adapter right click the device, select Properties, and under the Details tab select Hardware IDs. Copy and post the first line.

 

When you say you did a repair are you talking about an in-place repair? XP is at SP3, correct?
