I accidentally deleted from regedit my realtek drivers for my "atheros ar9285 802.11 b/g/n wifi adapter" for my laptop. I am on vacation, and cannot access my recovery disks (which I left at home) for another month or so. Short of buying a new set of recovery disks on the Internet, can anyone send me a disk with these drivers on it so I can access the wifi that is available to me? Unless it is possible to download the drivers to a jumpdrive so I can than put them on my laptop. Thanks. My laptop is a compaq presario cq56-115dx.

Realtek and Atheros are two completely separate manufacturer's.

Recovery Discs wipe out your system and take you back to the original factory state, pretty sure that's not what you want to use anyway.

The place to get drivers for your HP/Compaq laptop for free is the HP website: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=4308201#N418
Download the drivers either by plugging the laptop in with an Ethernet cable or use another computer and transfer the driver download with a USB drive.

Your laptop has drivers listed for Windows XP and Windows 7 32-bit/64-bit, and you didn't mention which Windows version it's running.

Based on what you said above, you might want to download and save both the Atheros wireless driver and the Realtek ethernet driver for the Windows version in your laptop.

It's possible you may need to reinstall both drivers.
