    I have an Asus N10E laptop that won't properly connect wirelessly, Windows home ver 2002 installed, Atheros AR5007EG wireless adapter, ATT DSL modem, and Cisco Linksys E2000 wireless router. My other computers connect without difficulty. Connection says it is authenticated and excellent but browsere won't load - "Can't resolve domain name". Any ideas. I also tried to download the TSGSysInfo but avast! says it has a virus.

    you need to update the driver

    try the atheros site itself
    Drivers for the other windows operating system
    You need to look down the page for your particular adapter model and then look across the columns to find your windows version.
    Now click on the blue tick mark in the column under your windows version.
    This will open another page for that particular adapter and that windows version.

    Now click on the download button labelled " Click to Download " and wait, the file will download - you do not need to click on any other buttons to get the download started

    To install the driver you will need to do the following

    Extract the downloaded zip file into a folder on the PC

    For XP;

    >Click Start
    >right-click My Computer
    >click Properties.
    The System Properties window opens.
    >Click the Hardware tab,
    >then click Device Manager button.
    The Device Manager window opens.
    >Double-click Display adapters.
    >Right-click on the AR5007(EG) Adapter
    >click Update Driver
    The Hardware Update Wizard opens and asks to connect to Windows Update:
    > select No, not this time. Click Next
    >Select the following option: Install from a list or specific location (Advanced), and then click Next.
    >Select the Don’t search, I will choose the driver to install option, and then Next
    >Click the Have Disk button, and then click the Browse button
    Browse to the directory where you unzipped the file you downloaded
    Locate and highlight the .inf file
    AR5007 and AR5007EG XP-32bit = netathwx.inf
    >Click the OK button.
    >Click the Finish button when done.
