Atheros AR5700 b/g, actualizacion de driver para resolver problemas de conectividad

Comparte:

Hace unos dias, una nueva clienta me entrega un portatil HP Pavilion DV6000 (DV6825es, mas concretamente), es un portatil veterano, con Vista 32, con unos 6 años de uso domestico, bien cuidado y con el software de fabrica instalado. Nunca se le habia tocado nada, y el portatil esta nuevo la verdad, se nota el paso del tiempo ya que con programas actuales les cuesta un poco tirar, pero soportable.

El caso es que me comenta, aparte de otros problemas o dudas, que no se puede conectar a la WIFI de su negocio, una red WIFI de Movistar con el cifrado de serie del router, el portatil reconoce la red, nos deja meter la clave pero sale un error de que no se puede conectar.

Le comento a mi nueva clienta que me voy a llevar el equipo al taller para hacer pruebas y echarle un viztazo general a nivel de software, que al dia siguiente se lo llevo reparado.

Y aqui que me pongo yo a conectarme a mi wifi del taller y que el cabron tampoco queria, detecta todas las redes pero no es capaz de conectarse. La tarjeta wifi del equipo es una Atheros AR5700 b/g, con driver de HP de 2007, me voy a la web de hp y encuentro un driver mas moderno, del 2008, pero esto no soluciona el problema.

Como no queria abrir el equipo aun para cambiar la tarjeta wifi, me di una vuelta por Google y como os imaginais, la solucion estaba alli, os copio y pego lo que encontre, ya que describe perfectamente lo mismo que yo os acabo de contar, ademas teneis los drivers actuales para XP/Vista/7:

Atheros Wireless Adapter – AR5007EG & AR5007
Over the last three or so years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK. 
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router – we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

— 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and “update driver.” 

— 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer’s web site support section, 

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will see if we can find a link to the driver and will post a reply with the link here.

— 3) On one occasion re-setting the router back to factory default and re-configuring the router settings has resolved the issue 

— 4) The majority of members, have now used the drivers from the atheros driver site, which has resolved the issue.

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

Assuming that after all the above the wireless still does not connect to the internet, all I can suggest is to use wireless security of WEP or to get an external USB wireless card. 

Please post a reply here , and keep us informed of the situation and how you finally resolved the issue.

Dicho y hecho, me descargue el paquete de drivers para Vista 32, y tras su actualizacion, la tarjeta ya funciona correctamente con cifrados WPA/WPA2.
