Atheros network adapter problem

By stacyw
Nov 3, 2008
  1. All of a sudden, my previously working wireless connection (Lynksis on a Toshiba laptop w/ Vista) isn't working. The connections is working on a different laptop just fine (Compaq /w XP). I cannot find the connection listed anywhere in my network connections, and the properties for the Atheros AR5007EG Adapter show this as status: "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. Code 43". Check for solutions isn't working....... Help please !!

    I think you need to disconnect the adapter, uninstall the drivers completely (actually delete them), reboot and re-install the drivers and device according to the manual.
