Atheros AR5007 with WPA WPA2 Issues

/ June 17th, 2011/ Posted in Desktop / 7 Comments »


After much troubleshooting it appears that Atheros AR5007 would not connect to any network with WPA/WPA2 encryption.


I had to download an Atheros driver that was not listed on the Laptop Manufactures website. I found the driver at

This driver is listed at and works with Vista 64 Bit. I have not tried it on other versions because I have no need to try.

    Thank you very much, same issue, HP/Compaq laptop wouldn’t connect to my new router with WPA/WPA2 security enabled, upgraded Atheros driver to this version, restarted laptop and now it connects to Internet just fine, your work in coming up with this solution is much appreciated.

    I’ve been trying to solve this problem for hours. I’ve downloaded a lot of different drivers from HP site and none would work. Finally this one worked!! 4 pages into google findings. Thanks.
