    Qualcomm Atheros Drivers?


    Hi,

    Is there a new network adapter for windows 10 that is Qualcomm Atheros? I have the version AR9485 and I think the version was 10.0.0.132.

    The reason I am saying this is because my Wifi does not work (only on my Asus computer.) I am sending this from my phone. When I troubleshoot, it says 'default gateway not available.' I know I need a newer (tried older ones, no luck) version (network adapter) but I can't access it and whenever I try with my phone, it's just a big jumble of words I really can't read well.

    Thanks,
    Windoge

    Give me a few minutes to fire up my laptop, and I'll tell you what I have, as my Wifi works(also ASUS the X54C)

    Hm. I did some research and apparently, there is an AR9592. I'm not sure if it works (Windows 10) or if it's real (got from wiki site). I'll check and update.

    Newer is not always better when it comes to drivers, best for Win10 is, if there isn't any at your laptops support, then the Windows 8 version. But in any case I would go to ASUS laptop model page and get the driver there, because it's tweak for your specific model, and generic ones sometime make things worse.

    Hey Cliff, quick question: do Windows 8 drivers work on Windows 10? Because AR9592 is win 7,8 and others

    "Theoretically" all Win8 drivers should run on Ten.
