Driver Problem With Atheros AR5B97 In Win2003R2 SP2

Recommended Posts

Ok .. I've used over 3 versions of the drivers .. all install ok but then the Device Manager displays that yellow exclamation point to signal there's a problem .

I've installed another WLAN card also an that one works with no problem.

How can I get the Atheros AR5B97 chip to work?

I've formatted the OS partition and reinstalled Win2003SRV R2 SP2 2 times by now but nothing changed :(

The card works flawlessly in WinXP SP3 installed on the same PC (dual boot) so there's a OS probleme here not a hardware one. And no ... I have NO other software installed. Just the OS and drivers

Have you tried updating the drivers? Code 10 can mean only a couple of things:

- device is disabled in BIOS (its not)

- device is malfunctioning (its not)

- the driver is not correct

For example, if you were to force a NIC driver to install on an unsupported device, you can get a Code 10.

All the drivers I've installed said that they are compatible with WindowsXP or better. Now I have the latest version and I've also installed 3 other versions too with the same result.

I wonder if the driver is generic, instead of specifically written for Server 2003 R2 aka Windows v5.2. Some driver makers take a shortcut and just make them for x86, amd64 or ia64 without specifying an OS version.
