Windows 7: Atheros drivers

Atheros drivers

I do a lot of Blue Screen crash debugging in the Crashes and Debugging forums. One set of drivers that I can never seem to find is the Atheros set of drivers for wireless cards. What is the most reliable site to find these?

I have yet to find them on http://partner.atheros.com/Drivers.aspx or http://www.qca.qualcomm.com/ and have often tried ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros?????) but it concerns me that it is a Czech site and that it is unofficial since most of the people updating the drivers are from the US and the company appears to be from the US.

Obviously the best place to get them is from the vendor of the computer or device, but sometimes this is not feasible. I figured I'd ask the drivers experts: where do you find Atheros drivers?

ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows. Had no problems with this.

To find atheros drivers is little tricky because the main website is down.

http://www.atheros-drivers.com/

Thats why all other websites with atheros drivers are connected\linked in http://www.atheros.cz/

I found a link on Computer driver update Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter Windows 7 64 bit but that site requires membership to download.
