Windows 7: Atheros AR9285

Atheros AR9285

I am very new to this.. So I am going to explain the best I can and maybe someone can help me. I have a new laptop, and I filled out my specs with this forum, I have Windows 7 HP*64 bit and I also have home wireless 6.0. I have a clearwire modem running off of a Lynksys wireless modem. This morning I woke up and my computer was saying that it could not find ANY wireless connections. That is weird because I am aware that my neighbors have wifi but they are all secured. Also when I hit troubleshooting, it gives me a message saying "Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter is experiencing driver- or hardware related problems" also "Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller is experiencing problems". I have absolutly NO IDEA what any of this means. The only way I am able to access the internet at this time is by hardwireing my computer directly to the Clearwire modem using an ethernet cord. Can someone help me?

Hmmm.... I came across this post while researching your issue - Atheros AR9285 and Windows 7 not compatible - Microsoft Answers

You might visit the laptop's manufacture and see if they have (updated) drivers for your wireless Card. I assume this is the site? - Lenovo - Laptops

I am very new to this and have tried everything i can think of I havae taken my laptop to 2 different shops to have fixed and it is still Not fixed so will try this I have a dell inspiron 1545 and has been doing the same thing with the network adaptar card Atheros AR9285
getting the same error message the repair shops say they uninstalled reinstalled it as well as my husband and I did the same and it still stops working I have to reboot the computer to get a signal again I run test anad it says its working properly well it must be in order to run the test right ? However after doing research I come to a conclusion that the card just needs to be replaced is this possable and how do I do this? is this a common thing with this brand and card

jimlin have a look at this post here and see if you can update your driver,

WIFI only connects after running troubleshooter....

download and save the driver , create a new folder and unzip it there then run the set up exe
