Acer 5733 wireless driver


I have Acer Aspire 5733 notebook. I have searched all over the net XP drivers for wireless adapter Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter and couldn't find any. Also tried installing win7 drivers and many other that i digged up but none of them worked. Did anybody had similar problem, or knows how to help me. I know this is win7 forum but I'm out of solutions. Thank you. vendor: 168C; device: 0032. Official Acer website doesn't have xp drivers. Tried manual installation with add hardware but again zero effect. Notebook came with linux mee go.
