Windows 7: No SSID shown on Samsung NP-R719, atheros AR9285

No SSID shown on Samsung NP-R719, atheros AR9285


I'm stuck with an issue on a NP-R719 laptop.

Wlan with AR9285 chip seems correctly installed, but no SSID is shown and so, internet connection isn't possible. I tried Samsung'site original driver for that model, and 3 other versions from Atheros site, but nothing change.

The user has mistakenly started Samsung's factory restore, and has stopped it...the W7 Home premium is OK with everything ; only wlan isn't ok anymore.

There is a visible SSID in that house, and i can connect flawlessly with another laptop, or a smartphone.

Wlan physical button is ON.

Please help....

Thanks in advance

Some identifiers can be set manualy as well as automatically generated, some don't broadcast for safety. Have a look at this article, it might help.

As I'm sure you know you require a driver.
Also try Troubleshoot Network and Internet Connectivity

By the way, there is an SSID broadcast in that case. Troubleshoot Network and Internet Connectivity doesn't help, it just said "there is a problem with the card driver" at the end of the test.
