Wireless drivers for “Askey AR5BMB5” or “Atheros AR5005G” (AR2413A based)

Yesterday I had to fix an old Toshiba Equium laptop, that didn’t recognize its wireless NIC.

It was an Askey AR5BMB5 miniPCI card, based on AR2413A chipset.

You can download the correct driver here, under “Atheros” section:

Download mirror:

OS Driver version Download link
Windows XP (32bit) 9.2.0.419.0 atheros-wlan-xp-9204190.zip
Windows Vista (32/64bit) 7.7.0.288.0 atheros-wlan-vista-7702880.zip
Windows 7 (32/64bit) 9.2.0.419.0 atheros-wlan-win7-9204190.zip

 

Once installed, it shows up in device manager as “Atheros AR5005G Wireless Network Adapter”.
I had problems connecting to WPA2 protected networks, probably due to unsupported AES encryption.
Setting your router wireless security to “WPA/WPA2” and “TKIP+AES” should solve the issue.
