Windows device driver information for Atheros AR5002G Wireless Network Adapter

The need to remove all cables and faulty wirings push the need to have wireless products as well. This is even though radio signals can be a difficult thing to achieve as well as the location. This network card driver caters to all IEEE 802.11g standard. Another function is its ability to use the digital CMOS technology. This, in turn, lowers power consumption and cost while maximizing reliability. The card also works on two, 2.4 GHz radio-on a-chip set. These chips are multiprotocol MAC and or baseband processor that supports the RoC. AR5002G is also equipped with (QoS) and super G mode which brings high speed data rates of 108 Mbps raw data rate with typical end user throughput exceeding 60 Mbps. Since it is wireless, all the device needs is an encryption. This device supports hardware encryption for Wi-Fi protected access (WPA) with IEEE 802.11i security specifications. This presents advanced encryption standard (AES), temporal key integrity protocol (TKIP) and wired equivalent privacy (WEP). Most portable media devices follow synchronizing data which is done by USB. This interfaces a computer to a network. Modern network adapter hardware nowadays is present in several forms. This is usually found on PCI Ethernet cards or PCMCIA devices known as credit card or PC Card adapters or USB devices. Network adapters can also be used in wireless system.

Outdated Drivers?

Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates

Reports say that some wireless network adapter mechanisms for laptop computers are integrated circuit chips pre-installed inside the computer. All network adapters, whether wired or wireless caters to Windows and other operating systems. This can be seen and set up through a piece of software known as a 'device driver.' These drivers enable application software to commune with the adapter hardware. These are installed automatically when the adapter hardware is first powered on. Some also say that these network adapters are purely software packages that imitate the functions of a network card. This is known as virtual private networking or VPN. For years, Atheros Communications has been the principal manufacturer and maker of various semiconductor systems. This caters to both wireless and other network technology related products. This company even established and invented their products to coalesce with its wireless and networking systems know-how. This is further packaged with high performance radio frequency and coupled with signal as well as digital semiconductor design expertise. This is in order to endow their products with highly integrated chipsets that are made low cost and with the ability to prevail complementary metal oxide semiconductor processes. Though rarely heard of, Atheros is regarded as the technology used by a wide base of customers who constantly use personal computers, networking equipment and other consumer device manufacturers. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Atheros AR5002G Wireless Network Adapter errors before installing any driver updates.
