The [CommView] Atheros AR5006X Wireless Network Adapter is a network adapter that has several features such as a highly integrated CMOS single chip solution that consists of multiprotocol. It has a 2.4/5 GHz radio and a MAC/baseband processor. The network adapter utilizes exclusively, the digital CMOS hence, minimizing the power usage. When the power usage is minimized, the cost can also be minimized and there will be reliability maximization. This [CommView] Atheros AR5006X Wireless Network Adapter has support for IEEE 802.11g, 802.11b, and 802.11a. It is also support compatible bursting of 802.11e. The device has QoS or Quality of Service support due to its Wireless Multimedia Enhancements. The device in Super AG mode is able to deliver around 108 Mbps data link rate, with the typical end user throughput above 60Mbps. This Super AG uses an Adaptive Radio for automatic identification of clear channels to achieve maximum throughput and the standards for compatible operation.
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
The [CommView] Atheros AR5006X Wireless Network Adapter has hardware encryption used for IEEE 802.11i and Wi-Fi Protected Access, WPA security specification with the provision of Advanced Encryption. This device also has support intended for draft IEEE 802.11e, 802.11h, 802.11i, and 802.11j standards. TKIP or Temporal Key Integrity, WEP or Wired Equivalent Privacy and standard (AES) without performance degradation are other notable features in this network adapter. The device also has the Atheros XR eXtended Range Technology, which gives Wi-Fi invention two times the variety of designs that exist. It also has improvements on the design of power saving, hence causing a system power usage reduction of 98%.
