Drivers for Qualcomm Atheros 9485WB-EG in a Z580

2013-01-21, 23:36 PM

I just bought a Z580 with windows 8 pre-installed. I don't like the OS and want to install Windows 7. I have the required disk, licences etc.. I can download drivers for pretty much all my hardware direct from Lenovo - except for the WiFi card in the notebook.

 

The WiFi adapter is a Qualcomm Atheros 9485WB-EG.  Is there anywhere I can download a certified driver for this WiFi adapter for Windows 7.

hi flintdk,

 

Can you try to install the Atheros 9485WB-EG v10.0.0.221 from the Atheros website (applicable for Windows 7 32bit/64bit).

 

 

Hope this helps.

Hi,

 

I'll give those a try. I found those drivers all right but was a bit wary of using them as I couldn't verify the sites authenticity.  I'll give them a whirl and see what happens.

 

Thanks for the reply!
