Good to be back here.. :)

Got no issues about programming (ATM), but got some problem regarding my Network Adapter.

It's Atheros AR9285 Version My problem is that, it does detects WiFi network connections but i cant connect to them even if its a public or open network, doesn't require passwords or anything.

I can't connect really. I tried updating the device but it says i have the latest.

My Computer model is MSI CR410
My windows spec is as follows:

  • Windows 7 Ultimate
  • Processor AMD Athlon Dual Core 2.3- GHz
  • RAM 2GB
  • 32 Bit


1) Try connecting using an ethernet cable?
2) How old is your wireless adapter? Did you change a new one recently?
3) Can other laptops connect to the same network wirelessly?

Try these steps
1) Make sure no firewall is blocking the internet connection. Anti virus's firewall can cause the the problem?
2) Make sure your wifi switch is turn on
