    Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter


    I have 3 Acer Aspire laptops of varying models and vintages; the oldest and newest have no problem connecting to my router. The Aspire E 15 Start uses the Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter which I have uninstalled and reinstalled many times which resolves the problem now and again but not every time; a it is irritating to have to go through this performance and b it is not a permanent fix.If I try to update the driver, I am told this is the correct driver. Can you suggest a proper solution, bearing in mind that I am not technical at all so baby steps would be appreciated.Tha

    :)

    Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network adapter and Windows 10

    Are you coming to the conclusion that your wifi network adapter (specifically the Qualcomm Atheros AR956x) is faulty because Windows trouble shooter cannot resolve your wifi connectivity issues? I was. I finally found a driver that seems to have solved the
    problem. See link below.

    My Windows 10 laptop (an Acer Aspire) repeatedly lost its ability to connect to my Wifi network. If I restarted my router it would work until the next time the laptop slept, hibernated or shut down. The trouble shooter could never resolve the issue and the
    so-called search for updated drivers always told me I had the latest one. I spent hours trying every so-called solution posted on this and other forums to resolve this issue with no success. After trying various search parameters for drivers I finally found
    a link to the driver that solved my problem. (Atheros was the key, not Qualcomm.)

    https://www.atherosddrivers.

    (It seems that the forum truncates the appearance of links, so here is the link in text form:

    https://www.atherosddrivers.com/2017/09/atheros-ar956x-wireless-network-adapter.html )

    I do not know why Windows does not find this driver when searching for updated drivers for the AR956x.

    I installed it yesterday so it's still early days but so my laptop has seamlessly resumed it's wifi connection after shut-down, sleep and hibernation. It was so great this morning to discover I did not have to restart the router to get the laptop back online!
    Hope this helps a bunch of you folks out!

    Hi Mouhibben,

    Thank you for responding.

    As the above troubleshooting steps couldn't resolve the issue, do not worry.

    Let us proceed further with different troubleshooting steps to uninstall and re-install the network drivers and check if it helps.

    I suggest you to download the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website, uninstall the existing drivers, install them and check if it helps.

    Step 1: To uninstall drivers, follow these steps:

    • Press Windows key + x key on your keyboard.
    • Select Device manager.
    • Expand Network adapters. Right-click on the device and click
      Uninstall.
    • Restart the computer and check if the issue persists.

    Step 2: Download the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website and try to install.

    Refer: Download Qualcomm Atheros wireless driver

    Search for: AR956x and download for your system architecture 32-bit/ 62-bit

    Refer to the article by Andre Da Costa to install the drivers:

    Hope it helps. Update us the status of this issue for further assistance.

    Thank you.
