Cnet is a good download website.. never copped any virus from them..

Good luck.


Hi combat wombat !,

Thanks for your reply. I agree that Cnet is a good source, and I have never received any malware from them.

However, when I looked at Cnet they did not have the exact driver I needed , namely I need drivers for a :
Toshiba , Atheros AR5006X ar5211.sys , wireless network adapter WI-FI driver for Windows XP please

Just a friendly fyi , beware that it appears likely that the virus/rootkit malware came from China since the totallydrivers.com-Asia-comm_driver_v4.2.0.374.02 Ekahau Wireless Utility
WI-FI driver which was found to be infected with Virus.Win32.Expiro.w ,
furthermore it appears to have been a latent/sleeper/'zero hour' virus that was activated after a ~ 5 year delay.

Thanks again !

Friendly FYI...

If you scroll down.. the exact driver you requested is listed...

Which takes you to:
http://download.cnet.com/802-11b-g-Atheros-Wireless-Lan...;contentBody

Which says: Its a package for "Atheros AR5006X Wireless Network Adapter"

And I'm sorry but this link is not infected... I downloaded it myself and checked before I linked it to you.. This is not an Asain link of any sort.. I would recommend scanning the entire page next time as it may not be black and white and just happen to be the big "download" button presented on the page..

As goes for the rest of your story... I'm sorry but I'm not following.. but there is your driver... have a good one :)
