View Full Version : Wireless adapter question

08-30-2011, 11:07 PM
I am using the Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter but for some reason in device manager it puts a #2 at the end of it like so Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter #2.

I've tried re-installing the driver etc but it persistently says it is #2. could this be a bug or something?

For some reason windows thinks that your wireless adapter is new. Its labeled as number 2 since windows thinks that there is another "Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter" installed on your system just not plugged in or disabled and wants to avoid a conflict if the first adapter returns. The label does not affect your connection

alright, but it's odd that it thinks that :/
