I recently tried upgrading to windows 10 but when I did, my current driver wasn't compatible. Therefore, I could not connect to the internet which in essence, made my desktop useless.
Once I found that out, I rolled back to Windows 7 and decided to try to find a driver, download it, and then try the upgrade process again. I have tried searching for a driver for my 'Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20)' and cannot seem to find one compatible with Windows 10.
Am I just supposed to push off the upgrade as long as possible, because once I do my computer turns into a very expensive brick? Same issue here with Atheros AR5B95 Wireless - AR8132 PCI-E network adapter, on Acer Emachines E725: Upgrade to Windows 10 fails, message 'network controller/driver' not compatible. The does offer Windows 10 drivers for the Atheros AR5B95 Wireless Network Adapter: If this is a correct driver; how to use it and skip the Windows 10 upgrade error?
Windows Compatibility Center fails: 'We’re sorry. Searching and browsing for products in the Windows Compatibility Center is temporarily unavailable. Please try your search/browse again later.' I have the same Problem with a Dell Inspiron 1100, which uses this AR8132 Adapter for the LAN Ethernet. At the Connection I got the massage that the LAN cable is not plugged in. But the cable is ok, because it is working with an USB to LAN Adapter. Perhaps this is also a solution for you.
It only costs a few Euro aud you can work with your Laptop with Windows 10. On the other Hand it is also possible, that my Laptop has a Hardware Problem on the LAN-Connector. I cannot verify this, because Windows7 is deleted from the Computer. The last Workaround is to work with Nhe WLAN-Adapter if possible.
