To update your Qualcomm Atheros AR938X driver

There are two ways you can update your Qualcomm Atheros AR938X drivers:

Option 1 – Automatically (Recommended) – This is the quickest and easiest option. It’s all done with just a couple of mouse clicks – easy even if you’re a computer newbie.


Option 2 – Manually – You’ll need some computer skills and patience to update your drivers this way, because you need to find exactly the right the driver online, download it and install it step by step.

Option 1 – Update Qualcomm Atheros AR938X drivers automatically

If you don’t have Internet access, make sure to connect your computer to a wired network in order for a quick and smooth Wi-Fi driver download & update. But if you do have Internet access, follow the steps on the same (target) computer.

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update the Qualcomm driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing. Driver Easy takes care of it all.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks:

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

3) Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

You can do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.

Now congrats – you’ve successfully updated the Qualcomm Atheros AR938X driver.

Option 2 – Update Qualcomm Atheros AR938X drivers manually

According to Qualcomm Atheros’s official website, Atheros no longer provide driver releases to its end customers. So to manually update your Qualcomm Atheros AR938X driver, you need to go to your PC manufacturer’s website, find the drivers corresponding with your specific flavor of Windows version (for example, Windows 32 bit) and download the driver manually.

Once you’ve downloaded the correct drivers for your system, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.

That’s it – 2 easy ways to update the latest Qualcomm Atheros AR938X driver. Hope this helps and feel free to comment below if you have any further questions. Thanks for reading! 🙂
