Solved Error with network adapter

I am running a dual boot configuration with Windows 7 Ultimate and Vista Home Premium on a Samsung N145 Plus. The Vista is freshly installed but there is one problem. The network adapter displays code 10 (This device cannot start.), thus making Internet activation impossible. I have verified that the drivers are correct for the Atheros AR9285. Is there any way to fix this? Thank you.

P.S. I am not asking for drivers because they are correct.

Welcome to Vista Forums Mebibyte. If your "correct" driver was digitally signed July 23, 2019, then it would be absurd to imagine that it was tested on Windows Vista. There is a much older driver at Microsoft Update Catalog.

My driver is signed 9/5/2009, as reported by Device Manager.
