I have a Asus EeePC 1001PX and upgraded to Win 7 Ultimate but I couldn't find any driver for the wireless network adapter. Does anyone knows where I can find it?

Tried the official page of the Asus but NONE of the files helped me.

What is the hardware ID of the wireless adapter? (Check via the device manager, the [unidentified device, properties, tab "details", Property "Hardware Ids"). – Hennes Mar 19 '13 at 23:54
@Hennes: Please re-check my question I've updated it. Thanks! – el.severo Mar 21 '13 at 1:14

PCI vendor 168C is Atheros Communications Inc.
(I used this database to search in, but any search engine should get you started.)

Refining the search their device 0032 yields:

Chip Number:      0x0209  
Chip Description: AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter  

The zip file in their notes seems to be for a "Qualcomm Atheros WiFi Driver Installation", "ProductGUID=7D916FA5-DAE9-4A25-B089-655C70EAF607", "CompanyName=Qualcomm Atheros". Try installing that one.

You're right! Thanks for the info! – el.severo Mar 21 '13 at 22:43
For future reference: This trick should work for almost any unidentified device. Both in windows (via the device manager) and in unix like OS's (e.g. OS/X) where you have commands such as lspci and pciconf – Hennes Mar 21 '13 at 22:48
