BarryA may need to replace the Atheros AR5005G WiFI adapter in his Toshiba Satellite Pro with Windows XP Professional. I did a lot of searching and did not find any decent replacement got the AR5005G other than from China but delivery dates were Dec 10 - Jan 20, way to far out.
 
Anyone have any idea where he can find one closer to home or another WiFi adapter that can replace the AR5005G?

Why not just disabling the integrated adapter and adding a USB adapter.
