First, I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on an Auau k56by Laptop using
an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. The driver I am using is from the Asus
Help and support website, and its version information is:
Driver c:\windows\system32\drivers\athrx.sys (126.96.36.1997, 2.63 MB (2,753,536 bytes), 27/06/2011 12:37 AM)
When I check my system logs, (event viewer -> windows logs -> application)
I have three errors:
Error: EapHost 2002 peer
Skipping: Eap method DLL path name validation failed. Error: typeId=43, authorId=9, vendorId=0, vendorType=0
The other two are the same, except that the "typeId" is 25 and 17.
I have tracked the problem to three registry entries:
They relate to three files that are not installed:
c:\Program Files(x86)\Cisco\Cisco LEAP Module\CiscoEapLeap.dll
@c:\Program Files(x86)\Cisco\Cisco LEAP Module\CiscoEapLeap.dll,-117
c:\Program Files(x86)\Cisco\Cisco PEAP Module\CiscoEapPeap.dll,-119
@c:\Program Files(x86)\Cisco\Cisco PEAP Module\CiscoEapPeap.dll,-119
09 - 43
c:\Program Files(x86)\Cisco\Cisco EAP-FAST Module\CiscoEapFast.dll
@c:\Program Files(x86)\Cisco\Cisco EAP-FAST Module\CiscoEapFast.dll,-30119
The thing is that I do not have Cisco installed on my computer. I dont know if it was left be hind by some other program, and
there does not seem to be any conectivity problems - My wireless addaptor connects just fine to networks I join such as my wireless wi-fi modem.
I am wondering if it is safe to remove these entries as they point to non-existant software - or if anyone knows where to get the Cisco
software that is missing (and what that software may have been)?
Any help or advice would be welcome.
