i try to get work my TP-LINK (TL-WN721N) USB wifi in the last 3 days. It need the AR9271 driver.
I have the VMware image on my computer.
I connected my USB wifi key to the VMware.
I downloaded the ar9170-1.fw, ar9170-2.fw, ar9170.fw, ar9271.fw and copyed them to the /lib/firmware library.
I try with many version of compat-wireless package the following:
- download, unpack
- ./scripts/driver-select ath9k_htc
- make && make install (some version dropped Error)
- make unload
- make load or modprobe ath9k_htc
Now i can see iwconfig, airmon-ng, the wlan0 and wlan1 to, but in ifconfing only wlan0, so i make airmon-ng start wlan0, but airodump-ng wlan0 see no the wifi networks....
I'am very confused, what to do next???
