    Default How to get AR9271 USB wifi working

    Hi Guys,

    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???
