    Default TP-link TL-WN821N

    Hi,

    I have this TP-LINK TL-WN821N Stick, and I want to get wireless with it. But I dont really know wich module to load. The only two modules i can find wich could be the right ones are ar9170usb and ath9k_htc . When I load them with modprobe, and i type in iwconfig there is still no wlan0 .
    Somebody told me I had to load ar9271, but where can I find it. How can I install it, and is it really the right one?

    Please help me.
    Thank you for answers

    it uses the ar9170usb driver.
    Make sure your using BackTrack4 R2. You shouldn't need to load any module it will do it automatically. try unplugging it and plugging it back in.

    does it show up with
    Code:
    airmon-ng

    Which version of the TP-link TL-WN821N are you using?
    v2 uses the AR9170usb drivers
    v3 uses the ath9k_htc drivers
    Eitherway, make sure you download the firmware and put it in the right place.

    I am using V3.1, and solution was installing the Compat-wireless-2.6.33 (newest version)
