    Default help about ar9170 and wlan0 lost

    gd work for bt5 ^_^
    i had downloaded bt5|64bit kde
    startx problem had solved ,, and nvidia driver setup solved ..
    but i have problem in ar9170 usb tplink
    i was using it well in bt4 | r2 and i have the firmware of it ,, but now in bt5 i made as i did in bt4 by copying the files to firmware and installing the latest combat wireless ,, but after that it still not working ..
    also the problem is that i had lost wlan0 the default wireless driver .. since i was working well with it
    it looks not found after typin

    Download the below files and put them into /lib/firmware

    http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...9170/ar9170.fw
    http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kerne...1.fw;hb=master
    http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kerne...2.fw;hb=master

    download wireless drivers
    http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/comp...6.32.3.tar.bz2
    Code:
    tar -xf /root/compat-wireless-2.6.32.3.tar.bz2
    cd compat-wireless-2.6.32.3
    make
    make install
    make unload

    Code:
    nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    add this to the blacklist without the quotes
    "blacklist arusb_lnx"
