Netgear WN111v2 on SAM9-L9260


I have a wireless-stick, which i wanna use with my linux-system. the hardware is based on a olimex sam9-l9260. there runs a debian 5.0.

I searched a compatible usb-wireless-stick. so i bought Netgear WN111v2 which uses the ar9170 driver.

i compiled the module for my system. and i installed the firmware to /lib/firmware. but it dont really works. a few weeks ago i already asked somethign about a wireless-stick... but here's another problem.

if i connect the stick to the system, i see this messages:
usb 1-1.2: new full speed USB device using at91_ohci and address 5
usb 1-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=0846, idProduct=9001
usb 1-1.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=16, Product=32, SerialNumber=48
usb 1-1.2: Product: USB2.0 WLAN
usb 1-1.2: Manufacturer: ATHER
usb 1-1.2: SerialNumber: 12345
usb 1-1.2: reset full speed USB device using at91_ohci and address 5
usb 1-1.2: firmware: requesting ar9170.fw
usb 1-1.2: USB setup failed (-32).
USB setup failed? i searched and searched and searched... but i didn't find an answer to this error-message...

has anyone an idea what's wrong? or is there somewhere a log, which contains a better message?


best regards


So i tried something new. i think it's stupid and it didn't work...

here is the code, which generates the error:

i defined error as 0, so i forced it... but it didn't work. i think it's a stupid idea...

need help;-)

i solved the problem:
i used a clean i changed to the patched 2.6.31-rc3-kernel from olimex. now it works.

Thanks for posting the solution. That's the LQ spirit.

A suggestion for the future: If you answer your own question, put the solution in a separate post; this does 2 good things:
  • It generates e-mail to anyone who subscribed to either the thread or the forum.
  • It avoids the creation of oxymoronic 0-reply solved threads.
