Angry TP-WN722n [ AR9271 Chipset ] + ath_htc driver PROBLEM .


well , guys here is my first post here i wish it can be solved .
problem :
TP-WN722n usb wireless adaptor when i check the *.inf file it seem to be Atheros AR9271 chipset inside .by making a deep google i knew that the chipset is supported under the driver ath9k_htc http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k_htc .
i followed too many code patches but nothing works . this is what i think its little closer http://forum.ubuntuusers.de/topic/tl.../#post-2373174 .

Lightbulb [solved]

First go to http://files.iniza.org/ath9k_htc/ and download compat-wirelessy (for ubuntu the first version of compat wireless)
Than uncompress it and place it in the folder compat-wireless, as an example my case: /home/kcdtv/Escritorio/compat-wireless-2010-03-19

open a terminal and write

cd /home/kcdtv/Escritorio/compat-wireless-2010-03-19
sudo make
sudo make install

The terminal sayed after that you should unload the drivers for bluetooth and wireless. do so so and then load ath9k_htc

Now that compat-wireless is installed we have to download the firmware and copy it to he folowing directory:
/lib/firmware
you can get the firmware at the following adress: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kerne...9dc18991ec833c
In order to copy the firmware you can write, like in my case, the following line (escritorio means desktop in spanish):
sudo cp -r /home/kcdtv/Escritorio/ar9271.fw /lib/firmware
Now you have done the job...

kcdtv@kcdtv-laptop:~$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

eth1 IEEE 802.11bg Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz
Access Point: Not-Associated Bit Rate:0 kb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm
Sensitivity=8/0
Retry limit:7 RTS thrff Fragment thrff
Power Managementff
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:"JAZZTEL_xx"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Access Point: 00:1A:2B:51:7B:xx
Bit Rate=1 Mb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thrff Fragment thrff
Power Managementff
Link Quality=29/70 Signal level=-81 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

As you can see, the eth1 is the IPW2200BG, and the wlan0 is the Atheros and is associated.
