Unhappy Problem with TP-Link WN722N


Hi, I'm running Slax on my hard drive and I have a TL-WN722N USB WiFi adapter.

I've downloaded compat-wireless and I've already compiled it (make, make install, make unload, make load ath9k_htc). Also I moved the firmware file that I've downloaded to /lib/firmware. With all these things done I suppose that wireless interface should be working but it isn't. When I put
Code:
iwconfig
on terminal it just returns:
Code:
lo              no wireless extensions
Any idea what is going on here?

You should start the network before executing iwconfig
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 wlan0_start
Note that you'll have to configure your /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf for wlan0. Depending on the encryption your wireless network uses, you'll also have to configure wpa_supplicant.conf.

Sorry for the late answer. I finally got it working following this tutorial: http://www.serompiolaventana.com.ar/?p=130

Anyhow, I don't know why it didn't work this time, I usually just copied the firmware file, compiled compat-wireless, loaded the modules and that was it (sometimes I had to configure the interface but it wasn't that big of a deal).

Thanks.
