You may be dealing with an Atheros chipset with that card. Here's all I could find:

thanks ill try that. It most likely is the missing firmware

Some firmware will support other card revisions. Most likely the 9270 and 9271 is the same model but the 9271 might be a 802.11N specification whereas a 9270 might be 802.11G specs.
