otus driver for wpa_supplicant?

Tue Jul 31, 2012 4:36 am

I found out that for getting my combination of my wifi stick TP-Link TL-WN821N and WPA2 working I need to use wpa_supplicant and the otus driver. Is this correct?

Do I need to compile the driver myself or is there another way? Any pointers are appreciated.

You just need to load the ath9k module in order to get the card working.
To load the module on a running system run as su:

Code: Select all

modprobe ath9k
And to load the module at startup you need to add this line to the file /etc/modules

Code: Select all

To use wpa_supplicant you need to write you network config in the config file and start it with:

Code: Select all

wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c /path/to/config
As far as i know the default location is /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf.
