Hello,

I would like to use the WLAN Adapter TP-LINK TL-WN422G with my Orangepi PC.
Unfortunately the device does not show any "wlan0" network device.

It gets recognized by the board though.

Copy code

But thats all. Any suggestions?

No ideas? Is this the wrong category?

Try lshw utility - is shows more information from device tree.
Simply listing ifconfig will not show unconfigured wifi adapters - iwconfig might.
Anyway, you will need to configure it before using.

I switched to http://armbian.com/

which works nice. I only need to figure out how to use the GPIO Pins.

I just configured the network in the
  1. /etc/network/interfaces
Copy code

file . see manual here: https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse

and entered
  1. ifup wlan0
Copy code

I had still problems getting the adapter up after running

  1. apt-get update
  2. apt-get upgrade
Copy code

Before it did this update it worked (which is strange). So I decided to try to install the atheros firmware (again) from

https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Atheros_AR9271

by entering

  1. apt-get install firmware-atheros
Copy code

then rebooted and it works now without any problems.

I will try this out on the original images eventually
