Network problem beaglebone

Hello Friend!
I have a problem with my board Beaglebone.
I’m trying to run a USB Wifi adapter with Atheros ar9271 driver. However, sometimes it works, and most often occurs an error of type ath9k download failed and it does not.

Another problem is with the Ethernet port. When I put the computer port works, but when I put in the HUB it does not work.

I’m guessing Linux sucks. Everything is very complicated, nothing works properly. Help please!

Some useful info, you should include:

Distribution, kernel version (uname -r), firmware and modules
installed for the "Atheros ar9271" device.

">> sometimes it works, and most often occurs an error of type ath9k download

failed and it does not."....

Please expand, what actually fails, any info/hints in "dmesg" when it
or what "fails"?

Regards,

Hello Robert!

My Linux is Ubuntu 12.10 on Beaglebone.
Error:
usb 1-1: ath9k_htc: Firmware - htc_9271.fw download failed
ath9k_htc: probe of 1-1:1.0 failed with error -22

Please also add the output of "uname -r" and "lsusb"

lsusb: the vid/pid of your device might not be included in the kernel
version your running...

Second, accoring to google, this looks to be a firmware issue, see:
http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k_htc

and follow "The newer, properly versioned firmware is at:
http://linuxwireless.org/download/htc_fw/." and copy the newer
firmware to /lib/firmware/

Regards,

root@arm:~# uname -r
3.2.32-psp25
root@arm:~# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

What I do not understand, is that sometimes it works and sometimes not …

thank you

Hi Nilson, is there any update? Have you tried to use a powered usb hub?
