    Subjectath9k_htc vs. powerpc (was Re: working usb wifi card, that is still possible to buy)

    Thanks... Yes, it works, but staging scares me.

    I found card compatible with ath9k_htc driver, that works well on PC,
    and is even listed as supported by atheros. Good.

    Unfortunately, it does not work that well on powerpc mpc5200b. (I'm
    using recent wireless-testing tree).

    I can do scan just fine, but can not actually asocciate with the
    accesspoint. Nothing too useful in dmesg, only:

    Freeing unused kernel memory: 176k init
    warning: `named' uses 32-bit capabilities (legacy support in use)
    process `named' is using obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT

    wlan0: direct probe to 00:23:f8:5d:76:93 timed out

    Any ideas how to get more verbose debugging?

    Diffences to the mpc5200b board are:

    a) it is PowerPC, thus big-endian board

    b) it only has USB1.1 controller.
