Can you post output of lsmod and lsusb. Have you installed the firmware
for the device into /lib/firmware? If the device is supported by the
kernel you won't be able to load the module without the firmware
installed.

Google is your friend.

Thanks, Terry.


Why do you believe you need to install some kind of a driver? From the
below, it looks like your card is an atheros chip-based one, and you have a
bunch of ath9 modules loaded.


What exactly is or is not working for you.

Well, I plug the the USB device and nothing happens. According to the
manual, a led should be turned on when I plug the USB.
