fixed: fw-detect and manual entry, Atheros wifi
« on: 2012/11/28, 20:54:55 »
Having just set up a desktop system with a TP-Link TL-WN821N USB wifi adapter, I found that the instruction given by "fw-detect" is outdated.  Rather than go to that web site for the firmware, you need to install the firmware-atheros package from Debian non-free.

BTW, other than that minor glitch, Riders is working great on this old POS hardware:
