I have a USB dongle that uses the Atheros 9170 chipset

# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0cf3:9170 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR9170 802.11n

I have configured the kernel to include the Atheros 9170 drivers as modules and load them through /etc/conf.d/modules. I have emerged the linux-firmware package, then downloaded the carl9170-1.fw driver from linuxwireless.org and put it in /lib/firmware/. When I plug in the device, it gets assigned to phy0 according to dmesg. However, my message log quickly fills up with:

Can someone confirm that this is a driver issue?

Thanks!

what kernel version are you using? usb ehci driver troubles have plagued some of the 3.7.6 and later. 3.8.2 to 3.8.4 have worked for me.
