WNA1100, tested, functioning as expected. :D in kernel support. i only tested it so far as "seeing networks" from a live flash distro, and now im rebuilding my kernel to support it.

got it in the mail today from ebay.

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0846:9030 NetGear, Inc. WNA1100 Wireless-N 150 [Atheros AR9271]

i guess this requires firmware? i hope this is not going south... on the + side, it aircracks perfectly :D

Yep it requires firmware, htc_9271.fw, it's in the linux-firmware package.

PS. The driver is not ath9k (that one is for PCIe cards), but ath9k_htc. They share a lot of code (the ath9k_hw module), but are still separate drivers, so make sure you've selected the correct one in your kernel config :)

i really wanted an ath9k card that could just kernel its drivers.... i guess its ok, my ubuntu install media can handle the device so i can do live wifi installs of gentoo still, and merge firmwares from ubuntu chrooting into gentoo build.
