Qualcomm QCWB335 WiFi/Bluetooth mPCIe card


I have a Qualcomm QCWB335 (AR9565) card, but I can´t get to work.

What drivers shall I use?
Is it possible to get bluetooth to work as well?

You might get lucky with ath9k. If it's USB maybe ath9k_htc.

You might have to enable ATH9K_SUPPORT_PCOEM for ath9k.

I tried, with no luck, all four ath9k packages.

How do I " enable ATH9K_SUPPORT_PCOEM for ath9k"?

ATH9K_SUPPORT_PCOEM is a build-time setting for mac80211 (CONFIG_ATH9K_SUPPORT_PCOEM=y), you'd need to set this build configuration setting and rebuild OpenWrt from source.

I change:
# CONFIG_ATH9K_SUPPORT_PCOEM is not set to CONFIG_ATH9K_SUPPORT_PCOEM=y in .config of Imagebuilder and created a new image. But no change :frowning:

Image Builder doesn't actually recompile packages, it only packs up existing binaries into an image.

You will have to compile from source.
