Wireless on LEDE VMware


Currently, I have been able to setup LEDE on VMware and successfully install luci via opkg. I am looking for insight in setting up wireless for a usb connected device with a AR9271 chipset.

Information about my setup::
VMware settings are default

Snapshot used for VM disk (converted to vmdk via qemu-img)


The only files changed was in


with the following edited portion for 'lan' to get internet and install luci

config interface 'lan'
option type 'bridge'
config ifname 'eth0'
config proto 'dhcp'

You need to install the kmod-ath9k-htc module and reboot to make the system detect the new wifi.

Thanks for the reply!

EDIT: I'm starting to run into an issue with the card.
I'm Using the latest LEDE Snapshot with the required kmods as noted above

What is the easiest way to install "htc_9271-1.4.0.fw"
