Vinnie, why don't you post the last 50 or so lines from the dmesg log then maybe we can tell.     Which extensions did you install to get wireless up and running?
I can do better and even paste the entire dmesg!  :P

Looking at:
Code: [Select]
ieee80211 phy0: Selected rate control algorithm 'ath9k_rate_control'
Registered led device: ath9k-phy0
ieee80211 phy0: Atheros AR9285 Rev:2 mem=0xf8480000, irq=17

..and:
Code: [Select]
wlan0: authenticate with 5c:da:d4:4f:8b:76 (try 1)
wlan0: authenticated
wlan0: associate with 5c:da:d4:4f:8b:76 (try 1)
wlan0: RX AssocResp from 5c:da:d4:4f:8b:76 (capab=0x411 status=0 aid=1)
wlan0: associated

..I'd say you didn't need any additional firmware for things to work

I'm lucky  8), but the package wireless-3.0.21-tinycore contains firmware of other card? is useless for me?

You'll still need wireless-3.0.21-tinycore for the modules to support your wireless driver. As far as I recall, it does not contain any firmware files.

If you enter "modinfo your_wifi_module_name", it's almost certain it will depend on one or more modules from wireless-3.0.21-tinycore

Vinnie  according to your dmesg   your wifi card "Atheros AR9285 Rev:2" needs at least "cfg80211" module which is in "wireless-3.0.xx-tinycore"

Thanks

Suggestion you take this to a thread in the "Off Topic" subforum   ;)

See that's exactly what was asked thanks Vinnie for the heads up on the command line paste bin..  could come in handy here too  ;)


Really was there any need for an off topic comment.. ???

Not having been aware of a respective extension, I was ready to post my own script for sprunge - but I would not do so in a thread and subforum where such would be totally off-topic.

NB: My own script which does the job for me is 54 bytes, I would find using an extension a bit disproportional.
