I don't see any drivers for the BCM5974.

As per https://wikidevi.com/wiki/List_of_Wi-Fi_Device_IDs_in_Linux

..you need the carl9170 driver, but as per the kernel config:

# CONFIG_CARL9170 is not set

I followed the link, downloaded the driver for TL-WN821N for linux, unzip it, opened it, and I see it's a blank file. Nothing written in it.

I believe you need to enable the carl9170 driver in the kernel config and compile it.

This means to edit /mnt/sda1/tce/boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf? It's like this:

Code: [Select]
DEFAULT core
LABEL core
KERNEL /tce/boot/vmlinuz
APPEND initrd=/tce/boot/core.gz quiet  waitusb=5:UUID="b7c9ae56-0223-4d78-9cfb-9ece1ebe91e2" tce=UUID="b7c9ae56-0223-4d78-9cfb-9ece1ebe91e2" kmap=qwerty/gr lang=el_GR.UTF-8

How should it become?

No, it means that you will need to download the kernel source and kernel config from here:

http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/7.x/x86/release/src/kernel/

..enable the carl9170 driver as a module, recompile the kernel and make an extension containing the module.

carl9170-modules-4.2.9-tinycore extension posted - let me know if it works

BTW, it looks iffy: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/carl9170

I don't know if this is more for support, but tplink have some drivers on there own site.

http://www.tp-link.com/res/down/soft/TL-WN821N_V4_150909.zip

It has a good doc inside the zip file(Installation for linux driver_RTL.pdf)
Some thing says to me there are some changes to the hardware between the hardware versions.
What i can see on there site, there are v5 v4 v3.

It probably didn't make it to the mirrors yet, download it from http://repo.tinycorelinux.net

Either use the apps gui and the mirrors extension to change the download site or:

Code: [Select]
$ wget -c http://repo.tinycorelinux.net/7.x/x86/tcz/carl9170-modules-4.2.9-tinycore.tcz{,.dep,.md5.txt}

See what I wrote at Reply #17. That time I had downloaded v4 and now v5. But again, after unzip the file, I open it (with editor or leafpad) and it's blank. And there was not any doc inside the zip file.
