Code: [Select]
$ wget http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86_64/tcz/firmware-atheros.tcz
$ wget http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86_64/tcz/firmware-atheros.tcz.md5.txt
$ mv firmware-atheros.tcz* /mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/optional
$ tce-load -i firmware-atheros

Okay, but, just wondering this says x86_64 not arm, right? After I downloaded this, then I can load the wifi extension (wifi.tcz) from here http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/11.x/armv6/tcz/

Ok, I'll test this out when I'm back from work, probably in the evening. Thanks for your assistance!

reply 13 from OP
Quote

1a2c  China Resource Semico Co., Ltd.......Vendor ID known
   http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids

but a search of the product draws a blank so maybe it is?

Maybe OP could post their full lsusb output?

piCore has busybox lsusb in the base, which gives this:
Code: [Select]
$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514

The full lsusb is more useful:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i usbutils
$ /usr/local/bin/lsusb
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Microchip Technology, Inc. (formerly SMSC) SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Microchip Technology, Inc. (formerly SMSC) SMC9514 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

I was trying to suggest to OP that we need the full lsusb. On my RPi I just happen to look at my lsusb and I have the exact device that the OP might be claiming is a network device.Its a multimedia keyboard brand JBurrows in Australia. Might be called something else overseas.

Code: [Select]
lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1a2c:0e24 China Resource Semico Co., Ltd --------------------its a kb
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04f3:0235 Elan Microelectronics Corp. Optical Mouse
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 2109:3431 VIA Labs, Inc. Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

I should add some trivia, I did not know I had this USB id keyboard until just then.

What happened was, got tired of swapping my usb kb to a recently purchased RPi which I have only owned for a number of days. So only just bought the  cheapest kb for the RPI and thats when I discovered the id issue.

this is what my tower ids look like
Code: [Select]
lsusb
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0000:3825 
Bus 001 Device 010: ID c0f4:04c0 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Yep I buy cheap

Hello yes, I will provide full lsusb output. I didn't know I need to first tce-load something.

Btw.: The adapter is definitely an Atheros WLAN USB stick, which I bought years back as it was advertised to be supported by on RPi OOTB.

Will later post the lsusb output.

best,
Stephan
