Ath9k-htc with Atheros AR9271 on Beaglebone with angstrom ubuntu
Thank you for your time. I am currently having some issues getting my TP-Link TL-WN422G wireless adapter working on my beaglebone running an angstrom ubuntu linux. (Somewhat new to linux in general, really trying to immerse myself currently though!) The end result that I am looking for is running my beaglebone as an access point. After doing some research, I believe that this wireless adapter's chipset is supported by the ath9k-htc drivers, which supports acting as an access point. For now, I would just like to get the wireless running, I can figure out the AP stuff afterward. I believe I have the information asked for from the "wireless setup start here" post, but if I am missing anything, please let me know and I will get it asap.
The issue I am running into is that when the wireless adapter is plugged into the usb port, it will start freezing my ssh session. I have been messing around with this for the past 4-5 hours today, and have had mostly the same results. When I unplug the adapter, the session resumes and I can continue interacting with the beaglebone. My debugging process is something like: get the command ready, plug in the wireless adapter, hit enter before it "freezes." I am not sure exactly what I am racing, perhaps the wireless initializing of the device, just a guess. From this process, I have gotten the following information:
(typed lsusb, plugged in card, hit enter, and this showed up before the session froze)

Edit1: I believe my etc/network/interfaces is correct, I had this working flawlessly with my other usb adapter (it just didnt support APs)

I am afraid I won't be of much help on this one.

Kinda hard to find any info on beagle boards.

Yeah, beaglebone resources are hard to come across :/ I actually have most of those links bookmarked :P I appreciate the on-going effort. There's gotta be something that is blocking/interfering. I mean, it *does* work like 1 in 25 times that I try, so I am fairly confident that the hardware in the wireless adapter is fine. Gotta be a process :/ Thanks! I will be sure to post as soon as I solve this
