currently have the following setup:
Raspberry Pi model B (running Raspbian wheezy under berryboot) netgear WN111v2 wifi adapter
Ive googled thoroughly on how to setup this adapter, but while 50% say they had no success on setting up and using this adapter, there is the other half that have successfully gotten this adapter setup and running, albeit no straight forward instructions on how they did it.
Things ive gathered is that the adapter is a Atheros chipset (ar9170), and need the driver/firmware of carl9170.
Being a total newbie on Linux, I would appreciate if some of you can give me a hand on how to get this setup.
- how do I get the latest firmware for this adapter to my raspberry? lx terminal or do I go into 'startx' and download it from there (I have Ethernet connection) using the web browser? if I d/load it using the latter will it install automatically or do I need to point it where to install?
- some exact instructions on configuration is also appreciated.
Any help would be appreciated.
