Re: AR 9170 wireless usb adapter help

i had a similar problem resently.
ar9170-firmware does not contain the new carl1970 firmware and that the one i needed.

to see if you have the same problem i had. type in dmesg right after you plugged in the stick.
if firmware not found shows up, chances are you have the same problem.
$ dmesg
[  142.706194] usb 1-2: firmware not found.
if that is the case simply go to
get your firmware and copy it as root into /lib/firmware/

worked for me.
