    Is it hard to get wifi work on antiX-net? Installing ceni is not enough. No wlan interface is shown. Nor does installing wireless-tools seem to help.

    Well. Without a

    inxi -Fxxx

    ifconfig -a

    and since I have not tried antix-net. Kinda hard to say, really.

    Thanks for the reply. I also installed firmware-iwlwifi and firmware-atheros, but wlan interface is still not shown on ceni.

    I found that I can use the “ip” command instead of the “ifconfig” one:

    $ ip a

    2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 <snip>

    So, wlan is not shown again. But the wifi adaptor appears to be connected:

    $ lsusb

    Atheros chips when using Debian always require firmware to be installed along with the athX drivers as far as I know.
    Yours looks like it should use the ath9 driver. I do not see a athx driver in your inxi readout. Seems like you don’t have it.

    https://wiki.debian.org/ath9k

    Have you followed these instructions yet in stretch. Enable the non free repo in your sources list on your net install.
    apt-get update

    Then when that is done

    sudo apt-get install firmware-atheros

    I know you said you already did this. But just to make sure

    lsusb -t

    dmesg | grep firmware

    lspci -v

    lsmod

    Just some of the commands I use when I am stumped. Look for atheros related entries in terminal and post back. lsmod should have ath9k in it somewhere.

    Lastly. Here is /sbin/ifconfig you can put in your net install. Make sure permissions match mine.

    harry@biker:~
    $ ls -l /sbin/ifconfig
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 79744 Dec 25  2016 /sbin/ifconfig
    
    

    My uploaded ifconfig file is for 64 bit AntiX 17 only. I should have mentioned this.

    The non-free repo is already enabled in the sources list.

    $ sudo apt-get install firmware-atheros
    ...
    firmware-atheros is already the newest version (20161130-3).

    lsusb -t
    dmesg | grep firmware
    lspci -v
    lsmod

    No atheros related output for the commands above; no ath* at all. But I also tried the same commands on a live antiX-base session. No ath* output too, although wifi works on antiX-base.

    $ ls -l /sbin/ifconfig
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 79744 Dec 26  2016 /sbin/ifconfig

    But:

    $ ifconfig -a
    bash: /sbin/ifconfig: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

    I don’t know how to reply from here. Maybe someone else has better advice than mine.

    ok, thanks

    Let’s insert the module:
    sudo modprobe -i ath9k_htc
    then run lsmod again to insure the atheros module has been inserted

    if so then run sudo iwconfig to ascertain if we have ath0 or wlan0, etc. If so then
    go to ControlCentre and use ceni

    Did you update initramfs after installing the drivers? Not sure you need to but couldn’t hurt to try.

    update-initramfs -u

    Hm,

    $ ifconfig -a
    bash: /sbin/ifconfig: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

    sounds to me like a 64bit-version of ifconfig on your 32bit system.

    You can install net-tools for to use ifconfig.

    To look what you your device-id says, please output of
    modprobe -c | grep -i "0cf3.*1002"

    It didn’t solve the problem.

    Still no wlan.
