    Before going much further,

    How many people have/use this chip since it’s circa. 2010/2011.
    Is there a desire/demand for such a driver or is this a lost cause?
    let me know.

    Not me. Sorry. But glad to know when ath9k is needed , in case I need it. It is around,

    Edit: Forgot to mention. Sometimes with atheros wifi chips on AntiX. I check for any missing firmware usually with dmesg.

    Yeah I’ve used atheros ones in my laptops with good results speed wise…haven’t
    done much range testing though…
    my other cards are:

    atheros ar5b91, ar5b97, and ar5b125 laptop pci-e half link chips using the ath9k driver.

    also an old smc usb g that works from kernel 2.4 all the way to the new 4.20 one.
    it’s a

    smcwusb-g and uses the zd1211rw driver

    It just bugs me that the rt5390 don’t work on newer kernels when it did work on the 2.6 – 3.6
    ones … it just won’t build against the newer ones. I might try switching the gcc version too.

    I think we might have to start a poll/survey on a new thread to see which cards/chips people
    have good results with and what version (stable, stesting, or unstable) are using.
