- Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian squeeze non-free at the end
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install firmware-atheros
- Download the firmware
cd /lib/firmware sudo wget http://linuxwireless.org/download/htc_fw/1.3/htc_9271.fw
- Protect the file /etc/network/interfaces
sudo chmod 0600 /etc/network/interfaces
- Edit /etc/network/interfaces
sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces
- Add the following lines. Note that I am using WEP. If you are using WPA, use the fields wpa-ssid and wpa-psk instead
auto wlan0 allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp wireless-essid your-ssid wireless-key your-hex-key
- Bring up the interface
sudo ifup wlan0
About the performance. Using sftp to copy /dev/zero via wifi maxed out the CPU with transfer rate at around 1.6MB/s... maybe need to test the speed without encryption...
Thank you for this nice tutorial! I have a Raspberry Pi model B, with the latest xmbc version, and it appears you don't have to correct the sources.list and the command is apt-get (update, then install)
Thank you again, it's been really helpful!
I am new to the Pi and (very) confused and have problems with setting up wifi.
I can see how to enter
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
in the LX terminal but cannot understand what I have to then enter to "Save" the changes. I am sure it is so simple that no one thinks to mention it but it escapes me! Can you help?
Also you appear to have spaces before "wireless" in you code are these necessary or optional?
Hi Richard. vi is a text editor. If you are new to the command line environment, you may try the nano editor instead. It is more user-friendly
