Install Wireless USB Adapter TL-WN721N driver on Ubuntu 10.4

Hello Folks,

This last weekend and I have to play a little bit with Ubuntu 10.4 and my new wireless USB adapter TP-LINK model TL-WN721N. The Ubuntu 10.4 has not recognized the adapter, so I had to ask Google how to make that works. I’ve tried many things, one was using diswrapper with Windows Driver, but did not work. After another attempts I found a solution, and I decide to write here.

The first step is to get the firmware, you can download it from the following link:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git;a=blob_plain;f=ar9271.fw;hb=35b308409dc18991ec833c24972fd631c9f479a1

After the download you need to copy it to /dev/firmware directory:

sudo cp -r ~/Downloads/ar9271.fw /lib/firmware

Now we need to get the latest version of compact wireless, you can get it from the link below:

http://wireless.kernel.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/

I got the file compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2

After the download you will need to uncompress the file:

tar -xjvf compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2

Now, it’s time to compile the driver. Enter in directory:

cd compat-wireless-2010-05-23/

and type the command:

sudo make

After the compilation, you can install the driver using the command:

sudo make install

Now, you need to unload the old driver and load the new one:

sudo make unload
sudo make load ath9k_htc

After loading the new driver you must reboot you system and once the system rebooted you will be able to use your wireless connection.

I hope this tip will be useful for you.

See you!!

Leo

    I m stuck at “sudo make” when i type the command “sudo make” and then enter it say

    /root/Desktop/compat-wireless-2010-07-20/config.mk:29 *** “ERROR: compat-wireless by default support kernels >= 2.6.25, try enabling only one driver though”.
    Stop.

    how im gonna do?? please help🙂
    thankz

    • Leonardo on

      Looks the problem is the version of your kernel. This need kernel >= 2.6.25. What version are your kernel?

  3. BT on

    I’ll will try,
    and will inform u🙂

  4. BT on

    ok dude..
    im done, but my linux only detect my internal wireless adapter, still cant detect my tp-link adapter,
    btw im using backtrack 4 pre-final🙂

    Thanks Leo,

    Wouldn’t be on the Ubuntu net without you.

    Hi Leo,
    I got a problem here.

    irwan@qimo-nia:~/Downloads/compat-wireless-2010-08-29$ make
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.32-21-generic/build M=/home/irwan/Downloads/compat-wireless-2010-08-29 modules

    make: *** [modules] Error 2
    irwan@qimo-nia:~/Downloads/compat-wireless-2010-08-29$

    what can i do? i’m a noob and still learning..

    • Leonardo on

      Hi, make sure you have build-essential installed on your Ubuntu. Also try to install linux-source.

  7. irwan on

    hmm…leo..still no go..i’m still having the same error..

    installed “linux-backports-modules-wireless-generic” but stll no go.
    I’m using distro Qimo2.0

  8. anil on

    thanks a lot. i’m a totally linux newbie (a few hours) but did it following your orders. you rock

  9. Jormapaappa on

    Where do I find /dev/firmware directory?

    I am novice on Linux works, and I don’t know very much about it.

    • Leonardo on

      Hi, on Ubuntu it’s inside /dev directory as described. If you are using another Linux distribution, please try to look up in the web. If you are using Ubuntu, maybe you can try to create that directory using the command: sudo mkdir /dev/firmware

  10. Jormapaappa on

    Yes, now I have a new directory /dev/firmware. But now, how can I copy that file to there? When I copied that “sudo cp -r ~/Downloads/ar9271.fw /lib/firmware” to terminal, it says something about this: Can’t read this location.

    I have the finnish version of Ubuntu 10.04, so it’s hard to understand everything.

    • Leonardo on

      Hey, see the message: “Can’t read this location”. Maybe you are trying to copy the file from a wrong source. Be sure where you have downloaded firmware file. In the tutorial, I’ve suggested to save on you home directory (~). I think you have downloaded the file to a different directory. Check that

  11. Jormapaappa on

    Yes, you were right. I pressed that link and that file wasn’t ar9271.fw. It was “PhQCECQO.bin.part”,or is it that one? What can I do now?

    I really am a novice with Linux. I usually use Windows, but I want Ubuntu to secondary OS.

    • alvaro on

      I have the same problem. Have you solved it?? How??

  12. Pawel on

    Hi, do you know whether this driver allows to use software ap mode with this card?

  13. Jormapaappa on

    I have downloaded now “ar9271.fw” and I copied it to /lib/firmware/. I have downloaded “compat-wireless-2010-09-30”. When I write “sudo make”, terminal says:

    Why is this so hard?

  14. Pawel on

    @Jormapaappa
    I had the same error. Try the version from 2010-09-29 – it’s compiled ok for me. Nevertheless after reboot ubuntu hasn’t assigned any network interface to this card, so I’m still without success.

  15. Jormapaappa on

    I have no problem any more. I chanced my TP-link to Buffalo.
    Thanks Leo for your help.

  17. Marek M on

    “Im getting “no rule to make target ‘load'” while i run the sudo make load. What does it mean?

  18. Pawel on

    @Marek
    I use:
    sudo modprobe ath9k_htc
    instead of:
    sudo make load ath9k_htc
    and it works ok.

    • Dani on

      I have the same problem, but
      sudo modprobe ath9k_htc
      doesn’t work either.
      Btw, when I do “sudo make unload” I get “Stoping bluetooth serivce…
      *bluetooth in not running”
      Then I’ve tried both “sudo modprobe ath9k_htc” and “sudo make load ath9k_htc” I get “FATAL: Module ath9k_htc not found.”
      I’ve been using linux for some time, and I feel really dumb for not being able to make this work…
      Any help would be great!

  19. Sarfraz Ahmad on

    Assalamuallailkum!!!

    I followed all above steps but in last when i write a command
    “sudo make load ath9k_htc” it gives “no rule to make target ‘load’”.I also use the command “sudo modprobe ath9k_htc”.Result is sucess but TL-WN721N not install.
    Is any sollution for ths?????????????????????????

    • alexander on

      I have solved the same question.
      I use:
      dmesg | grep -e ath -e wlan
      It will show the “cant’t find the htc_9271.fw” so,I down the file from:
      http://wireless.kernel.org/download/htc_fw/1.3/
      then copy it into the /lib/firmware
      reboot
      That’s ok

      • Gina on

        Hi,

        When I run

        Thanks a lot

  20. Pete R on

    Worked like a charm for me.

    Many thanks for taking the time to post this solution.

  21. Ákos Paulik on

    It works! Under Ubuntu 9.10 too. Very special thanks for your help! I have searched this for months. Thank you!

  22. Thang on

    FYI, the firmware has been updated to htc_9271.fw for AR9271 chipset, which can be found here: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k_htc

    This will work with latest compat_wireless_XXX

      i have the same problem😦 after it is the same problem in “make install” and than the “make load ath9k_htc” give

      make: *** No rule to make target `load’. Stop.

      i have Linux Mint 12…

    hi,
    i am use backtrack R2 Linux so which Kernel version is suitable for me please give me the link of this kernel version?
    thank you

  25. abdou on

    hi is it on ubuntu 9.04 ?

  26. ano on

    what is the next step when the restart is done?

    Cheers.

    • Leonardo on

      The next step is trying to use your adapter connecting to some wireless networkd.

  27. Asatronom on

    Like Thang said, this won’t work unless you have the latest versions.
    The latest version of the .fw-file can be found at http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k_htc

    as of August 2011, the file is
    http://wireless.kernel.org/download/htc_fw/1.3/htc_9271.fw

    NOTE that the file name is different.
    Using this file name and the method described above I am now successfully using the TL-WN721N in Ubuntu 10.04.

    Thanks!

    Hi, (French)

    There is a small error on the 2nd command line:

    It’s not “tar -xjvf compact-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2”

    But: “tar -xjvf compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2”

    The problem is it’s compat and no compact.

    Bye and good job😉

      That’s correct now! Thanks

    Warning:
    You may or may not need to update your initramfs, you should if
    any of the modules installed are part of your initramfs. To add
    support for your distribution to do this automatically send a
    patch against ./scripts/update-initramfs. If your distribution does not require this
    send a patch against the ‘/usr/bin/lsb_release -i -s’:
    tag for your distribution to avoid this warning.
    depmod will prefer updates/ over kernel/ — OK!

    Now run:

    sudo make unload to unload all: wireless, bluetooth and ethernet modules
    sudo make wlunload to unload wireless modules
    sudo make btunload to unload bluetooth modules

    Run sudo modprobe driver-name to load your desired driver.
    If unsure reboot.
