Good Afternoon Everyone,
I am not sure exactly if this is the right forum to ask, as my problem is using Angstrom Ubuntu on a Beaglebone, but I thought it would be worth asking. My problem is that I am having issues getting my wireless adapter working.
-Angstrom Ubuntu (Made from this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJ9nUqYMjqs&noredirect=1)
TP-Link TL-WN422G Wireless Adapter (Atheros AR9271 chipset)
-I have had another usb adapter working flawlessly, so I do not think the problem is the beaglebone. This also tells me that my etc/network/interfaces is setup correctly. That usb adapter just did not support an access point, which I need for my project.
-The usb wireless adapter *has* worked on occasion. I would estimate once every twenty or so attempts. Let me clarify "worked": when I type iwconfig, it shows the wlan0 and its assigned ip address. I was able to ssh into that ip for a couple seconds before it stalled and I had to reset my setup.
-I have posted this on another forum, not trying to hide that. Just running into a dead end with someone who has helped me there and I am looking to broaden the crowd of those who may possibly help
-it is saying I can't create tags, so some editing has been done (only using code tags, but it is thinking something else is a tag)
My ultimate goal is to use the beaglebone as an access point with the wireless adapter. My research has me believe that this chipset and driver will allow for the beaglebone to act as an access point.
My setup is as follows: The beaglebone is connected by an ethernet cable to a switch, along with my desktop. I access the beaglebone via ssh with my desktop. That works without a problem.
The problem begins when I plug in the usb wireless adapter. After about 2 seconds, my ssh session stalls. When I pull the usb adapter out, it resumes. I have been using that 2 second timeframe to get some debugging in. (Type in command, plug in usb, hit enter before the 2 seconds)
lsusb gives me:
lsmod gives me:

after removing the usb adapter, dmesg gives me:

This part loops about a dozen times, im assuming the "Failed to initialize the device" is my problem.

My guess is that something is conflicting with the initialization of the device, I am just not sure how I would find out what the conflict is. Any guidance on what I should be investigating would be greatly appreciated!
If anymore information is needed, please let me know and I will post it asap.
