I'm trying to get a USB wireless card that runs off of the AR9271 chipset to work with Centos 6.2.
I read this description for compat-wireless and wanted to use a package manager (i.e. yum) because I wanted a relatively easy uninstall if it didn't work. I found a package on ELRepo. I installed kmod-compat-wireless.i686 via
yum install as root. After rebooting and sticking the USB wireless card in, I didn't see anything that indicated that wireless was working. What should I be looking for? How can I make sure that this driver is loaded?
