First part at https://superuser.com/questions/975564/netbsd-and-tp-link-tl-wn727n-atheros-ar9271-or-ralink-rt5370

So, I've installed NetBSD 7 and device shown again as ugen(ugein, lol).

ugen0 at uhub4 port 8 
ugen0: Mediatek 802.11 n WLAN, rev 2.01/00, addr 2

Then I'm installed FreeBSD 10.2 and ugen again.

usbconfig gives me ugen4.3: <product 0x7601 vendor 0x148f> at usbus4, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH(480Mbps) pwr=ON (90ma)

So, what's next? Buying new dongle is a last thing, which I'll make.


Again, ugen0 is no interface with you can interact (W)LAN communication. Try dmesg | grep "not configured" if there is a line with your pci & vendor id, your device is not supported. Maybe 9271 isn't supported by Freebsd.


In the end I investigated that this usb dongle just doesn't have any support. NDIS drivers also won't work. No way currently. Thanks to all.
