Hi  All ,

I am using SDK 1.7/1.8  for our custom board designed based on ls1021aiot. My question is Is there a support for Atheros wifi module. I have Module connected on mini PCIe and I can see foillowing when I do ''lspci -kv'

Is there a inbuilt driver support  for "Qualcomm Atheros AR9580 Wireless Network Adapter" . Is there a module/driver that I need to enabled through menuconfig. Do I need to custom build the driver ? . Is there a basic support for atheros WIFI module.?? How can I enable it or use it?.  Appreciate your help on this. 

 

Thanks

Dhruval
