[Freedombox-discuss] AR9271 USB dongle vs. network-manager

It appears that our favorite ath9k_htc free-firmwared wifi dongle does
not work with current (1.4.x) network-mananger versions.  In my tests,
it is unable to associate with open wifi networks (at least), and when
it is used in AP mode ("connection sharing"), other devices in turn are
unable to associate with it. (I've seen this happen both with WPA-PSK
enabled and with no encryption enabled.)

A workaround is to add something like this to
/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and then restart


Possibly relevant bugreport:


Many thanks for Thomas Haller (<thaller> on freenode) for helping me out
with this.
