    picoreplayer and atheros wifi dongle

    Warning - lots of ignorance will be on display here.

    I'm trying to use a Netgear WNA1100 wifi dongle in my pi Zero. Pcp sees and identifies it, and tries to load the firmware htc-9271.fw. It doesn't find it.

    I run tce-ab and search for 'firmware' - it comes up with (among others) firmware-atheros. I look at the files in firmware-atheros, and they include the one I need. I say 'install', and its says 'already installed!'.

    I look in lib/firmware, and some atheros stuff IS there, but not the bits I need.
    I try to delete firmware-atheros with tce-audit so I can re-install it, but the computer says 'no'.

    As I said earlier, ignorance is on display here... what is it I don't know that will enable me to install the latest firmware package?
