Review of Linux Compatibility

The PCI-Express card TP-Link TL-WDN4800 has the PCI ID 168c:0030. The card bases on the Atheros chipset AR9380 and is recognized by the Linux kernel (e.g. Ubuntu 12.10) in the following way:

20:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9300 Wireless LAN adaptor (rev 01)
Subsystem: Atheros Communications Inc. Device [168c:3112]

The card is fully supported by the kernel module ath9k. If an older version of the driver is used the connection can show a very low bandwidth. In this case it is necessary to disable the hardware encryption of the WiFi chipset to allow a higher data throughput. To achieve this the Kernel module ath9k has to be loaded with an additional option, which can be set in the file /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf:

options ath9k nohwcrypt=1
