AR9271

Atheros 9271 chipset is present in a few Wi-Fi adapters such as Unex_DNUA-93F WiFi USB adapters

DNUA-93F

TPE-N150USB

I opened mine and it's exactly the same hardware layout:

The connector is missing compared to the FCC photos.
So probably one can solder back a Hirose U.FL / IPX connector. Large photo here.

SW

 apt-get install firmware-atheros
