This post is about how to get the USB wifi working. The TP-Link TL-WN721N wifi Module has been used as an example but it should be possible to extend similar thing on other Wifi Modules as well.

1. In the kernel Select the Athroes HTC as module and build the kernel module.
2. Copy the generated four files - ath.ko, ath9k_hw.ko, ath9k_common.ko and ath9k_htc.ko in directory /system/lib/modules/
3. Copy the firmware file in the directory /etc/firmware/ath9k_htc/
4. Install the modules using ath.ko, ath9k_hw.ko, ath9k_common.ko
5. ifconfig wlan0 up
6. iw dev wlano scan
7. To connect to a network that does not need password use
iw wlan0 connect yourssid
8. use wpa_supplicant to connect to network that needs authentication
