[Bug 1436940] Re: Atheros wifi 168c:0041(QCA6174) is not supported


I was able to get my Atheros wifi, version 0168c:0041 working as expected using the latest Linux Next Kernel Git;

And the procedure described on this Fedora bug report site, by  Susi Lehtola

It simple involves using the firmware in the proper folder (QCA6174) mentioned by Diego in comment 39 and 40.
And the latest Kernel, which I compiled on my Debian Stretch distribution.

       resources: irq:34 memory:f0800000-f09fffff

There are remaining issues such as speed and total functionality, but
this is the first time I could get any such results and it seems this
driver is reaching its final phase.
