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


I see your still having trouble.
Follow the example I gave above is all I can advise you.

1)  Compile a kernel from the GIT source  I mentioned, its is now officially 4.3rc1.
Don't ask me how to compile it, your have Centos which is Red Hat based, so go to your Linux Distribution Forums and find out how to compile on your distro.

2) Move the firmware to the proper folder and test it.
What folder is that. I don't know. on my Debian it is /lib/firmware/ath10k/...etc
Again Bing it and Find it.........

Nothing you put in the Firmware folder will affect your computer, it
might not load the wifi but will not affect anything else. So don't be
afraid to try.

The Kernel will either compile or it won't, this will take hours to
finish, so start it late and go to bed. Or a movie might be good. ON TV
with commercials so you can sneak a peek at your computer for a status.

Good Luck and Enjoy the Challenge.
