[Bug 1383184] Re: Atheros Qualcomm Killer N1525 Wireless-AC [168c:003e] is not supported


Nice work, Killer Wireless-AC 1525 is working great with solution #209 and installation of dkms before.
However, all my wireless usb adapters do not work anymore... I can see them with lsusb but they are not present in iwconfig or ifconfig. Seems like all other wifi drivers are failing. Any solution to get them back?
sudo modprobe rtl8187 does not work to load the module:
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'rtl8187': Invalid argument
Thanks for your help!

Bug description:


  Wily(15.10) could not work with and don't need Adam's dkms package 1.0
  or 1.1

  Wily(15.10) has already fixed the driver part, and the firmware part
  is in progress.

  For now, you guys could use 15.10(purge the ath10k-dkms if you tried
  installing it), and make a copy of
  firmware.git/plain/ath10k/QCA6174 into /lib/firmware/ath10k/

  15.10 will work in a week by a simple `apt upgrade`

  Distros before 15.10(lower than 4.2 kernel) please keep using the
  dkms(which will be relocated soon)
