[Bug 1568635] Re: wireless card (Killer n1525) doesn't work


Did this issue start happening after an update/upgrade?  Was there a
prior kernel version where you were not having this particular problem?

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer
to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Please test the latest
v4.6 kernel[0].

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following
tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as

Thanks in advance.

  wireless card (Killer n1525) doesn't work

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Killer 1525 wireless card doesn't work on Ubuntu Mate with stock drivers. It sometimes can detect networks, but cannot connect to WPA protected WIFI.
  "dmesg | grep ath" shows several thousand of lines "failed to start hw scan: -108". Problem can be fixed by following the steps outlined here:

  Please include correct board.bin and firmware-?.bin files to Ubuntu
  Mate 16.04 distro.

  In my case wifi worked after I deleted board.bin and firmware-4.bin
  both  /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA6174/hw2.1/ and
  /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA6174/hw3.0/ then copied
  firmware-5.bin_SW_RM.1.1.1-00157-QCARMSWPZ-1 as firmware-4.bin and
  firmware-4.bin. Finally, I saved resulting board.bin, firmware-4.bin
  and firmware-5.bin to both ..../2.1/ and ..../3.0/ folders
