I have the same problem, xubuntu 16.04. the wireless works in windows xp with speed of 150 mbps, however in ubuntu  the wireless jumps from 39 mbps to 1 mbps ( most of the time 1 mbps). But I can connet to internet.
Before I had lubuntu 12.04 and it worked perfect.

  Support for Qualcomm Atheros AR928X WiFi chipset

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  A number of other Ubuntu users and myself have encountered difficulty
  when upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS due to our WiFi chipset not being
  supported. When I inquired about it on the Ubuntu Forums, I was
  informed that this chipset was last known to work on Ubuntu 14.04.3,
  and no longer in Ubuntu 14.04.4.

  I had bought this network adapter about a year ago from a Linux-
  friendly retailer specifically because it said it would work
  harmoniously with Ubuntu. But because it is not supported in 16.04, I
  am left without Internet access on my desktop, which I require for
  work and for pleasure.

  Unfortunately, connecting to my router with an Ethernet cord is not an
  option, as the distance is too great and awkward. In the meantime, I
  will have to revert to Ubuntu 14.04.3 to hopefully get Internet on my
  computer. I hope this will be resolved soon. I'd really like to
  continue using the latest Ubuntu versions.
