WiFi for Asus E200HA notebook

March 24, 2016 — BarryK
I have reported some things broken when run Quirky Linux on my new Asus E200HA baby notebook.

WiFi is one of them.

I did find a link to a driver, with firmware:
https://github.com/ajaybhatia/Qualcomm-Atheros-QCA9377-Wifi-Linux

However, I discovered that the ath10k driver in the 4.4.6 Linux kernel is OK, just needs firmware.

From the above link, I got out this firmware:
# pwd
/mnt/sdb2/lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0
# ls
board-2.bin board.bin firmware-5.bin


...where sdb2 is my USB Flash drive.

'dmesg' reports some firmware still missing:
ath10k/cal-pci-0000:01:00.0.bin

...however, the ath10k driver works.

Here is another firmware link:
