If that firmware doesn't help, you could need a newer kernel and firmware from stretch-backports if your hardware is recent. You find out and report your wi-fi PCI ID from the output of "lspci" in the terminal.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Foliate 1.5.3, Minitube 3.1, wine-staging 4.14, Virtual Box 5.2.32 & 6.0.10, Pale Moon 28.6.1, Waterfox 56.2.13
