[SOLVED] New problem with Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 on Debian

Hi,

I've been dealing with the exact same problem described in post http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=127880&p=661934#p661934
and tried the solution Andros705 proposed.
But the firmware still does not load.


here is the output of "dmesg|grep 'ath\|firmw'" :

Curious, because I had a lot of Qualcomm Atheros Wireless Cards and the firmware came in the kernel or in the firmware-linux metapackage with the non-free repo. Had you tried to apt update and install the firmware-linux?

Hi,

My wifi finally works!
Thanks for your answer.

I also tried proposed solutions from those pages :

http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=132008&p=639267&hilit=atheros+QCA9377#p639267
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=134833&p=655427&hilit=atheros+QCA9377#p655427

the page already referred to in my first post, and some other solutions from the French forum on Debian.

I'm not sure which one made the wifi work.

Somethings are sure though :

1) the command "dmesg|grep 'ath\|firmw'" still outputs those error lines, the same as in my first post,

Code: Select all
[    5.143358] ath10k_pci 0000:03:00.0: firmware: failed to load ath10k/pre-cal-pci-0000:03:00.0.bin (-2)
[    5.143361] ath10k_pci 0000:03:00.0: Direct firmware load for ath10k/pre-cal-pci-0000:03:00.0.bin failed with error -2
[    5.143390] ath10k_pci 0000:03:00.0: firmware: failed to load ath10k/cal-pci-0000:03:00.0.bin (-2)
[    5.143392] ath10k_pci 0000:03:00.0: Direct firmware load for ath10k/cal-pci-0000:03:00.0.bin failed with error -2


those two errors also appear when booting the debian session. But the wifi is working anyway. So they do not keep the wifi card from working.

2) With the usual NetworkManager and nm-applet, I could connect to a wireless service but, in firefox, the pages would'nt load.
I tried then connecting to the wifi with "Connman UI Setup" (https://packages.debian.org/jessie/net/connman) and it worked fine.


So, it's pretty much like the world we live in, it works sometimes, but we do not understand how ...

Thanks to all Debian users who spend their time helping new users like me!
