I am trying to set up a pci-e wifi module on the TX2i with Spacely Connecttech carrier board. We have tried using two different pci-e modules, Qualcomm Atheros AR9580 and Qualcomm Atheros QCA9890 (ACM-DB-2), using respectively ath9k and ath10k as kernel drivers.
1. Qualcomm Atheros AR9580
For the QCA9890 I have not been able to find the correct firmware, resulting in no communication with the chip. Is there someone who has got this to work with TX2/TX2i?
2. Qualcomm Atheros QCA9890
With the AR9580 chip, things worked more out of the box and I am able to connect to wifi by manually connecting with wpa_supplicant, but the wifi is not found by the linux network manager. For this option I still have not found a solution how to automatically connect to a wifi on startup.
This is mostly due to my inexperience setting up network devices on linux, but is there someone who could provide help with this?
