  1. 3 months ago

    using a WLE900VX wifi card. Can not get it to work in WINDOWS 10 or Linux. Both OS do not even see the device, and I can not find drivers? Are there any? thank you for any help you can provide.

    Hi Jcertain,

    Thanks for reaching out. The 11ac radio card can't be used in Windows because Atheros didn't release 11ac driver for Windows.

    From a number of tests with updated Linux kernels, we found that:
    WLE900VX card was detected for Linux Kernel 3.18 as:
    Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA988x 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter

    The slot needs to be a miniPCIe slot. Otherwise, please use a PCIe card adapter.

    Some users had feedback that the WLE900VX card was not able to work with ath10k drivers in some PCs.

    There is no official support for this scenario with ath10k because the WLE900VX card is designed to work well when used in a Compex board.

    Best,
    Winston
