I am having trouble getting my wifi adapter working ubuntu 20.04 LTS. I have followed the instructions at the following link, and have tried multiple files contained within the firmware section with no success. I succeeded in getting my ethrenet controller working by installing the correct drivers, however, I have woefully failed to get my wifi adapter to work. I have spent an embarrassing amount of time trying to solve this issue. Please help.

Qualcomm Atheros Device 0042 (rev 31) driver

Here is some information on my current system.

Kernel: Linux 5.4.0-1025-gcp Architecture: x86-64

  • Interestingly, I booted into the grub menu, advanced options, and set my Kernal to a previous version. All my driver issues that I have been having are now fixed. Wifi, Audio, BlueTooth. If anyone has any insight into this, I would appreciate it.
