02:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros Device [168c:0041] (rev 20)

Now i'm using Ubuntu MATE 15.10. I have installed some other Linux Distro. But none of them has driver for this device.

Kernel Version :

uname -r


Please help me to find driver for Qualcomm Atheros WiFi Device. Please give me a solution.

Laptop : Lenovo G 50-40


I solved the problem by using the following steps.. it works on Linuxmint

wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/nmgb5li6sd6i7ij/backath10k-dkms_2.0_all.deb

dpkg -i backath10k-dkms_2.0_all.deb


  • But did it work with a 4.2 kernel? I have seen reports that it doesn't work with 4.2 as stated in your question – Jeremy31 Feb 11 '16 at 21:51
  • Extremely sorry Sir @Jeremy31 .. I installed Linuxmint 17.3 with 3.19.0-32-generic Kernel ... So WiFi driver is working now. Thank you sir. – Dipankar Nalui Feb 13 '16 at 2:49
