I'm trying to resolve issues with my wifi running slowly relative to other computers on the same network/location. When connected to the local network a speedtest.net runs at 1-2Mbit from my computer, but when I USB tether to my phone and connect it to the same wifi network (cellular data off) I get 100Mbit+ speed tests.
I've been trying to play with the drivers from https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware, though I don't know what I'm doing very well.
It appears that I'm loading firmware from
/lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA6174/hw2.1/firmware-5.bin, I notice that there's a directory
/lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA6174/hw3.0, I am wondering if I should experiment with loading other firmware versions available?
If I can try this, can someone tell me how I go about directing the OS to load a different firmware version?
Running linux mint 18.04.
