Debian – Qualcom 6174 Wifi not working

On my new Acer Nitro laptop, after installing Debian 9.4, found that Wifi was not working.

Looking at dmesg output looked like the Qualcom Athreos 10K was not found.

Installed firmware-linux package, but still did not work.

So visited the site as below

 

Clicked on the commit message on master

 

Clicked the download link fir linux-firmware-master.tar.gz

Expanded the file and copied the ath10k folder to /lib/firware/

Restarted the system and Wifi started working.
