Hi Gabriele, I have had success with eeprom_ar6320_2p1_NFA344i.bin.
I am also using Gentoo (but v3.19.3) but I have also applied these patches/commits: - http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.wireless.general/137030 - https://github.com/kvalo/ath/commit/d63955b33b3bee45d784ffdfafeb93076c765660 Also, I didn't use that disassemble.py script, I used: - https://gist.github.com/kazikcz/8e5845ad84ca251aa295 I also had problems with calibration, I had to pass skip_otp=y to the module: $ cat /etc/modprobe.d/ath10k.conf options ath10k_core skip_otp=y FWIW: $ lspci -vs 05:00.0 05:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros Device 003e (rev 20) Subsystem: Bigfoot Networks, Inc. Device 1525 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 31 Memory at f7800000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2M] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel driver in use: ath10k_pci Kernel modules: ath10k_pci I give a huge thanks to the individuals on this mailing list for helping me; I'm just happy to give back where I can :) I would interested in knowing from where you got your drivers/board files. I had to download mine from my laptop manufacturer's (MSI) website. Note: I understand that ath10k doesn't support encryption yet. But I haven't successfully been able to connect to my open AP as yet...
