I've just installed Fedora 26 on my Lenovo y520 but cannot get the wifi to work. When I try to turn it on in Wi-Fi Settings it's "Unavailable". Here's the version i'm running:


lspci :

03:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 31)

I can see with lshw that the wireless card is disabled:

*-network DISABLED
            description: Wireless interface
            product: QCA9377 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter

            resources: irq:330 memory:a4000000-a41fffff

I've checked previous posts about similar issues but that didn't help. In particular this one suggested to check if the following files exist (they do) :



Would be great if someone could help me figure this out, thanks !

wifi OFF in BIOS ?
airplay Mode ON ?
man rfkill ?

you need to comile anything !
driver and firmware come with the kernel !
there are no modules.conf under /etc/modules/ related to ath10k (in my case) !

in an terminal: dmesg -w
in an another:
- sudo modprobe -vr ath10k_pci   [1]
- sudo modprobe -vs ath10k_pci
should load the modules for your wifi.
first terminal will show what is going on, esp. if driver/firmware is loaded

[1] maybe you need to unload some more modules, related to ath10k; lsmod will show them

lsmod | grep -i ath:

ath10k_pci             45056  0
ath10k_core           299008  1 ath10k_pci
mac80211             745472  1 ath10k_core
ath                         28672  1 ath10k_core
cfg80211               602112  3 mac80211,ath,ath10k_core

rfkill list:

0: hci0: Bluetooth
    Soft blocked: yes
    Hard blocked: no
1: acer-wireless: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no
2: acer-bluetooth: Bluetooth
    Soft blocked: yes
    Hard blocked: no
3: phy0: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no

my kernels are/firmware is:


ls -l /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0

It looks like you missed some of them ?!
