Fedora 25: ath10k firmware not found [closed]

So my wifi is inexplicably slow on my acer VN7-572G, and dmesg says could not fetch firmware file 'ath10k/QCA6174/hw3.0/firmware-5.bin'

In that firmware folder (hw3.0), I have board-2.bin board.bin firmware-4.bin notice_ath10k_firmware-4.txt

In hw2.1 (I don't know what those numbers mean), I have board-2.bin board.bin firmware-5.bin notice_ath10k_firmware-5.txt

This appears to match the latest in https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmw...

Here's the full output of my demsg | grep ath10k:

Unfortunately there is no ath10k Free Firmware that works. I got the solution on this question

which is basically

cd /usr/share

git clone https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware

cp -r ath10k-firmware /usr/lib/firmware/ath10k
