The WiFi card information is shown below:
*-network description: Wireless interface product: AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) vendor: Qualcomm Atheros physical id: 0 bus info: [email protected]:01:00.0 logical name: wlan0 version: 01 serial: b4:74:9f:b4:7e:96 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress msix bus_master cap_list ethernet physical wireless configuration: broadcast=yes driver=ath9k driverversion=4.9.201-tegra firmware=N/A latency=0 link=no multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11 resources: irq:84 memory:13000000-1300ffff

AR928X Wireless Network Adapter. So, it should work, right? However, firmware field appears empty. How can I make it work?

What distribution are you running and does the the wireless interface show up? Can you share the output of ip a?

Why don't you just post it as text in a forum post with code or quote tags? It sees your wireless interface, what happens when you try to connection to your wifi?

What currently happens when you try to connect to a wireless network?

AR928X Wireless Network Adapter

First try.. open ubuntu, find additional drivers [in all programs] click and let it search for a better driver. and install it.. If that comes up with nothing this was the answer to a similar question in the Ubuntu forums """"I entered the wifi configuration through a browser and I saw my wifi key was encrypted as WPA-PSK, I changed it to WPA2-PSK and wifi worked.""

In Software&Updates/Additional Drivers shows No additional drivers available. Is there any way to force the search?

Is your system a laptop or desktop system?

Right....me thinks..........Ar928x should run on ath9k driver set .... go to the software repository for you distribution, in the search box put ath9k enter then look down the list for atheros ath9k drivers, they should have self installed, if they have then uninstall wait a couple of mins and re-install if not installed then install them... and give it another try

So neither, looks like it isn't your typical device but a developer kit of something.
Try installing this package and then reboot and then try connecting to the wifi again.
Code:
firmware-ath9k-htc - QCA ath9k-htc Firmware

been having a read.. we may all be barking up the wrong tree [or going barking mad] found this....

RedHawk Linux is a high-performance RTOS available for the Jetson platform, along with associated NightStar real-time development tools, CUDA/GPU enhancements, and a framework for hardware-in-the-loop and man-in-the-loop simulations.

Try installing them from the Ubuntu repos as I mentioned before.
