Hi Dennis,

Thank you so very much. On my new Acer R5-471T-52EE, your solution fixed the WiFI problem!!!

I have Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS, I upgraded kernel to "4.2.0-21-generic" and then followed your solution exactly. The dmesg also showed me the following messages

[ 1.682634] ath10k_pci 0000:01:00.0: pci irq msi-x interrupts 8 irq_mode 0 reset_mode 0

[ 4.032114] ath10k_pci 0000:01:00.0: debug 0 debugfs 1 tracing 1 dfs 0 testmode 0

Despite failure to find file "firmware-5.bin" I was able to get wifi properly for the first time on my ubuntu.

Thank you again
