Okay, I figured it out now. After unpacking, configuring, making and installing and then copying the ath10k firmware as in the link that you gave me in #340, I figured through "dmesg | grep ath10k" that the system couldn't find the firmware. It was both in the wrong folder and it had a weird name:

So instead of the file
firmware-5.bin being at
/lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA6174/hw2.1

I had a file named
firmware-5.bin_SW_RM.1.1.1-00157-QCARMSWPZ-1 being at
/lib/firmware/ath10k/ath10k-firmware/QCA6174/hw2.1

I copied the whole content of the "ath10k-firmware" folder one level up and renamed the file to firmware-5.bin and now it works!! Also the LAN module still works ;)
