I am using a buitl-in atheros Wireless chip on my laptop, bu tthe connection is always at 1 Mbit/s. It does not matter whether I am close to the router or far.
According tho the specification this chip supports modern connection methods, and the router connects to other device just fine from 54Mbits/s and higher:
“The QCA9377 is a single-die wireless local area network (WLAN) and Bluetooth combination solution to support 1 × 1 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN standards and Bluetooth 5.0 + HS, designed to deliver superior integration of WLAN/Bluetooth and low-energy technology.”
The driver being used is: ath10k_pci on Fedora.
I have tried to force the rate, run on different channels and tried using iwconfig and modprobe tricks, but whenever I look a the connection or restarting and retrying, the connections remains to be 1Mbits/s

My question, what can I do so my wifi adapter/connection can connect at 5.5Mbits/s or even 11Mbits/s
