Atheros AR928x wireless network adaptor for LL2.0 ?

  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Pentium T3200@2.0GHz (2cores) on an Asus X71Q

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel GM45 Express Chipset

  • Kernel: 4.x
I have a 64bit Win 7 - LL2 dual boot set-up on my Asus X71Q laptop.

Within Win 7, downloading the Atheros AR928x wireless network adaptor increased my internet connection speed from 150 Mb/s to 300 Mb/s, which makes a significant difference when downloading larger files. However, on LL2.0, my connection speed is only 150 Mb/s. Is there an Ubuntu version of the AR928x adaptor, that I can download for LL2.0, that will hopefully boost my internet connection speed to around 300 Mb/s?  Many thanks for any help.

Kind regards
Mike

64bit OS (32-bit on Samsung netbook) installed in Legacy mode on MBR-formatted SSDs (except pi which uses a micro SDHC card):
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M@2.4GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - LL 3.8 32-bit (64-bit too 'laggy')
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.6/Win8.1 dual-boot, LL works fine with kernel 4.15
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL4.6, works well with kernel 4.4; 4.15 doesn't work
