WLE600VX - 802.11ac 2.4/5GHz miniPCIe Radio SolutionThe WLE600VX is an IEEE 802.11ac wireless adapter that operates in 2.4GHz and 5.0 GHz bands, available in PCIe mini card form factor. Featuring QCA9882 chipset, the WLE600VX dramatically increases the overall throughput up to 867Mbps with 2 x 2 MIMO technique. Leveraging the revolutionary 11ac technology, WLE600VX sets a new benchmark in throughput and range, making it ideal for consumer and enterprise applications, such as video, voice and data transmission. The WLE600VX is backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n and fully supports industry standards compliant security. Attention : Atheros 11ac radio can't be used in PC or laptop, as BIOS do not detects it, as Atheros do not release such driver. Pls read reviews for more details about supported PC boards
We found that with our Linux PC the WLE600VX card radio (using miniPCIe to PCIe adapter card) is working well.
Installed Ubuntu Vivid Vervet Alpha 2 with WLE600VX already inserted. Wireless detected immediately so the OS installation proceeded with automatically downloading updates.
Running test for a day, no crashes, stable pings.

800Mbps UDP goodput! Review by paul
Price Value Quality
We was successful to have the card being recognized in the Barebone DSS-1300 platform, in the Shuttle DS81 the card was not recognized...
We can also use a standard mini ITX Board running an Intel i5 4570 CPU.
We use ath10k. driver (800Mbps UDP goodput!)
we compile the driver from backports.
The avarage duration of our experiments is half a day, it looks very stable (like in no crashes and stable bitrates)
OS : Ubuntu 14.04, other versions were also fine. (Posted on 6/24/2015)
