Ubuntu – Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 wireless not working on lenovo with 14.04.3


Help, I've tried the other fixes used for ubuntu 15.10 and the Qualcomm adapter but nothing is working for my lenovo ideapad 500 with the Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 wireless adapter running 14.04.3. could i be using the wrong terminal commands? im using this set of commands found in another post:

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) git
echo "options ath10k_core skip_otp=y" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath10k_core.conf
wget http://filebin.ca/2LVgpjSgiT56/backp...-11-05.tar.bz2
unzip backp...-11-05.tar.bz2
cd backports-ath10k-2015-11-05
make defconfig-ath10k
sudo make install
git clone https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware.git
sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/ath10k/ /lib/firmware/
sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/QCA9377 /lib/firmware/ath10k/
cp firmware-5.bin_WLAN.TF.1.0-00267-1 firmware-5.bin

any help appreciated
