Please take user questions to the regular support channels,

Does the driver need non-free firmware? If yes, the card will probably
never work out of the box in Debian proper, and you might need to
install the firmware manually. Doing this will most probably solve
your issue with current Debian as well.

The best idea is to change to a Wifi adapter that has better support.
