The QCA9565/AR9565 (PCI ID 168c:0036) was first supported by the Linux
kernel's ath9k driver at Linux 3.7.

For device support on your Wheezy system, you would need to install and use
a backported Linux kernel available from the wheezy-backports repository.

The ath9k driver does not require any files provided by the firmware-atheros
package for its use.
