What's being used reliably?

+1 for ath9k. I am using a TP-Link TL-WN722N (ath9k_htc). I have two. Inexpensive, high-gain antenna, quite reliable despite regular hard work.

Inadvertent enabling of QoS while idle breaks connectivity in a small range of kernel versions:
Found in versions linux/4.15.4-1, linux/4.15.11-1, linux/4.14.17-1
Fixed in versions linux/4.16.5-1, linux/4.15.17-1
