I have installed three operating systems on this computer: Linux Mint, Ubuntu, and Arch Linux. None of them had any problems detecting and using my "Network Manager: Qualcomm Atheros 003e", and it shows up on lspci, but when the Debian graphic installer attempts to do this, it fails and tells me "No Ethernet Card" detected. I've attempted to use the ISO you've provided for me with propryetary firmware bundled into it here: https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/8.7.1/amd64/iso-cd/, but that couldn't find it either. It's unusual because I see (or at least I think I see) my drivers listed, and when i select them manually  

What's going on? How do I get this to work? Obviously there are linux drivers out there for Debian to use with my machine, they're just not in Debian's isos for some reason.

Thank you for your time. I love your work.

There is a package "firmware-atheros" .

If I were you i would install it.  Maybe that will solve your problem.
