 > lxde iso running.

You installed a lxde debian 10 iso? Then connected an
ar9271 wifi card and it
worked?

Are you sure the iso you used is free software and
you have not added any piece of non free
software?

The package of software which makes ar9271 work
is called
1.4.0-97-g75b3e59+dfsg-3

To get the usb ar9271 wifi to working
I had to edit file
/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
into
[main]
plugins=ifupdown,keyfile

[ifupdown]
managed=false

[device]
wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no
