I installed Debian 10 Buster Gnome on my NUC5PPYH. I have TP-Link's TL-WN722N  
v.1.10 Atheros AR9271. The wifi stick only works after installing  
firmware-ath9k-htc AND editing the NetworkManager.conf file. Debian installer  
won't offer to install free drivers for the wifi dongle. I used Calamares  
installer and debian-live-10.0.0-amd64-gnome.iso. I was desperate to make it  
connect. It always failed. Now it works.
