I had the same issue with Mint 16 a couple of years ago, just added the non-free drivers

$ sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
$ sudo apt-get install firmware-atheros
$ sudo service network-manager restart

if that doesn't work we can always add the backports from way back when, when it did work.
