I'm trying to install it using the ar9170 driver, but ar9170-firmware wont install, are there any other solutions?

But why wont it install? Is it in a package (binary blob), or compiled with kernel?

The ar9170usb driver is obsolete. carl9170 handles these chips now, it's in the kernel, so you don't need anything extra, just activate it in the kernel config. The required firmware is in the linux-firmware package.
