Fully supported AR2417 WiFi doesn't work in CentOS

I used Fedora on this computer since Fedora 16 and every single one supported this WiFi card with open source driver. CentOS 7 is based on Fedora 19, I remember this card working with Fedora 19. But in CentOS 7 it doesn't work. When I boot to Fedora 21 on other partition, it works. Heck, I even remember Trisquel working on this computer with all free firmware and drivers.
Code: Select all
-network:0 UNCLAIMED description: Ethernet controller product: AR2417 Wireless Network Adapter [AR5007G 802.11bg] vendor: Qualcomm Atheros physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:05:00.0 version: 01 width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm bus_master cap_list configuration: latency=64 maxlatency=28 mingnt=10 resources: memory:febf0000-febfffff
So, why is this driver removed? How do I put it back?
