RTL8812AU latest kernel issues

Thu Jan 25, 2018 10:19 am

Been using the drivers thus far with minimal issues, latest update renders it undiscoverable. I have installed via 'make' this version which is supposed to be patched for latest kernel no joy...

Any help would be appreciated btw alternative boot does not work.

Cheers.

Hi,

I'm wondering if anything came of this. I just did a fresh install of Solus today and was able to make and install the driver from the OP's link to github.

After install and reboot, I ran the following:

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe -r 8812au
and

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe 8812au
but when I navigate to Wifi via the menu, it tells me No Wi-Fi Adapter Found.

I ran

Code: Select all

lsusb
to confirm it was recognizing my usb wifi (which it is).

So now I'm stuck without wifi and an unhappy wife because my tower is propped on our fireplace mantle so I can atleast have a wired connection.

I am running 4.15.11.61-current and I installed the headers and system.devel (obviously if I was able to make and install successfully).

Thanks for the help in advance!
