Wi-Fi driver rtl8812au removing

Post by alex-n3050 » Sat May 26, 2018 7:24 am

I use NEFIS WF2190 usb Wi-Fi adaptor.
I need to remove the rtl8812au driver or disable it.
The driver found (see listing dmesg - allocated bold), I try to remove:
When you try to remove rtl8812au with the following command
sudo dkms install -m rtl8812au -v 4.3.8_12175.20140902
gives the answer:
Error! The module / version combo: rtl8812au-4.3.8_12175.20140902
is not located in the DKMS tree.
For this driver for some reason the name wlan0 is reserved, but it for some reason
renamed to wlan1. Where is this driver physically located?
How to disable it or assign it a wlan0 interface.
At me with the wlan1 interface for some reason does not authorize on an access point.

dmesg output:
