For that with the 4.13 kernel, in terminal do

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install git dkms
git clone https://github.com/jeremyb31/rtl8723de.git
sudo dkms add ./rtl8723de
sudo dkms install rtl8723de/5.1.1.8_21285.20171026_COEX20170111-1414
Reboot

Worked for me as well on my new HP Laptop 17-ak0xx.

Thanks Jeremy. Could you please explain what those commands did. I'm still trying to learn!

Basically we just copied source code from github and used dkms to compile and install it. When you use dkms it will normally recompile the source code when you install a newer kernel as long as you stay within the same kernel series, like if you have 4.4.0-52 and update to 4.4.0-112 will usually work but I would expect it to fail if you went from 4.4.0-52 to 4.13.0-32 but it all depends on the source code and what kernel changes were made
