Plugged both WiFi dongles. RTL8192CU is a 300 mbps 802.1n model sold under BOLSE. The RTL8811AU is a 600mbps 802.1ac model sold under Wide Tiger.
Neither are working but I see that the older model is recognized.

Re: Realtek RTL8811AU USB WiFi is not working

JeremyB, LM 18.3 is installed, updated, and working fine. Now I have ethernet but no WiFi (which I will fix later). The Realtek chip RTL8811AU does not have drivers for some Linux kernels, but there is a driver in the Ubuntu repository for a similar RTL chip which is supposed to work, and will try it later today. Also, there may be a 3rd party driver on github. Will post the results. Thanks for your help.

Code: Select all

 sudo apt-get install dkms git build-essential
 git clone https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux.git
 cd rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux
 sudo make -f Makefile.dkms install
Reboot and check BIOS/UEFI settings to make sure Secure Boot is disabled and it should work

jeremy8, unfortunately, this didn't work for me and apologize for the long delay in replying.
P.S: Secure Boot is always off.

After my last post, removed all traces of the rtl8812 installation attempt and reinstalled it, so that you can see the error messages the process generates during the installation. The results of modprobe -c | grep 0811; locate rtl8812au.ko returned nothing.See end of post.

After reboot:

ineuw@lm183dt64b ~ $ modprobe -c | grep 0811; locate rtl8812au.ko
alias usb:v0BDAp0811d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*in* rtl8812au

I also executed the previous command and I checked the folder there is no make.log

Executed dmesg and it's an 858 line document so it's better if I upload it as a zip file.

JeremyB, installed the latest kernel 4.15.0-29 and it works, (as opposed to 4.15.0-24, which does not). I repeated the instructions from github and this is the error I received from:

sudo make -f Makefile.dkms install

make clean
