I have a Netgear A7000 USB 3.0 Wireless dongle.

Code: Select all

sudo apt install build-essential
sudo apt install bc
sudo apt install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
sudo apt install git dkms
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
git clone
cd rtl8814au
sudo make install
sudo cp -R . /usr/src/rtl8814au-4.3.21
sudo dkms build -m rtl8814au -v 4.3.21
sudo dkms install -m rtl8814au -v 4.3.21
Ran all of that. Rebooted.

Wireless device is operational and working very nicely BUT
on running
dkms status
I see the following in the output:
rtl8814au, 4.3.21, 5.0.0-27-generic, x86_64: installed (WARNING! Diff between built and installed module!)

Don't know the answer. But in your stead, I'd be practical about this. If it's working fine, don't "fix" it until it's broken. :wink:
