Running the 4.4 kernel seems to make the system sluggish, in fact had a hard time responding this morning. No sleep, or other power setting enabled, when it did respond graphics were very dim for some time.
still no wifi with the 4.4 kernel boot. Thanks for the help attempting to resolve this issue.

On to Ubuntu

Ubuntu likely won't change things and I am not saying that as a LM fan boy response

Code: Select all

cd rtl8814AU
make clean
make
sudo make install
Reboot and use Grub menu to reboot into the 4.4 kernel
NOTE: You should not have the USB device plugged in during the build process. For some reason this causes issues.

This worked just fine when I was using a previous version of linux mint . But I am now on a fresh install of Linux Mint 19 with the 4.15.0-33-generic kernel and i am getting all kinds of errors after I cd into the folder and type make.


i also used these instructions

sudo apt-get install git build-essential
git clone https://github.com/diederikdehaas/rtl8814AU.git
cd rtl8814AU
make
sudo make install

and when i type make i get this :

Ok, I guess I solved my issue with getting the adapter working. However, it is a 1300mbps card and on the previous verion of linux mint with it installed I was getting a lot faster speeds. I am sure I was over 100mbps last version of linux. Now I am gettingn something like 60mbps. The computer hooked directly to the router is gettingn 260mbps. Any idea on what would be killing the speed?

Brilliant, (thus far)...worked a treat, many thanks.

I've been trying since 4.13. 0. 43 (9 kernels!) to try and get this to work, without success.

Thanks again, DC
