    You need also the Update Repo from Akoellh to get the Drivers build against the new Kernel:
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...p_42.3_Update/

    PS Packman Repo is listet 3 times, Repo 4, 6 and 7, one is enough.......

    Unfortunetally didnt't work, after update rtlwifi firmware disabled so i had to rollback. I read on other forums about dkms method adding to kernel, will try that with snapshoting before

    There is no package named rtlwifi-firmware in that Repo, only a license-Package.

    You need:
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...1.1.noarch.rpm
    Also the kmp-package from that Repo:
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...3.6.x86_64.rpm

    I have made some research and there is a problem with rtl8821ae on other distros as well, there is solution with adding module with dkms but i failed doing that. Maybe in kernel src there is similiar driver for rtl which is replaced after mkinitrd ? if not i will just do remove install again after some kernel refreshes
