    Post:
    Code:
    uname -a
    Code:
    zypper se -si kernel rtl8821
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 net
    Code:
    lsusb
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    And think of that:
    Only
    Code:
    zypper dup
    in Terminal will update your System, nothing else will do so.

    As I said, the driver is not in the Kernel and this Wireless Network Controller does not need any Firmware.

    It only needs the Driver as posted a few days ago.
    Download it and install it.
    Or try the github:
    https://github.com/tomaspinho/rtl8821ce.git

    A question besides this:
    Why do you need the r8168 driver and do not use the Kernel-build-in driver r8169 for your LAN-Card?
    Kernel driver in use: r8168
    I hope you know what you are doing.

    those are the drivers that came with my OS man i dident install them otherwise BUT i tried useing this


    Download driver directory from this repo:https://github.com/endlessm/linux/tr...less/rtl8821ce
    You can do it by this link: https://minhaskamal.github.io/DownGi...less/rtl8821ce


    Unpack zip archive.
    Change the Makefile. Line "export TopDIR ?= ..." to export "TopDIR ?= PATH TO EXTRACTED DIRECTORY".
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe -a 8821ce

    when i try to make it i get errors like

    and when i try your method i try to install via dkms this is what i get

    [sudo] password for root:

    also someone said it was a bug and i tried this method

    "
    Other Method to force WIFI


    1.Yast>System>Network Settings>Global Options>Network Setup Method>Wicked Service>OK>This is the bug we have after a fresh install. No WiFI at all.


    2.Yast>System>NetworkSettings>Global Options>Network Setup Method>NetworkManager Service>OK> Bug Fix, same as the installer.

    "

    and once i do step two to "fix" it it just says error no network running????

    Do you understand what I have written?
    Without an Driver your Wifi will not work.

    If you have Internet with your Lan-card, you can add my Repo:
    Code:
    zypper ar -f https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Sauerland:/hardware/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/ rtl8821ce-repo
    Now you can install the driver:
    Code:
    zypper in rtl8821ce-kmp-default
    If you need Bluetooth you have to install the Bluetooth-kmp:
    Code:
    zypper in rtl8821ce_bt-kmp-default
    Update of Tumbleweed will also update my drivers in that Repo automatically after a short time........
