    Default RTL8723DE issues and Kernel 5.5

    hi

    a friend has a HP laptop with build in RTL8723DE, for issues related to power drain I switched him over from Leap to Tumble and update him every few months, so far been working okay.
    However as of todays update where he went from 5.4 to 5.5 the RTL8723DE no longer works, this has happened before in the past, but most of the time a remove/reinstall solved it or in one case removing the firmware package.

    I am using the drivers from https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...USE_Tumbleweed

    Just the rtlwifi_new-extended-kmp-default 20200221_k5.5.4_1-2.1


    I have 2 questions

    1) is there an good out of the box wifi dongle which simple works with Tumbleweed/kernel 5.5+ as I am getting tired of this tbh does the Asus USB-AC51 AC600 work ?

    2) anybody have any idea how to get this working again, just feels like the driver is simply not loaded

    Default Re: RTL8723DE issues and Kernel 5.5

    solved it for now by building the drivers from git and using the ant_sel=2 option, without it the driver would be loaded but not connect.
    still thank you Larry if you reading this

    Still would love to know of wifi dongle that I don't have to worry about.
