Thread: Wi-Fi adapter doesn't work with drivers installed.

  1. #1

    Exclamation Wi-Fi adapter doesn't work with drivers installed.

    Today I installed opensuse leap 15.2 and my wi-fi adapter doesn't work.
    My wi-fi adapter is a Trendnet TEW 809 UB/A and the chipset is rtl8812au.

    I tried installing the drivers from morrownr and gnab but none of them worked.
    The wi-fi adapter has a cable in between the USB port and the actual adapter and it cannot be plugged in directly.

    I just did a google and found this : rtl8812au Kernel driver for Realtek 802.11ac 8812au wifi cards

    Its an rtl8814au Chip, so please post your kernel Version to get the right Repo:

    uname -a

    Default AW: Wi-Fi adapter doesn't work with drivers installed.

    Add this Repo as root with:
    Code:
    zypper ar -f https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Sauerland:/hardware/openSUSE_Leap_15.2_Update Sauerland-update
    Install the driver:
    Code:
    zypper in -f rtl8814au-kmp-default
    Reboot and config your network, I would use for Wifi NetworkManager.

    If a new kernel is released, you will get the driver automatically a little bit later.
