@Terence: thanks for the info. That may mean that due to the excellent work from the aircrack-ng contributors and associates, we could have a unified 5.3.4 driver for rtl8812/14/21au. This would be so nice! I will check with my own 8812au device (but this may take a bit of time due to personal reasons). One other way would be to have a new PKGBUILD, e.g. rtl8812_14_21au-dkms-git but I am not fan of such naming scheme.

@zebulon I'm using the 5.3.4 branch of the aircrack-ng repo with no problem since a week.

Today I received an out-of-date notification due to an issue with kernel 4.19, but now the flag has been removed. Was it an error? Anyway, I think this package should now be refreshed and possibly updated to the aircrack-ng rtl8812au repo, which contains the most up-to-date patches. That said, I wonder if I should stay on branch 5.1.5 or use the later one (5.2.xx or 5.3.4). Has anyone tried aircrack-ng repo by any chance? (I have no rtl8814au hardware to test this...)

If anyone has issues regarding the MAC constantly changing: Given that the mod is called 8812au, put "options 8812au rtw_initmac=YOUR_MAC_ADDR" into /etc/modprobe.d/8812au.conf

Replace YOUR_MAC_ADDR with your desired MAC address.

@jaylittle: thanks for reporting. I do not know where the problem came from since this number is automatically generated with makepkg. Anyway, this is fixed now. Users may need to force upgrade due to a lower pkgver number.

jaylittle commented on 2018-03-15 22:59

The pkgver variable in the PKGBUILD file is inaccurate which results in this package always being recompiled during a system wide upgrade using pacaur.

The correct value according to the upstream git repo should be:

@remy.grunblatt: I use this driver on an WPA2 Network with EAP-TLS Auth without any issues ... HTH

zebulon commented on 2018-02-02 10:29

I just pushed patches for kernel 4.15 into this repository. Should now build with the kernel in Testing.

@remy.grunblatt:I am sorry I cannot help, I do not have access to such networks. There are tips to configure WPA2 Enterprise and eduroam specifically in the Wiki: but I suppose you already checked out the advice here?

Hi, can someone try to connect to a wpa2 entreprise network (such as eduroam) and tell me if it works, with this driver?

I keep getting stuff like "nl80211: Drv Event 48 (NL80211_CMD_DISCONNECT) received for wlan[…]" messages after EAP identity exchange.
