@MeissnerEffect: Thanks, and good idea. I will try that for now.

@braderhart I'm not sure what's causing that, maybe have a look at the output of dmesg and dkms status before you modprobe for possibly useful information.

The vendor package won't compile on newer kernels so it is patched.

@MeissnerEffect It is mostly working, but I've had to reload the module via modprobe a few times. It could be something on my end, but I am looking forward to seeing this updated. Are you just compiling the vendor package, or is there other changes/patches? I can see if I can get it to work as well, but I don't know how much time I'll actually be spending on it.

I've emailed Realtek directly and I got no response. There are newer versions of the driver for other chipsets and I've tried to get them to work but no dice. Let me know if you have any luck.

It looks like the original code was written by Realtek themselves. I wonder where that source is and I wonder if they have something even newer. I'm trying to get AP mode working.

Wow, thank you very kindly for your hard work. I was not expecting such a fast response and the adapter is now working as expected. I am so excited to use this. It is a great deal for such a small adapter, and is a very portable solution.

@braderhart I pushed an update to github yesterday which should have fixed issues on 4.15, and is working on my device.

I suspect the beamforming capability is not currently working which may adversely affect the ability to connect. Working on it.

I'm having issues with this using kernel 4.15. Have you tested and are you seeing any challenges as well?

thanks to MeissnerEffect who made the patch for kernel 4.14. He will maintain this repository from now.
