Thanks to @ozz for finding an updated driver. Alas it was plagued with compilation issues. I've patched the updated driver for Linux Kernel v5.12.


AUR Package:

The latest driver may be quite ahead of this code, I'm not sure. Even the repository I normally use is a little behind. It's at v5.8.7.1 but the latest version is v5.8.7.4 (see below).

Latest driver I could find is here but there may be more drivers somewhere else. Too many manufacturers to keep track.

Not working after kernel upgrade to 5.11+ What should we do now? Wait for an upgrade in this package?

My system hangs up as well when enabling WiFi while this module is loaded. I'm using networkctl on the Linux kernel 5.11.16.

I think I'm having similar issues as the previous people. It seems that the system hangs upon trying to use the wifi when this driver is loaded.

I'm on kernel version 5.11.16 on Arch. I've reproduced the same issue with both Connman and NetworkManager. What ends up happening is that when I start NetworkManager or when I run connmanctl enable wifi while the 882xbu module is loaded then all non-terminal applications hang forever. I can't kill anything and I'm unable to turn the computer off without a hard shutdown.

If I make sure that the module is unloaded while running for example connmanctl enable wifi I am told that wifi is not avaliable and the system does not hang.

I'm curious if there is anyway I can help make this functional quite quick. I'm willing to spend a weekend to get this working but I'm afraid I have no idea where to start so if someone has any idea of where to start on this I'd be greatly appreciative.

@jazztickets I have troubles here too. When I upgrade the Archlinux(mine is 3 month old without upgrade) to linux 5.11.15. When i plug my Archer T4U(v3), NetworkManager stop to work, doesn't let me kill the service and has stack trace in journaling. I'll try to downgrade to linux 5.10.6 too.

@jazztickets I have the same issue. I could get into the systemd debug_shell and get the following in the journal:

INFO: task dhcpcd:310 blocked for more than 122 seconds Tainted: G OE 5.11.1-arch1-1 #1

Loading the module using modprobe works, so it seems the issue is later.

dhcpcd itself doesn't log anything (even without -q), though I am seeing some of its processes hanging in uninterruptible sleep state (waiting for I/O?)

After upgrading to linux 5.11.1, the system hangs on boot. Tested on two different systems. Had to downgrade to 5.10.6. Anyone else?

Package updated, please contact me in case of problems.

@savagezen can you create a pull request in the acutal repo

If you can do that I will try to integrate modification in the package.

Very kind regards.
