If you encountered any problems, set debug log use echo 5 > /proc/net/rtl88x2bu/log_level or modprobe 88x2bu rtw_drv_log_level=5, and post your dmesg and network managers logs to .

This driver works great, thank you! Out of curiosity, is there any way to use the built-in Linux Kernel driver and be able to run in USB 3.0 mode? Using this driver here, one can use rtw_switch_usb_mode=1 to force USB3.0 speeds, for example.

I am using the latest 6.4.7-arch1-1 which supports this adapter, but lsusb -t on a USB3 port shows it running at 480MB (USB 2) using the built-in kernel driver (rtw_8822bu).

Compilation fails with the error described on .

So I see DKMS rebuild this when a new kernel update is available. However the driver does not work (no wifi detected) until I rebuild the package manually and load the module.

What am I missing here?

@julio.b ok, removed.

In fact, you should not include any linux-header dependency in DKMS packages. See archwiki DKMS guidelines

@Psilioxus you can use any linux headers that matched the kernel. I don't know why I want to list all of them.

Psilioxus commented on 2023-04-29 07:05 (UTC)

It seems linux-lts-headers is not included as a valid dep, even though package works fine with those. Is there a reason for that?

@astralc Hi, I moved it to /usr/lib/modprobe.d/. However I did not find any guideline for this, and /usr/lib/modprobe.d/ is a non-standard path.

I saw the blacklist file is added to /etc/modprobe.d/ (because I already had it when the kernel rtw module was broken).

Shouldn't this file be added to /usr/lib/modprobe.d/ instead (as it packaged, not user file), like how nvidia package blacklist nouveau?
