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 .

Linux 6.6.6 and 6.1.67 should fixed the deadlock issue.

RinCat commented on 2023-12-11 03:52 (UTC)

This is a known Linux kernel bug in 6.6.5 and 6.1.66 that has deadlock during the connection. Please downgrade the kernel for now.

The driver does not work on Manjaro with kernel 6.1.66 (linux 61 6.1.66). The system is almost completely blocked.

Драйвер не работает на Manjaro с kernel 6.1.66 (linux 61 6.1.66). Практически полностью блокируется работа системы.

Thank you for packaging this!

For whoever did not check the readme in the git repo; after upgrading from kernel 5.15 to 6.5.5, I had to additionally disable the built-in rtw_8822bu driver like so:

echo "blacklist rtw88_8822bu" > /etc/modprobe.d/rtw8822bu.conf

...because rtw_8822bu was not able to enter master mode (for a Wi-Fi hotspot).

This was for a TP-Link Archer T4U v3.2, device ID: 2357:0115

i've installed this drive with yay yet it is still not letting me connect to wifi

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 .

Strykar commented on 2023-07-26 01:03 (UTC)

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.
