Okay, looks like my HP printer has a "direct print wifi" option which I disabled. Hopefully that clears that out of the logs. I also waited longer, i.e. let it fail and logged until it started the whole cycle again.

New Logs:

@lendarker seems you are using Wi-Fi Direct? The log did not shows what happened after try to connect with password.

Had a bit of time to examine this issue again.

Here's the syslog excerpt:

The adapter is recognized by the system, the driver loads, but it never authenticates and in the KDE network manager applet eventually fails with "failed to configure interface" (approximately, I have my system set to German).

@lendarker 0bda:b812 is the default ID. Do you have any error log?

lendarker commented on 2020-04-12 12:56

Okay, that got the dkms module working again. However, the current version appears to not work with my adapter anymore. It finds the wifi, but setting up the interface fails after a long time. I've had this with other/earlier driver versions before, then it worked flawlessly for months, now it seems to be back.

My vendor/device id lists as 0x0bda:0xb812.

Any idea what I can do to get it working again?

@lendarker reinstall this package should get you the new code form git.
