8814au chipset support is turned off in this driver. Please use this package instead. Also, if you plan to use both packages at the same time, make sure that you have an up-to-date package.

This package now forces to use the branch v5.6.4.2 (the one that works better for me), which is the default one in the remote repository although they still mention branch v5.3.4 as the stable one. If you have any issues, please leave a comment, and also tried to change the branch in the source array. For example, change it to:

Important: Use ip and iw instead of ifconfig and iwconfig

Just asking: Does anybody know how status is on this driver vs. FragAttacks? (Seems Realtek source is from 2019...)

It unfortunately doesn't work for me. The device is "DOWN" and cannot be brought up:

$ sudo ip link set wlp0s20f0u3 up

is rtl8812au fixed? Haven't switched to Linux yet as I have been waiting for this to be fixed.

@konecny-ondrej thanks for sharing the PR. I have added it as a patch to current PKGBUILD until the PR gets accepted.

konecny-ondrej commented on 2021-05-12 17:06

Hopefully the Pull Request with the fix gets approved soon. In the meantime I have used the Pull Request's source branch as a source for this package and it works just fine.

It seems there is an issue with authentication when using the latest kernel 5.12.1 [1].

However, I do not have any issues with monitor mode and injection, which is the main use case of this driver.

Please, report your issues upstream. Here only issues regarding the PKGBUILD.

I tried installing this driver on my arch system running 5.12 kernel. I was previously using the same driver when I was on 5.11 and it used to work flawlessly. Unfortunately, it broke when I upgraded to 5.12. I tried installing the driver at this page: but it kept occasionally disconnecting. I would like to point out that it did not completely disconnect but just stopped internet access. I tried reinstalling the driver at this page and it installed fine, but I am not able to connect to my home network, however, I am able to see the list of all networks. Any help would be really appreciated!

@darkside: sorry, I forgot to answer your latest comment. I have no idea about the other driver, probably it does not allow for injection, which is the main feature/advantage of this one.
