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

@samxl001: 5.12 is still on [testing] in Arch. Wait till it reaches [Core] and then I will test that everything works fine.

samxl001 commented on 2021-04-29 03:50

Doesn't work on the linux5.12 kernel. I tried on manjaro and it gives return code 10

@iyanmv thank you for fast answer. I wasn't precise enough. I'm aware that the sources are different. I have rtl8812au so both drivers should work just fine. For rtl8812au Is the aircraft the only difference? (No much info on github page)

iyanmv commented on 2021-04-22 21:04

@darkside: yes, different sources (and features) and different supported chipsets.

darkside commented on 2021-04-22 15:41

If this is possible then don't kill me for this question please, but is there any important difference between this driver and the: rtl8812au-dkms-git ?

@rjahanbakhshi Hi, thanks for the feedback, but I don't want to add archs that I cannot test myself. Everyone is welcome to modify the PKGBUILD and test it in different architectures as you did.

rjahanbakhshi commented on 2021-03-17 20:20

Could you please add aarch64 to the arch variable. I added it and built it for Alfa Network AWUS036AC on raspberry pi 4 and it works perfectly.

@elemat I don't have that issue. Are you using latest commit?

cheezsteak commented on 2021-03-04 17:30

@elemat I'm having the same problems after a recent update. My laptop can connect to the 5GHz network on channel 157 but my desktop with a rtl8812 card cannot see it. The rtl8812 card shows that it does support channel 157 at 5785 MHz but at 30.0 dBm where as my laptop has 22.0 dBm. I don't know if the dBm discrepency is relevant though.

elemat commented on 2021-03-03 23:35

I am using this module and it works well, except it may not provide the 5 GHz band. I upgraded to the 5.11.2 kernel. Is anyone experiencing the same problem?
