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

I don't know the guidelines but maybe we shouldn't specify the branch at all so that it propagates to the package if/when the default branch becomes v5.3.4 or some other branch.

@iyanmv Tags are looking good

iyanmv commented on 2019-02-10 22:49

@jpegxguy I changed the tags. Do you think they are ok now?

@polyzen: Oh yes, thanks! I fixed that.

This package is not actually using the v5.2.20 branch as only the URL was changed. See:

I think the rtl type entries in the tags should be modified to have au appended. people who won't search using 8812au, will search using rtl8812au. Also 8812 is missing the au (second entry)

Neither changing CONFIG_DISABLE_REGD_C nor trying the other package rtl8812au-dkms-git solved the issue. Even before the aircrack days, I used the 4.x version driver with package name rtl8821au-dkms-git. Only that one worked.

@jpegxguy @zebulon: there is a relevant line in the Makefile file that you may try to change. Try to change CONFIG_DISABLE_REGD_C=y -> CONFIG_DISABLE_REGD_C=n

@zebulon: regarding the USB2 thing, there is also the line CONFIG_USB2_EXTERNAL_POWER = n a little bit below in the same file.

@jpegxguy: Have you the same issue with the rtl8812au-dkms-git package (gordboy's repo)? I only have this problem with aircrack's, although they both have codebase. And what is your adapter? I will look at issues on Github and see if something similar has been already reported.

jpegxguy commented on 2019-01-31 20:32

@zebulon. That's exactly my issue with v5.2.20, and why I used v5.3.4. The second time, I could see my neighbors 5 Ghz network, but not mine. v5.3.4 works every time. You're thinking of reporting upstream?

zebulon commented on 2019-01-31 18:39

I have a strange issue. I have an rtl8812au adapter (Edimax AC1200 EW-7822UAC). When using the rtl8812au-dkms-git ( from gordboy) I can see both 2.4 and 5GHz networks. However, with your aircrack-ng, I only see the 2.4GHz networks. If I use the aircrack-ng 5.3.4 branch, on the other hand, I can see the 5GHz networks. I know I should report this issue upstream to aircrack, but if anyone has an idea, I would be glad to hear it.
