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

Apologies for stating the obvious, but had this case before as a maintainer. Can everyone having issues with 5.3.1 make sure they have updated the sources the package uses? DKMS does not that, it only recompiles using the installed sources, it does not re-download the Github sources. To do so you can simply force a reinstalling of this package, which will indeed download teh Git sources again. Of course if your adapter does not work, you may do so by reinstalling an older kernel or try an alternate adapter.

My adapter Asus USB-AC56 (rtl8812au) seems to work fine here & now with kernel linux 5.3.5.arch1-1. What is curious is that I had to set Management Frame Protection (802.11w) from "supported" to "disabled" on the AP before I could associate adapter with AP. (And it was set to "supported", not "mandatory".) Anybody understands this? (The AP is Asus RT-AC68U with asuswrt-merlin 384.13 firmware.)

Used this without problems until to the upgrade to kernel 5.3, after that it didn't got an interface, upgraded to newest version now I do see the interface but still get no scan results. All other drivers don't work as well…

Driver had some recent updates and works again for me now, thanks. (TP-Link T9UH v1)

@mrpanda so probably it's an issue with recent kernels. Have a look at this open issue upstream, subscribe to it just in case someone figure it out, and wwait till they fix it (kernel or driver). I'm sorry but I can't help here, I just maintain the PKGBUILD.

mrpanda commented on 2019-10-01 17:39

@iyanmv Yes it has compatible chipset. My point was that I was using this driver till kernel 5.3.1 update so I was expected to see some error during installation that's it.

iyanmv commented on 2019-10-01 06:43

@mrpanda why should it work this driver for you or any others from AUR? Are you sure your Qoltec uses a compatible chipset? Of course, you will be able to install any of them, but that's not the point, right?

mrpanda commented on 2019-09-30 22:27

none of the drivers in AUR support my Qoltec 57010 hardware rtl8811au no installation problems , but it seems that it has no power , the indicator is dead.

@Gatenkaas The driver works for me on kernel 5.3.1, and I'm using TP-Link T9UH. However, this driver is nowhere close to the performance I'd get with the package rtl8814au-dkms-git. The signal strength is about 30% less and the upload speed is at least 80% slower. Sadly, the rtl8814au-dkms-git driver has stopped working after I upgraded to 5.3.1. Otherwise, I wouldn't be using the aircrack driver.

@Gatenkaas File any bug reports (Search before creating a new issue) in the upstream github. They can fix it there.
