jim_hitekUbuntu 22.10 + updates since Dec. '22 shows 'Using 88XXau driver in DKMS format from rtl8812au-dkms (open source)'; but there are NO wifi stations displayed in the GUI dropdown using Mate or Gnome. Ralink adapter shows several stations.22:31
jim_hitekFrom Software & Updates 'Additional Drivers' tab is shows the above, and I do see the RTL device in TERM when using lsusb: 'Bus 001 Device 015: ID 0bda:a811 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8811AU 802.11a/b/g/" 22:33

jim_hitekI have all the drivers on board. Several directories. Installed with help from and expert on AskUbuntu. They are all there, but how to activate them and get them running?22:37
Jeremy31Check in terminal>  mokutil --sb22:37
jim_hitekSorry, new to this system. I have the drivers.22:37
jim_hitekReturns "EFI variables are not supported on this system22:38
Jeremy31Now check>  modprobe -c | grep -i a81122:38
jim_hitekReturns: Null22:39
Jeremy31So no driver was installed that supports the device22:39
jim_hitekNote this Realtek device has worked for years, after the 21.10 to 22.04 upgrade, once again it stopped working.22:40
jim_hitekMaybe not, but how do I reinstall it? I was told the last time it was fixed that it would be automatic...22:41
jim_hitekI'm at Ubuntu V22.10 +updates now.22:41
Jeremy31You installed for 21.10 originally?22:43
jim_hitekI installed the Realtek setup back in V16.04 or maybe 18.04 and practically every update or upgrade of Ubuntu, it doesn't work afterwards.22:44
jim_hitekI've worked for hours with a guy at askubuntu and the last time he told me it'll be persistant through an update or upgrade. But it doesn't.22:45
jim_hitekDoesn't keep working. It did a couple times during the 21.04-21.10 era, but broke again when upgrading to 22.04.22:46
Jeremy31jim_hitek: chili555 or pilot6?22:46
jim_hitekDunno what that means.22:47
jim_hitekOH, yeah it was hey something...lemme go look...22:47
Jeremy31In terminal  do>  git clone https://github.com/morrownr/8821au-20210708.git22:50
jim_hitekokay, cloning. 22:51
jim_hitekI've got three directories that I've installed for the Realtek, is this one of those or a new one?22:52
jim_hitekAnyway, Done.22:52
Jeremy31Then> cd 8821au-20210708 && sudo ./install-driver.sh22:52
jim_hitekNow what.22:52
Jeremy31This should be a new one as it is easier than removing and updating the other22:52
jim_hitekI see. Okay, working...22:53
jim_hitek"Do you want to edit the driver options file now? y/N"22:53
jim_hitekOkay, bye for now...22:54
jim_hitekThat worked, thanks, now I'd like to copy this so I can type it out and save if for the next time Ubuntu updates/upgrades. How do I do that?23:43
jim_hitekNevermind, figured it out.23:45
jim_hitekCan I bring up another 'Worked in 22.04 but doesn't work in 22.10 issue' here, or start a new thread?23:49
jim_hitekRegarding commercial software/hardware that I pay a yearly fee for...StrongVPN. They have an engineer working on it but it's been nearly a week.23:51
Jeremy31Try on #ubuntu first23:51
jim_hitekOkay, thanks.23:51
