WIFI SMGOTT (realtek semiconductor corp 0bda:a811)




I bought this USB wifi : https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B072L9RY1L/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

But i have trouble using it with hive os.

The key isnt recognize, i used the command “lsusb” and it seems to be found : Realtek semiconductor corp 0bda:a811

I cant use ethernet connection to get the good drivers. Do you have any idea how to install the driver ? (if its the problem).

Could you help me fix this ?

Thanks so much.
By the way, hive os looks really good, i would like to start with 20 rx 580.


@openurmind: Hi, i just had success enabling Wi-Fi on that exact model ! here is the commands you need to run, then reboot, and you’ll be able to run “wifi” command and it will let you complete the wifi setup :smiley:

sudo apt purge rtl8812au-dkms
sudo apt install git
git clone https://github.com/gnab/rtl8812au.git
sudo cp -r rtl8812au  /usr/src/rtl8812au-4.2.2
sudo dkms add -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2
sudo dkms build -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2
sudo dkms install -m rtl8812au -v 4.2.2


Thanks this worked great for me. See my post
