• Installing a wifi-usb driver on antergos

    so my old usb wifi driver broke, so i had to install another one.

    the last one was plug and play for my antergos build. but now, i have to install the driver manually. i have the compressed driver files on my desktop.

    for as i understand, i have to follow the instructions on a pdf. sadly it seems i can’t upload the pdf here for some reason. but i can link you the site where i downloaded the driver: http://www.szedup.com/support/driver-download/ep-db1607-driver/

    EDIT: the name of the driver in windows is RealteK RTL8811AU

  • https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rtl8821au-dkms-git/

    rtl8821AU, rtl8812AU and rtl8811AU chipset driver with firmware v5.1.5


    will be the right driver , working also on updates of kernel as it uses dkms.

  • @joekamprad
    awesome! the big problem is that i don’t have internet in linux. i could download the files on a flash drive in windows and then install it in linux. But i don’t know how.

  • @juasjuasie a bit difficult because you need to build a package… if you want i can build this and offer a link to download the ready package, so that you can copy from stick and install with
    sudo pacman -U packagename.tar.gz


  • If you have an Android smartphone, you could use USB-tethering (also possible when connected to your wifi). Your system will recognize this as a wired internet connection. This way, you might be able to download your driver without the hassle of installing it offline.

  • @joekamprad i will try to use the usb-thetering that @niels1995 suggested. if it doesn’t work, i will try to contact you for the link (also thank you :) ).

  • http://kamprad.net/Downloads/rtl8821au-dkms-git-dkms.zip

    Needs to be unziped as you will need dkms also, and i am not sure you will may need some more dependencies for dkms installed first… so better try tethering the lessest to install dkms nd then you can use the rtl package if you have troubles building it…

  • Thank you! i will try what you guys suggested me when i go home.
