• Latest system upgrade renders wifi module unusable


    So I ran pacman -Syyu yesterday under the assumption that I would be able to build and install the wireless driver from this github repo. So I did what I always did, cloned the repo, ran make install, modprobe -r rtl8723de and finally entered the command

    modprobe rtl8723de
    

    which is the driver my wifi interface needs.

    But it was not meant to be for I had received this message upon running the command:

    modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'rtl8723de': Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    

    I tried everything I dared to do, reinstalling the kernel (after -Scc), running make install again, nothing worked. I just don’t know what the problem could be. Here’s the dmesg log:

    I’m a bit too nervous to try something more radical (like menuconfig and rebuilding the kernel). I don’t know what I can do. I might not be able to respond in short order as I can’t stay next to the router for very long.

    If you are looking for the driver for rtl8822be or rtl8723de, then execute the following command:

    git checkout origin/extended -b extended

    No dice I’m afraid, that was the git command I used so the problem lies somewhere else. I might be able to get more information later today, but I’m at quite a loss right now.

  • I’m not quite sure how I got it to working. But I had to do

    dkms -remove
    

    for the wifi drivers that were still in the kernel for some odd reason. After that, make install the Larry Fingers repo as before and then

    sudo modprobe -r rtl8723
    sudo modprobe rtl8723
    

    And rebooting twice (??) I now have wifi.

  • I read something about it needs a “cold power off” to get completed… caused by very crappy Realtek hardware and software development ;)

    Often this kind of devices have a BUG hardware sided, and for Windows they manage to solve it with a firmware/ driver hack may only working under windows, but may loaded into the firmware of the device, or changing some settings inside the device… a cold power off unload all that crap.
