@Ulrich Thanks a lot for the detailed explanation. I was already trying the parameters options you had suggested before. Although I hadnt installed the lts kernel, I did not have any kernel updates so far.
The driver from that repo with the arguments worked for me, without the args was not connecting. But the problem of huge latency problems time to time still occurs.
I am getting back to my windows and Mac OS. I was trying Antergos, and I liked it, as a replacement for my MAC OS, I have a old macbook pro (2011) and I don’t think I will buy a new one. Apple have disappointed me and lot of people whit the way it is being evolving MPBs.
Thanks a lot!
No I did not tried this. I am a bit confused. What do you mean by ¨ended up using LTS Kernel?" I am just using the kernel that I got when installing Antergos. I’ve posted the kernel version because I believe that we are probably using different Kernels, since it worked for you.
So, to summarize, you are using rtlwifi_new loaded with that parameters, right? But in what kernel?
Hello everyone! I am new here, and new to Antergos / Arch. But I had some experience with Linux n the past (long time ago).
Well, I also have a ASUS laptop with Realtek rtl8821ae wireless card. I also have the issue when the network simply stop working but the indicator on gnome says it is connected.
I’ve tried the suggested fix, building and installing the module from https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new but, after that I could connect to wifi through gnome interface, but I wasn’t able to ping anything. It simply did not work at all.
I just want to state that if anyone is having this problem, you can use:
$ sudo make uninstall
in the folder you have issued the install command. It will restore the driver you were using before.
For information, the kernel I am using is 4.11.7-1-ARCH.
