For my wireless card, the Alfa AC1900, I had to compile the module to get it to work on Linux since it wasn’t already part of the kernel.
To do this you will need:
- sudo permission to
insmodthe compiled module
This1 is the only one I found that worked for me on the latest stable linux kernel, which as of today on Fedora is 5.17.6.
First you need to install the kernel development header package.
# Fedora sudo dnf install kernel-debug-devel # Ubuntu sudo apt install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Next you need to make the module.
git clone https://github.com/morrownr/8814au.git cd 8814au
make the module using the
make command and use
insmod to load
make -j16 sudo sh -c "modprobe cfg80211; insmod /home/codebam/8814au/8814au.ko"
If everything worked successfully, you should now have a loaded 8814au module that you can use along with your wireless card to connect to WiFi.
