I am trying to get a USB WIFI device to work.
It identifies as:
Bus 001 Device 010: ID 0bda:a811 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8811AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN Adapter
I have found a *.deb driver file for ubuntu:
inxi -N finds it:
Device-2: Realtek RTL8811AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN Adapter type: USB driver: usb-network
modprobe says the modfile is loaded (and yes, I also have another WIFI-USB-Stick that works but it is slow...)
Module Size Used by ccm 20480 6 rt2800usb 32768 0 rt2x00usb 24576 1 rt2800usb rt2800lib 131072 1 rt2800usb rt2x00lib 65536 3 rt2800usb,rt2x00usb,rt2800lib rtl8821ae 233472 0 btcoexist 155648 1 rtl8821ae rtl_pci 28672 1 rtl8821ae rtlwifi 94208 3 rtl_pci,rtl8821ae,btcoexist mac80211 1024000 6 rtl_pci,rtl8821ae,rt2x00lib,rtlwifi,rt2x00usb,rt2800lib cfg80211 888832 3 rt2x00lib,rtlwifi,mac80211 libarc4 16384 1 mac80211
So I guess the device + driver are OK.
BUT: there is no WLAN-Tab in Zorin system control.
I have noticed that in /etc/network there is no interfaces file so I guess the network configuration must be done elsewhere.
What should I do to trigger my WLAN device so it is found in WLAN settings?
Thanks a lot and best regards
