8822BU for Linux
Driver for 802.11ac USB Adapter with
Only STA/Monitor Mode is supported, no AP.
A few known wireless cards that use this driver include
NOTE: At least v4.7 is needed to compile this module sorry people with older kernels, the code is removed. Upon request I can work towards making it backwards compatible.
Currently tested on X86_64 and ARM platform(s) only,
cross compile possible.
For compiling type
in source dir
To install the firmware files
sudo make install
To Unload driver you may need to disconnect the device
If the driver fails building consult your distro how to
install the kernel sources and build an external module.
This driver allows use of wpa_supplicant by using the nl80211 driver
If installing on Rasberry Pi or other "armv71" devices, edit the Makefile and set
CONFIG_PLATFORM_ARM_RPI = y and
CONFIG_PLATFORM_I386_PC = n
On Debian with some wireless managers (KDE confirmed) you must append the following to /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf:
Otherwise, you may get stuck in an infinte loop of failed connection and a prompt for password. Source page here: https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi
Driver works fine (some sort of)
Most of the work is done is cleaning the driver and make this mess readable for conversion. Updates for wireless-ext/cfg80211 are not accepted.
