Device Not Ready - Wi-Fi Network

Hello, These couple of weeks I tried to install drivers for my Wi-Fi. I finally did it and also build it too. Even after that it tells me that ‘device not ready’. What am I supposed to do? My Brother is a Arch- User even he tried to fix this for me but even he failed. Installed it by AUR (en) - Packages

Wi-Fi Drivers: ‘Realtek RTL8188FTV Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter’

If needed:

You shouldn’t need any custom package for using rtl8188 - perhaps I am mistaken but I think it is a kernel module.

I you are sure you need a custom driver - I suggest using the dkms version.

If you don’t have other options for network connection - like cabled ethernet - you can tether an Android using USB.

When I used windows it automatically installed the drivers but in linux it didn’t do it automatically so I installed it manually. It didn’t do anything either

Which one?

Also show formatted output of: lsusb while dongle is plugged in.

i installed dkms still nothing and tried a installation method in github still nothing. now i am using a ethernet cable for temporary i borrowed it from a friend

Stop posting pictures. Post formatted text.
And you still haven’t answered which one you installed.

  1. Please read this:

    and press the three dots below your post and press the :pencil2: to give us more information so we can see what’s really going on.
    Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies… :grin:
  2. An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width would be the minimum required information for us to be able to help you. (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)
    Also, please copy-paste that output in-between 3 backticks ``` at the beginning and end of the code/text.

How should I proceed?

Your link shows two AUR packages. Which one did you install?

8188fu-dkms-git

Please always read AUR comments first.
Go check pinned comment on that package AUR page.

oh!! then what should i do?? it says it failed for them.

No, it doesn’t. Read my comment and read AUR one as many times as necessary.

how to install this if this is for ubuntu
