Hello @rkp :slight_smile:

I guess it is this driver: GitHub - kelebek333/rtl8188fu: RTL8188FU driver for Linux 4.15.x ~ 5.11.x

Pamac says this:

pamac search rtl8188fu
8188fu-kelebek333-dkms-git                                   r84.b01ebdf-1  AUR 
    Kernel driver module for Realtek RTL8188FU and
    RTL8188FTV Wireless 802.11n USB 2.0 adapters (device id
    0bda:f179)
8188fu-dkms-git                                              r8.1d12cae-3   AUR 
    Kernel driver module for Realtek RTL8188FU and
    RTL8188FTV Wireless 802.11n USB 2.0 adapters (device id
    0bda:f179)

It can be installed with:

pamac build 8188fu-kelebek333-dkms-git 

Also don’t forget to install the headers, which are needed for DKMs:

pamac install linux510-headers

for the linux kernel 5.10. If you have another kernel, just change the number.

After rebooting, the driver should be available.
