RTL8822BE Wi-Fi not showing

I have Asus X411UF laptop and I have problem with Wi-Fi… I’m trying to use Manjaro KDE 20.3 downloaded from Manjaro Website. But when I booted it. My Wi-Fi doesn’t show up. I mean it got Wi-Fi logo at the bottom but when I click it, its blank and doesn’t show any networks… Any solution please? I wanna get rid of Windows completely and as long as my Wi-Fi doesn’t work fully in Manjaro. I can’t switch… By the way I noticed that when I restart from Windows to USB of Manjaro KDE 20.3… My Wi-Fi shows up. But after restart. Nothing… It seems like I need to go to Windows first then to Manjaro again to have my Wi-Fi working.

Hello LightCalvary,
please do inxi -n in Manjaro and write the output here.
This is to see whether a network card is recognized.
Best Regards, Julius

I found this …

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rtw88-dkms-git/

There are two ways to build:
1.

sudo pacman -S dkms
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rtw88-dkms-git/
cd rtw88-dkms-git
makepkg -si

Or

sudo pacman -S dkms
pamac build rtw88-dkms-git

First, make sure system is updated:

sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syyu

Reboot.

For dkms you need the kernel headers. So the following command (credit to @dalto) can be used to install the headers upfront:

sudo pacman -S $(pacman -Qsq "^linux" | grep "^linux[0-9]*[-rt]*$" | awk '{print $1"-headers"}' ORS=' ')

should be replaced by

sudo pacman -S dkms git base-devel --needed

Reference:

Then you can install the driver

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/rtw88-dkms-git.git
cd rtw88-dkms-git
makepkg -si
