Third Party Wifi Driver Issues

I recently purchased a Archer T4U AC1300 (USB Wfi Adapator)
I am running the latest Edition of Manjaro with the Mate Desktop 1.24.1

I installed the base-devel pkg
I installed the correct kernel headers
I installed the rtl8812au-driver
$ yay -Sy rtl8812au-dkms-git

I use lsusb and it shows the the usb device
$ Bus 002 Device 003: ID 2357:0115 TP-Link Archer T4U ver.3
I use inxi -Fzx and it only shows the ethernet card
$ Network:
$ Device-1: Intel Ethernet I217-LM vendor: Hewlett-Packard EliteDesk 800 G1
$ driver: e1000e v: 3.2.6-k port: f080 bus ID: 00:19.0
$ IF: eno1 state: up speed: 10 Mbps duplex: full mac:

How do I verify that the rtl8812au-driver was correctly installed and added to the kernel ?

Thanks Bunches!

With lsmod:

lsmod | grep rtl8812au

To see information:

modinfo rtl8812au

Or do a reboot. That can also start the selfbuilt modules.
