TP-Link TL-WN8200ND(UN) ver 2.20, USB is not recognized and set up on Manjaro 21 KDE iso

I’m sure there are drivers for this device as it uses common Realtek WiFi chip,
so recognizing this USB device and loading proper drivers should be nice on
new Manjaro ISO :slight_smile:

Someone from the team should make a PGKBUILD for this driver and the patch

But would be best if that team member has the device and can test it … On the other hand, it could be based on this but then you need base-devel, kernel headers and dkms by default in the ISO and also add the patch … not very convenient.

So, install the system and proceed to have it working.

Off course, it’s not a huge problem to make it work after installation, it just has no big reason not to work out of box for user experience and convenience, user friendliness and such :smiley:

If you have two of them, sending one to the devs would definitely help, as would donating the money it costs to the project
