WiFi Adapter Issue


My Wifi Adapter doesn’t seem to work and I have no clue why…

“lsusb” Returns =>

Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0bda:f179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188FTV 802.11b/g/n 1T1R 2.4G WLAN Adapter

“inxi -N” Returns =>

  Device-1: Intel 82579LM Gigabit Network driver: e1000e
  Device-2: Realtek RTL8188FTV 802.11b/g/n 1T1R 2.4G WLAN Adapter  type: USB
    driver: r8188eu

PS. I’ve been trying to solve this issue for 2 days and haven’t figured out anything yet… (I’m new to Linux)

Hi @DidntPot,

I have no idea if this’ll work, but there is a driver for that adapter in the AUR:

$ pamac search RTL8188

rtl8188gu-dkms-git                                                                                                                                                                                                                       r14.23b04ff-1  AUR
Driver for Realtek RTL8188GU chipset wireless cards

It might even be a newer one. Install it with:

pamac build rtl8188gu-dkms-git

Reboot, and see if that helps.
