Wifi adapter not working upon switching kernels

so i switched kernels from 517 to 515 because i got notification that 517 was not supported, upon switching it my wifi adapter doesn’t work cause i dont have driver installed
Device-2: Realtek RTL8852AE 802.11ax PCIe Wireless Network Adapter
vendor: Lenovo driver: N/A pcie: speed: 2.5 GT/s lanes: 1 port: 2000
bus-ID: 03:00.0 chip-ID: 10ec:8852 class-ID: 0280
this is my device specs notice that driver part says N/A I have installed kernel headers successfully but when I do : pamac build rtl8852ae-dkms-git it says target not found

help?? anyone?

just a simple search: AUR (en) - Packages

pamac build rtw89-dkms-git

Just note:

This branch was created from the version merged into the wireless-drivers-next repo, which is in the 5.16 kernel. IF YOU USE DRIVERS FROM THIS REPO FOR KERNELS 5.16+, TOU MUST BLACKLIST THE KERNEL VERSIONS!!! FAILING TO DO THIS WILL RESULT IN ALL MANNER OF STRANGE ERRORS.
rtw89/README.md at main · lwfinger/rtw89 · GitHub

So Kernel 5.16 and above don’t need this driver since it is integrated.
