README.md

This repository was a combination of multiple projects what i found on the Internet

This driver only supports 8812au chipset at the moment.

DKMS

This driver can be installed using [DKMS]. This is a system which will automatically recompile and install a kernel module when a new kernel gets installed or updated. To make use of DKMS, install the dkms package, which on Debian (based) systems is done like this:

sudo apt-get install dkms

Installation of Driver

In order to install the driver open a terminal in the directory with the source code and execute the following command:

sudo ./dkms-install.sh

Removal of Driver

In order to remove the driver from your system open a terminal in the directory with the source code and execute the following command:

sudo ./dkms-remove.sh

Make

For building & installing the driver with 'make' use

make
make install

Misc

For working 80Mhz channels in hostapd, you need load module with parameter:

options 88XXau rtw_vht_enable=2

For setting monitor mode

  1. Fix problematic interference in monitor mode.
airmon-ng check kill

You may also uncheck the box "Automatically connect to this network when it is avaiable" in nm-connection-editor. This only works if you have a saved wifi connection.

  1. Set interface down
sudo ip link set wlan0 down
  1. Set monitor mode
sudo iw dev wlan0 set type monitor
  1. Set interface up
sudo ip link set wlan0 up

For setting TX power

sudo iw wlan0 set txpower fixed 3000

LED control

You can now control LED behaviour statically by Makefile, for example:

CONFIG_LED_ENABLE = n

value can be y or n

statically by module parameter in /etc/modprobe.d/8812au.conf or wherever, for example:

options 88XXau rtw_led_enable=0

value can be 0 or 1

or dynamically by writing to /proc/net/rtl8812au/$(your interface name)/led_enable, for example:

$ echo "0" > /proc/net/rtl8812au/$(your interface name)/led_enable

value can be 0 or 1

check current value:

$ cat /proc/net/rtl8812au/$(your interface name)/led_enable

NetworkManager

Newer versions of NetworkManager switches to random MAC address. Some users would prefer to use a fixed address. Simply add these lines below

[device]
wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no

at the end of file /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and restart NetworkManager with the command:

sudo service NetworkManager restart
