rtl8811ac WiFi USB stick

I got Wi-Fi USB stick (from Aliexpress) with Realtek 8811 chip.

In Linux (Ubuntu 16.04) I turn USB mode from the CD-ROM with Windows setup program to Wi-Fi network card mode using usb_modeswitch.

And, of course I need to install driver itself.

1. Install driver rtl8821/8811:

  • git clone https://github.com/brektrou/rtl8821CU.git
  • cd rtl8821CU
  • make
  • sudo make install

2. Install sub_modewitch with patch:

  • git clone https://gitlab.com/mikhailnov/usb_modeswitch.git
  • cd usb_modeswitch
  • cd usb-modeswitch-data
  • sudo make install
  • cd ..
  • cd usb-modeswitch
  • make
  • sudo ./usb_modeswitch -W -v 0bda -p 1a2b

3. Restart desktop:

  • sudo shutdown -r now

After the system kernel is updated, you need to reinstall the rtl8821CU driver.

  • cd rtl8821CU
  • make clean; make
  • sudo make install
