The problem is: PCIe Board with RTL8812AE don't work properly, maybe missing some firmware rtl8812aefw.bin and rtl8812aefw_wowlan.bin ... How to copy both files to /lib/firmware/rtlwifi ??


1 Answer 1


Type in terminal:

sudo update-initramfs -u

Provide the result of this command and I can help.

The dafault way is to:

sudo mkdir /home/username/Downloads/rtl
cd /home/username/Downloads/rtl/
wget http://anduin.linuxfromscratch.org/sources/linux-firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8812aefw.bin
wget http://anduin.linuxfromscratch.org/sources/linux-firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8812aefw_wowlan.bin
sudo cp rtl8812aefw.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi
sudo cp rtl8812aefw_wowlan.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi
  • Thanks a lot Sysadmin
