>sudo su
>mkdir -p ~/build
>cd ~/build
>git clone https://github.com/brektrou/rtl8821CU.git
>sudo apt-get install dkms
>cd ~/build/rtl8821CU
>sudo make install
# verified it had installed the driver this time
>ls /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/realtek/rtl8821cu
elementary OS 6.1 Jólnir

Restarted my machine. Wifi Networks showed up and everything works now.

oh and i had to

>sudo apt-get install linux-headers-${uname -r}

I have tried to replace the drivers following other posts suggestions and when that didn't work and since I'm only setting it up I just wiped everything and tried a fresh install again. The problem still persisted however. I have tried following this tutorial and everything installs fine without issue this time but when I reach iwcongif I get this: enter image description here

Some other info that might be useful(I hope) to anyone that can help enter image description here
