Re: Driver installation impossible? RTL8812AU

I used the github source suggested by sealy_au - https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au MrEngman Thank you. This source is highly customized for aircrack. Has logging and access to /proc disabled etc.. For 8812au I would suggest more generic one from https://github.com/zebulon2/rtl8812au-driver-5...

Re: Driver installation impossible? RTL8812AU

MrEngman - I have noticed that you have upgraded 8812au drivers to v5.2.20.2_28373.20180619. And finally my TP-Link -T4UHv1 seems to be stable on ac 5GHz channels. I have been fighting with ac stability for quite long trying multiple github sources. The best results I had were with v5.2.20_25672.20...

Hi Dimension02000, Looks like @Fruitoftheloom has explained the issue using BerryBoot. Using NOOBS or PINN will allow you to install multiple OS's and choose which one to run at boot. They install the basic Raspbian OS's and others you may want to install but may need an internet connection, possibl...

Re: mt760lu_mcu_wait_resp retrying

Power issues can be caused not just by a PSU that cannot supply sufficient current, but also if the cable connecting the PSU to the Pi is too thin. In this case as the current increases the voltage drop over the power cable will increase and can cause power problems. A similar issue can be caused if...

I expect /etc/modprobe.d/81922cu.conf is not going to do anything useful. /etc/modprobe.d/8192cu.conf , without the extra 2, is usually used by the 8192cu driver and you are using the mt7601 driver. A couple of things I can think of - a possible power supply issue, or the motor driver interfering wi...
