Asus USB Wifi
For Arch-based distributions (Arch, Manjaro, EnOS, Garuda)
The wifi chip in ASUS USB N10 Nano (B1) is Realtek 8188EUS1 and it works on Linux 5.9, but not Linux 5.10 or later.
Manjaro Wifi driver install
Both kernel header files and
dkms are required to install DKMS drivers2:
Install the driver from AUR
If your WiFi is still not working properly, continue with the following steps3:
- Stop Network Manager
sudo systemctl stop NetworkManager
- Load your module into the kernel
MODULE=$(hwinfo --wlan | grep "Driver Activation Cmd" | cut -d " " -f9 | tr -d '"') && sudo modprobe $MODULE
- Raise your Device (WiFi adapter)
DEVICE=$(hwinfo --wlan | grep "Device File" | cut -d " " -f5) && sudo ip link set $DEVICE up
- Ensure all network adapters are unblocked:
sudo rfkill unblock all
- Then restart network manager:
sudo systemctl start NetworkManager
You may try serveral things to increase your success rate:
- Fully shutdonw your computer, including unplug it for a while.
- Plug the WiFi dongle back into a different USB port.
- Boot into BIOS and disable any wired NIC, or reses to default settings.
- Use another working kernel. (I ended up this this solution)
