Rtl8811au Mac Os Driver

>>> Download here <<<

A long time ago I bought a USB adapter which according to Windows used the RTL8811au chipset. It worked great on Windows 10 and I’ve never had any problems with it. Yesterday I installed Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS for the first time because I wanted to try something new. The problem is that I just couldn’t get the RTL8811au drivers to work. The easiest way is to use Kali Linux ARM Image, which has the driver built-in. Otherwise, you may have to follow compile instructions for Raspberry Pi and manually compile the driver from source rtl8811Au8812AU8821AUlinux. Rtl8811AU8812AU8821AU linux kernel driver for (801.11ac) Wireless Dual-Band module based on realtek rtl8811AU8812AU.

Driver Information

This drivers is not mainlined (might never will be, from the look of it), so you’ll be loading a self-compiled out-of-tree kernel module. If you are running on a system using UEFISecure Boot, you may need to either disable Secure Boot or sign the kernel module before you can load it. (We won’t cover that here.)

To check the status of Secure Boot, run

Output will be one of the following:

  • SecureBoot enabled — using UEFI, Secure Boot enabled
  • SecureBoot disabled — using UEFI, Secure Boot disabled
  • EFI variables are not supported on this system — not using UEFI, Secure Boot disabled

Driver Installation

Rtl8811au mac os driver

Kali Linux

For x86 users, install package realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms.

Parrot OS

Debian and Its Derivatives (on x86, x86_64 Platforms)

APT is able to install local deb file since version 1.1 — we can use that to install realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms from Kali.

First, find the latest realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms deb package from Kali’s repository.

At the time of writing/updating, the latest one is realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms_5.6.4.2~git20210327.c0ce817–0kali1_all.deb.

Although not tested, some distros should be able to perform the whole process in GUI — download deb package through browser and double-click to install.



Arch Linux

If you’re not using the default kernel, package linux-headers should be changed respectively. Say you’re using LTS kernel, the command would then be

Note that because the kernel module is built with DKMS you should ensure you have installed and rebooted to latest kernel update before installing.
