More Realtek WiFi Issues

Good afternoon,

I recently got an ASUS L210MA and installed BunsenLabs Lithium. I read and attempted similar steps from this thread.

Doing inxi -N tells me it's a Realtek RTL8821CE. I tried firmware-realtek and it did not work. I tried this repo and it did not work. When I try inxi -N after installation and restarting, it still says N/A for driver.

Looking for some more guidance, please. Thank you.

Have you run hardware-probe?

Re: More Realtek WiFi Issues

When searching for RTL8821CE in descriptions in all debian repos, there is no catch. So, there is no drivers for debian.
The easiest alternative if you can not compile driver from other source, is to use an usb dongle, that is known to work in debian.

Welcome to BL forums!

First off, ultra-conservative Debian stable is not the best choice for a brand new piece of hardware.

If you identified the wifi device correctly, it looks like that github repo is what you need. However, you have to retrace the complete compilation and installation process with us, a simple "didn't work" isn't enough.
It should work. Did you read the whole README?

Also please provide the info requested here.

Also look at this bug report.


Please use CODE tags for code.

Re: More Realtek WiFi Issues

From the bug report looks like the driver in question is now in 5.9 kernel, which is in the Buster Backports. Perhaps add the buster-backports repo and while on a wired connection install that new kernel and try it?

The stock 4.19 kernel in the BL ISO is rather old and does not support the newest hardware.

Yes, https://linux-hardware.org/index.php?id … -103c-831a, says that the device is supported by kernel 5.9 (and three other repositorys).
