Install Wifi Driver Linux

How install Alfa-AWUS036H wireless driver in kali linux - rt3070 chipset If this is your first visit, be sure to check out the FAQ by clicking the link above. You may have to register before you can post: click the register link above to proceed. But still there are some nasty WiFi modules and Graphics Cards that won’t work in GNU/Linux out-of-the-box. Today we are going to work on such a WiFi module. Let’s take a look at how to install WiFi driver for RTL8723DE aka RealTek d723. I am new using Kali Linux, even I am not a good linux user. I have a laptop and I installed kali linux, This laptop has a problem with the wifi adapter, so I bought a new one. I bought a nexxt Lynx300. It comes with a linux driver, but I do not know how to install it. I hope you can help me and tell me how I can install that driver.

  1. Install Usb Wifi Driver Linux
  2. Cached
  3. Install Wifi Driver Linux Lite
  4. Install Wifi Driver Kali Linux

Target Devices

Adapters with chipset: RTL8811AU, RTL8812AU (RTL8814AU have a separate driver now.)


Driver Information

Developed internally by Realtek, and then patched by open community members.

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

Check Secure Boot Status

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

Kali Linux

For those who are running Kali Linux ARM Image on Raspberry Pi, the driver should be installed already.

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

Install realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms
sudo apt install./realtek-rtl88xxau-dkms_5.6.4.2~git20200916-0kali1_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.


Install Build Dependencies

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

Install aircrack-ng/rtl8812au
git clone


Getting package URI

In case that repository URL changes in the future, spin up a Kali VM or even a Docker container, and run
