Hello there,

I have a problem with my mobile wireless chip RLT8822BE by Realtek. I assume it is a driver problem. The command lspci revealed the following information:

Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device b822

Is there a kernel module I have to enable? Will it be supported in the upcoming Kernel 4.14 and if not how can I contribute?

Thanks in advance

Have a look at

Compile, install and load the module with the following commands:

git clone
cd rtlwifi-next
sudo make install
sudo modprobe rtl8822be

Does it work?

Thanks a lot!

The main repo at did not compile. I used which was one commit ahead and compiled.

Now Fedora recognizes the wireless device. I can also list the networks around me. Unfortunately connecting to any wireless network fails.

Edit: Doing lsmod shows

Been searching for a solution all day. This is the one! Thank you, sir! My problem details (for reference): Dual booted Ubuntu 16.04 on Windows 10 machine. Linux kernel version 4.10. Same network controller as posted in the question.
