asked 2018-02-09 14:07:38 -0500

Greeting Fedora Community, I have been using linux since 2010 on and off, i started with Ubuntu 10.1 and later moved to Debian, and after that a bit of Arch Linux. Honest from my Heart i really love Fedora and this wonderful OS has taken me by storm. I hit a wall today when i installed Fedora (EVERYTHING) on my machine, install went well and everything was OK. I noticed that My USB wireless did not function, nither the audio that is usely the on the MOBO. I use to run Audio and Visual on the HDMI cable from my graphic card when i ran Windows 10. My network is a ALFA USB WLAN AWUS036ACH, if i am correct, i have not installed the drivers for the Motherboard. Where das the Udev comes in? What have i missed durning this installation? Thank you.

Your adapter is listed as using RTL8812AU chipset. Realtek is kind of hit and miss I guess. I have a RTL8188eu that does not work in Debian, but runs on Fedora. Make sure you have the linux-firmware package installed. I'm not sure what is in it, but there is no separate firmware for your Realtek chip, and I don't think there is native support in the kernel. You can always build a kernel module for your wifi, but it is a bit messy because you will have to rebuild every time the kernel updates. There are several projects on github for this firmware. This one has been updated recently, so I guess it is active

I won't address the sound issue except to ask you to check this answer and see if your sound is disabled:
