New driver kmod-rtl88x2bu-cl support more USB from Realtek

I created a new package to support more of those rubbish wifi USB sticks with Realtek chipsets.

configuring via luci isnt working like other realtek, but commandline works

the following sticks / USB-IDs should work - HW chipset is 8822B

no-name / realtek branding

branded / customer stick branding

Pull Request kmod-rtl88x2bu-cl

feel free to test , give feedback , send patches ...

maybe availability of vendor drivers will make writing and fixing in-kernel drivers easier

PSA: mt76 based USB sticks have in-kernel drivers and work better


Many thanks!
However, it does not allow for using 802.11s modes like mesh point; is this a chipset limitation, some parameters to fine-tune in your code, or just not implemented in the driver?

I have both a Linksys WRT1900AC and a WRT3200acm and would like to try your new driver. It seems from another conversation I was having that I need a kmod and a firmware driver for my 0BDA:0xB812 "Rubish USB stick"! :slight_smile:

Can I ask if you can direct me to where I can download them built from or how I can install them?

Thanks in advance!
