Realtek RTL8821AE issue

Post by sergio135 »

Hi.
I'm having problems with the RTL8821AE wireless card drivers when installing on a lenovo laptop. The same card works well on desktop raspberrypiOS, but it doesn't work on dietpi.
Any instructions for that?
thanks in advance

Hi,

did you tried to install realtek firmware package. https://packages.debian.org/de/buster/firmware-realtek

Probably it's installed on Raspberry OS be default.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

What do you mean by "it doesn't work", which issue do you face, in case could you paste error messages you see?
