Hardware: Asus vm42
I run volumio on a pi and its great. Thanks
I bought an Asus VM42 specifically to run volumio x86/x64. On the whole, it’s great. However the wifi doesn’t work (wired ethernet is fine, worked out the box).
On the network set up page i tried to switch on wifi but when I saved it a red notification came up - look at systemctl status wireless.service and the journel log.
Switching to a command prompt and looking at these the wifi was failing to load. lspci told me that the wifi was Realtek RTL8821AE.
Tried sudo apt-get install firmware-realtek and then sudo modprobe -rv rtl8821ae sudo modprobe -v rtl8821ae but although the firmware was installed it failed to load.
Is the Realtek RTL8821AE just not supported, or am I doing something wrong? I have a debian buster installed on a seperate disk and the wifi is fine on that.
