Hello,

as for the titel.
I need help to install the correct driver for my realtek wifi 8822ce device and bring it to work.

The command "ip addr" do not show me my realtek device, therefore i can´t even use it.

I got internet on my Kali Linux VirtualBox machine.

I do need to mention that I´m relativly new to (kali) linux, therefore any help would be awesome.

Best regards

Thank you for your link.

I allready saw this guideline but need a little bit assistance to understand it right, because I´m relativly new to (kali)linux.

could you explain me:
"
Copy the files from this repo to your system, change the kernel path as needed! Load the modules with modprobe rtw88 and the WiFi should work.


It is unclear to me whether the /usr files are needed or if everything will work with just the files under /lib. Feel free to open an issue about this.

"

Best regards

I'd follow the links from that link. Like, this one:


It's not in English, but it's pretty easy to figure out.

There are several files to download.

Could you explain me which one I should download and why there are 2 different methods to fix this problem?

There are different methods. The second one is the easiest to follow. (The one that is the deb package - two lines, wget and then dpkg with sudo.) Try those.

All of them are followed with the command at the bottom - sudo modprobe rtl88x2ce.

Could you please link me directly what you mean?

Method #2

Although method #3 is better because your driver will still be working after a kernel update.
I´m sorry that I´m asking so dump questions. I only got into linux (kali).

"
wget https://github.com/juanro49/rtl88x2...35403_20210101/rtl88x2ce-dkms_35403_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i rtl88x2ce-dkms_35403_amd64.deb
sudo modprobe rtl88x2ce "
"
wget https://github.com/juanro49/rtl88x2...35403_20210101/rtl88x2ce-dkms_35403_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i rtl88x2ce-dkms_35403_amd64.deb
sudo modprobe rtl88x2ce "

Are these the commands to write in the terminal?

Beacuse I did it and he throws me out "HHTP reqeust not found 404" and "ERROR 404: Not Found"

I´m using Kali linux and not Debian.

You can also just go to this page with your browser, then download it there and then install it using: sudo dpkg -i

Why did you actually start with Kali if you are a new to GNU/Linux?

Kali is based on Debian so you can use that package. Why are you actually using Kali if you are new to GNU/Linux?

dpkg: error: cannot access archive 'rtl88x2ce-dkms_35403_amd64.deb': No such file or directory

Got the .deb package directly on my destkop.

I use kali because I want to use it.

Kali is not intended for normal desktop usage, you are better of using a distribution such as Ubuntu or Mint for desktop usage.
