Issues with RTL8812bu wifi chipset not working on the latest kernel, 5.11.12.200. Where to start trouble shooting?

Hello everyone. I am currently experiencing an issue with my USB wifi receiver.

The receiver uses the RTL8812bu chipset, and I have been using this(DKMS install) driver since 5.10 kernel. On the latest kernel, the systems seem completely oblivious to the wifi receiver at all.

Entering Grub, I can go back to kernel 5.11.10.200, which seems to work fine, while 5.11.11.200 has the same issues.

Booting into a different kernel is hardly a solution. I am not very well acquainted with Linux systems in general, mostly because they have not failed on me. I am quite oblivious as to where I should start looking for a solution. If anyone has an idea, please do share.
