PAU09 not working in latest fedora 30

I’m using a PAU09 wifi usb adapter and when plugging it in it seems to connect to 2.4ghz connects fine, the 5ghz ones cause the wifi icon to disappear and leave a big blank space. Gnome will also prompt that it failed to activate the network even though the password and everything is right. I was able to get the adapter working on an older version of Ubuntu linux 16.04 but it seems that I’m having trouble on these modern distros.

any help would be appreciated. I’m getting tired of using this slow 2.4ghz wifi adapter currently (pau05) lol
