it looks like the installation failed.
Since I used this repo they changed the code and removed some dependencies.
Maybe try the second latest commit: 6e82f69dc7c2f3b85aa0b7b6a37b76193cf1f6b4
from Jun 21, 2021.
hopefully that helps, otherwise you could open an Issue on Github.
So I got it working.
It is basically as @susi stated. Thanks again!
Here is how:
sudo dnf install g++ gcc make automake gcc-c++ kernel-devel git
(I guess that are all)
Clone Git repository
git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtw89.git
Compile and Install
sudo make install
The module should now be loaded automatically on boot, but you can test it manually with:
sudo modprobe rtw89pci
Note that this differs from the readme which, I guess, was just copy&pasted. (see bugreport)
If you get something like “Key was rejected by service”, then you have to deal with secure boot. (see below)
Disable Secure Boot or Sign Module
If you have secure boot enabled, then you have to sign the kernel module. The documentation explains how.
I just disabled secure boot in the BIOS settings. Maybe I sign the module later and readable secure boot. Or I wait until it is officially integrated and signed in Fedora and enable secure boot then again.
I use tp-link TL-MR100 in my house. We have 2 notebooks, HP 14-ck0023TU dual booting Windows 10 Home and Fedora 34 Workstation Official Edition. Its Wi-Fi adapter is RTL8821CE. The Wi-Fi signal on notebook number 1 is strong in either Windows 10 Home or Fedora 34. On the other hand, the Wi-Fi signal on notebook number 2 is strong and stable in Windows 10 Home, but in Fedora 34 it is mostly weak and unstable and also fluctuated.
From your post, do I have to uninstall something first and do I have to replace rtw89 with rtw88 before the installation ?
This problem on notebook no. 2 came after I did some Windows Updates previously.
Sorry for asking in this question instead of starting a new topic and thank you so much in advance.
The wifi is dependent upon several things for strength.
The band is first, and the 2.4 Ghz band is stronger and has a longer range than the 5 Ghz band.
Distance from the AP is a factor. The closer you are the stronger the signal.
Obstructions are a factor. Walls, furniture, appliances, etc. all can interfere with signal strength.
Other wifi APs in the area can interfere. Neighbors using the same wifi channel can be a significant interference and you might need to switch the machine to a different channel than the default to avoid interference. My neighbors only show me a 1 or 2 bar signal, but others have had a full strength signal from the neighbors on the same channel and had to switch channels to get a reliable connection.
All these are things to consider when trying to troubleshoot a bad wifi connection.
I am not in front of my regular pc and with limited bandwidth have difficulties looking it up here, but IIRC it is installed when using the proton VPN service and several users had problems with the format of the .repo file as well as interference with updates otherwise, myself included.
