I need your help for an issue I meet on my laptop Asus Vivobook S14. I installed Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and erased Windows 10. Everything is working except Wifi.

Here's some useful informations about my wireless card:

louisa@louisa-X411UQ:~$ lspci -knn | grep Network -A3

       configuration: broadcast=yes driver=rtl8xxxu driverversion=4.15.0-23-generic firmware=N/A ip= link=yes multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11

My kernel version :

louisa@louisa-X411UQ:~$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 4.15.0-23-generic (buildd@lgw01-amd64-055) (gcc version 7.3.0 (Ubuntu 7.3.0-16ubuntu3)) #25-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 23 18:02:16 UTC 2018

I got this repository : https://github.com/rtlwifi-linux/rtlwifi-next but when I try the make command I meet this error :

louisa@louisa-X411UQ:~/Documents/wifi/rtlwifi-next$ make

The command sudo modprobe r8822be returns this:

louisa@louisa-X411UQ:~$ sudo modprobe r8822be
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'r8822be': Required key not available

and the dmesg | grep 8822 command returns nothing.

I would be relieved if someone could tell me how to solve this problem.

Thank you everyone

  • Please edit your question to add the result of the terminal commands: sudo modprobe r8822be and also: dmesg | grep 8822
