    The RTL8821AE and the RTL8821CE use the same driver. It is in the repository as sudo apt install rtl8821ce-dkms

  • @Rutrus Please start your own new question and include the result of: sudo dkms status as well as: lspci -nnk | grep 0280 -A3

If you are looking for an equivalent repository you should look into rtlwifi-linux/rtlwifi_new

It throws some warning-errors and I couldn't compile it.

NOTE: rtl8821ae driver is supported in linux kernel version 3 and newer, but not working properly in my case.
