Just installed Ubuntu 22.04 and istalled morrownr's 8821au drivers for my usb wireless adapter https://github.com/morrownr/8821au-20210708
The usb device is detected as 8811au but based on the description, the drivers support it just fine.
The problem is that the mac address gets randomly generated after every reboot... which results in any previous working network connection to be useless (will have to manually establish connection and type in password again etc, and creates multiple network profiles perpetually until manually removed via nmcli)
- have tried to set the clone mac address to permanent/preserve.. no use there.
- have tried this USB Wifi Dongle changes MAC Address on every boot - How to prevent this?. no use there.
- have also confirmed this wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no in NetworkManager.conf
Anyone got any idea how to resolve this? I suspect it has something to do with USB adapters only
Just found before i posted Won't automatically reconnect wifi on startup (18.10) the solution works, but i guess if someone has multiple wifi connection on the same machine, it wouldn't work well..
Maybe someone else have a better solution?
