If you include terminal outputs in your post please use the proper output format in your post.

Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block will provide a readable, raw look.

Please install the following driver from the AUR using an AUR helper:

8188fu-kelebek333-dkms-git

thank before...could you please post a step-by-step command ?
because i'm newbie.. :slightly_smiling_face:

Our forum tries to encourage our users to learn how to do things for themselves. I have provided you with the name pf the correct driver you need to install. You simply need to search for how to install a package from the AUR.

Search using your favorite search engines the terms:

"How to use an AUR helper Arch Linux"

"How to install a package from the Arch Linux AUR"

You will feel far more empowered learning how to do for yourself, rather than expecting to be spoon fed every answer,

Good luck on your Arch awareness journey.

Hello,

thanks for your advice.

Here is the error when makepkg -si

==> WARNING: Failed to install built package(s).

From those errors I assume you already installed one of the alternate realtek drivers for this adapter. You must uninstall the driver you installed before. How did you install the driver? Did you install it from source? Once the other driver is uninstalled the install of 8188fu-kelebek333-dkms-git should be able to proceed.

I would use am AUR helper such as paru for installing packages from the AUR. Paru should be installed by default. You simply need to enable paru in the package manager Octopi. This can be enabled in Octopi's options, and then ypu can use the Octopi GUI package manager for installing and uninstalling packages from the AUR. I'm sure you will find the GUI method much easier if you are unfamiliar with the terminal.

Still not showing..

Run:

(ping -c5 google.com 2>&1 >/dev/null) && echo "*** Google IPv4 Connection established via Domain Name Address ***"  ||   echo "*** Google IPv4 Connection unreachable via Domain Name Address***" ;  (ping -c5 google.com 2>&1 >/dev/null) && echo "*** Google IPv4 Connection established via IP Address"  ||   echo "*** Google IPv4 Connection unreachable via IP Address ***";  (ping -c5 2607:f8b0:4009:800::200e 2>&1 >/dev/null) && echo "*** Google IPv6 Connection established via IP Address ***"  ||  echo "*** Google IPv6 network connection unreachable via IP Address ***" 

Post results please.

Dude, you installed a completely different driver than I requested you to install.

Please simplify things for yourself and follow my instructions to use the GUI installation method I already posted.

Enable paru as your default AUR helper in Octopi. Then search in Octopi for 8188fu-kelebek333-dkms-git and install it through octopi.

N.B I'm not the OP btw, just (hopefully) helpful bystander

Did you mean (without the ( & ) as term doesn't like that & I added 3 missing *s) :

ping -c5 google.com 2>&1 >/dev/null && echo "*** Google IPv4 Connection established via Domain Name Address ***"  ||   echo "*** Google IPv4 Connection unreachable via Domain Name Address***" ;  ping -c5 google.com 2>&1 >/dev/null && echo "*** Google IPv4 Connection established via IP Address ***"  ||   echo "*** Google IPv4 Connection unreachable via IP Address ***";  ping -c5 2607:f8b0:4009:800::200e 2>&1 >/dev/null && echo "*** Google IPv6 Connection established via IP Address ***"  ||  echo "*** Google IPv6 network connection unreachable via IP Address ***" 

FWIW (seems it's still flawed):
*** Google IPv4 Connection established via Domain Name Address ***
*** Google IPv4 Connection established via IP Address ***
ping: connect: Network is unreachable
*** Google IPv6 network connection unreachable via IP Address ***
