Rtl88x2ce driver installed twice wlan0 and wlan1. I wanna remove one

Hello.

Device: Asus TUF A15.

VERSION_ID=“5.0”
VERSION=“5.0 (LTS)”
VERSION_CODENAME=bullseye
Linux 5.14.0-9parrot1-amd64

I previously had problems with my wifi. It used to stop working after every 3-4 mins and started to work again after reconnect to the wifi. This thing keeps repeating.
Then I installed a driver from github
Now it shows wlan0 and wlan1. And net keeps working.
But after every 5 mins it suddenly reaches 0kbps and then after 20 sec it reaches the normal speed. I've created network-restart.service file, and copied the scipt, but don't know how to activate it.

Literally directly bellow your post in the networking section is a very in depth thread on your exact same adapter with a very clear set of instructions on how to get the rtl8822ce driver working.

Sorry, but I'm not going to repeat all the steps and commands i already gave in great detail on that thread over the last 2 weeks all over again.

Follow the uninstall directions from github to remove the driver you installed from github. Uninstall the rtl88x2c driver. Then, follow the directions on the other thread I linked to install the rtl8822ce driver properly.

Welcome to Garuda.

I followed this link to install the driver.
It's in spanish or portugese I don't understand properly.
But when I use
sudo modprobe -r rtl88x2ce
It deactivates my networks. and both the wlan0 and wlan1.
Thus I'm unable to uninstall just one of the drivers

I don't know how I can be much clearer.

Either way I don't really provide support for Debian based OS's, wifi issues in a virtual install, (or the live environment). I provide networking support for Garuda installed to bare metal only.
