Wifi doesn't connect. rtl8852be

Hello Garuda users.

I am having an issue with wifi to work for my laptop. My PC is lenovo ipeapad 5.
CPU: Amd ryzen 7 5825U.
GPU Amd Radeon.
Wifi: Realtek 8852be.

I am new to garuda linux and came here looking for some help.

I have referred to all the help forum and discussions that was previously posted and tried all the solutions but it was all in vein. I looked up:

but I don't have the same driver and even if I looked up my driver in associated Linux driver in Garuda network manager, I do not see any drivers there so, I can't blacklist any of them. So, I thought that I need to install new ones.

I also tried to install driver from Chaotic aur AUR (en) - rtl8852be-dkms-git and then I restarted my PC but there was no success. I used the code:

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rtl8852be-dkms-git

and restarted my PC but in vein.

After that I tried

paru -Syu aur/rtl8852be-dkms-git

and restarted the PC but in vein.

My bluetooth works but no WiFi.

Some help would be appreciated.

Additionally, I am not sure if the wifi driver is rtl8852be or rtw89 for archlinux as I came across this:

this says that I need to do something with my kernel.

If you know how to do it can you please add it in here as this is the new driver and may help someone who needs it later.

If you still have this, I'd try switching to the linux-lts kernel (or reinstall that driver after the lts kernel).
Otherwise, you could also go for:

Ops, I see you have already found this.
Use the dkms one:

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/rtw89-dkms-git.git
cd rtw89-dkms-git
makepkg -sri

Hello, Thanks I was able to get my driver installed.

I did the dkms code that was provided here and restarted the PC and it started working.
