Re: Ac1200 Wi-fi Dongle RTL 8812 drivers for Pi

I compile the 8812bu wifi driver and it supports the wifi with your USB id. Whether it will work as an access point is another matter. I have compiled drivers available to download and install. Run the following commands and it will install a script which will determine the RaspiOS you are using and...
