It seems to be not working on Arch Linux or Fedora. But it's easy to fix
just disable "Secure boot" option in BIOS, then you've got working module.

P.S. "Boot configuration" in BIOS, then disable "Secure boot".

Good luck

Hi, thanks for your help. It is setting in that way in the bios. I have problems with the wi-fi only. I try Ubuntu and it show me another model (702 or something like that) i return to Fedora and it shows 8723de 😞

Hello comunity,

Have an HP with rtl8723de and i was able to make it work.

only issue is, signal stuck at 50%.

 

Tried:

sudo /bin/sh -c 'echo "options rtl8723de ant_sel=2" >> /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723de.conf'

 Nothing happens. Terminal gets stuck at doing nothing... Ctrl+z does not work to stop the command because nothing is being done. Also cannot understand why "rtl8723de.conf" is not created...

 

Dual boot with Windows 10, using KDE Neon based on 18.04. Kernel 4.18.0.

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi, it was working before the kernel change, on fedora 29, after do some research and the instructions on this main page. The dependencies and libs are important to get fisrt and reboot the machine. After update the kernel to 5.x  I lost the wi-fi again, but was because the system do a clean of old packages. It is working on Fedora 30 beta too.

For Fedora 29 /30

First: Check that your system is updated:

$ sudo dnf update

-- - open terminal and check your model

$ lspci

Examples: Can be  realtek 8723de or 8723be , it depends, copy the info respecting  uppercase If present. "Fedora normally understand low caps better."

1- The headers

(https://fedora.pkgs.org/29/fedora-x86_64/kernel-headers-4.18.16-300.fc29.x86_64.rpm.html)

2.1- Install git dkms

:~$ sudo dnf update && sudo dnf install git dkms

2.2

sudo dnf install linux-headers-generic build-essential git

3- reboot

 

Once git is installed  and rebooted, open terminal on your /Downloads folder and run

$ git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git

when finished:

$ cd rtlwifi_new

then

$ make

then

$ sudo make install

READ carefully Check for errors, if not error dependencies reported how missing everything is ok, if not, just copy the dependency name, and google it, install it and repeat the process.

Remember the hardware model reported in the first step, it needs to be the right model on your machine.

 

--At this point the driver can be assigned. BELOW is the example of the correct code, just CHECK that is the same as yours, and just change in this case the example use rtl8723be .Use your model.

First command:

$ sudo modprobe -r rtl8723be

Second Command:

$ sudo modprobe rtl8723be

SIGNAL:

In my experience there's two channels to choose 1 and 2.

The channel 2 works perfect in the machines that i tested

To set to channel 2, run:

$ sudo su -
echo "options rtl8723be ant_sel=2" > /etc/modprobe.d/50-rtl8723be.conf

 

If channel 2 not work fine for you:

To CHANGE IT:  change sel=2  for sel=1

Reboot the machine, maybe the wireless is already there and working but is better reboot the mahine.

 

Hope helps.

 

Edit update/tip: When 5.x kernel is installed, normally it cleans older headers, that's why if the normal installation send you errors or your wi-adapter gone away, you need to install the older headers.

Was trying to install the driver for RTL8723DE for quite sometime with your instructions but always encountered the below error.

 

 

modprobe: ERROR: Error running install command for rtlwifi
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'rtl8723de': Operation not permitted

 

 

DId some digging around and found that we need the extended branch for this WIFI adaptor.

 

 

git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git
cd rtlwifi_new
git checkout origin/extended -b extended
sudo make install 
sudo modprobe rtl8723de

Now everything works just fine for me, running Fedora 30 with kernel 5.0.13-300.fc30.x86_64.
