Need help compiling WIFI adapter for Realtek USB3.0 802.11ac 1200M Adapter

Just got a cheap wifi adapter for 5GHz from AE. Here is the output when plugged in.

[995247.201899] usb 1-1.1: new high-speed USB device number 9 using orion-ehci
[995247.353130] usb 1-1.1: New USB device found, idVendor=0bda, idProduct=b812, bcdDevice= 2.10
[995247.362388] usb 1-1.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[995247.370574] usb 1-1.1: Product: USB3.0 802.11ac 1200M Adapter
[995247.377588] usb 1-1.1: Manufacturer: Realtek
[995247.382927] usb 1-1.1: SerialNumber: 123456

Is there anyway to get the driver installed for debian on dockstar? The dongle comes with some source codes that need to be compiled but I have no idea how to do that. Can someone please help? Thanks.

jrey,

You might not need to compile driver. In Debian try:

modprobe rtl8821ae
And see if dmesg will show anything more about the device.

I have just tried and nothing happened. No dmesg output either.

Try searching for someone that has compiled it for Raspberry Pi 3. I've compiled drivers for armv5te using Raspberry Pi modified code for rtl8812 and rtl8821. It doesn't always work automagically so you may need to make minor mods to the makefile to get it to work.
