If Wifi isn't working, first check if the firmware file can be loaded!

dmesg | grep rtw_pci

In Ubuntu 18.04 the firmware for rtw8822 wifi adapter (ASUS TUF FX505DV Laptop) isn't included in linux-firmware ubuntu deb package! So after a Kernel update it can be necessary to fetch it again and copy it to the lib folder.

git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/firmware/linux-firmware.git
cp ./linux-firmware/rtw88/rtw8822c_wow_fw.bin /lib/firmware/rtw88/


Eduroam does not work with the default wpasupplicant 2.6 version. I have made a backport of wpasupplicant 2.9 from Ubuntu 19.10.

wpasupplicant package 2.9

You need to install that package. Please download from this wiki and unzip it.

sudo apt install libnl-route-3-200
sudo dpkg -i wpasupplicant_2.9-1ubuntu2_amd64.deb

Check that the wpa supplicant service is running with

sudo systemctl status wpa_supplicant.service

In the Wifi Settings for eduroam choose in the “security” settings

  • Security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise
  • Authentication: Tunneled TLS
  • Anonymous identity: eduroam@hs-augsburg.de
  • Check “No CA certificate is required”
  • Inner Authentication: PAP
  • Username: YOURUSERNAME@hs-augsburg.de
  • Password: YOURPASSWORD
