Asus PCE-AC88 not recognized on startup

Hello there,
I have an Asus PCE-AC88 installed in my system. Whenever I boot up Endeavour OS the device isn’t working properly so I found that I had to type

sudo rmmod wl
sudo modprobe brcmfmac

to make it work. It works great after that but it’s kind of annoying that this happens in the first place.

I don’t know if this is the right place for this report but it is kind of weird so I wanted to see if anyone knows if this is known or anything like that.

Have a great day :slight_smile:

Are you having to do this every time you boot or just the first time? I think you would need to either blacklist broadcom-wl or uninstall the package.

What is your actual network chip?

inxi -Na
  Device-2: Broadcom vendor: ASUSTeK driver: N/A modules: brcmfmac, wl
    pcie: gen: 2 speed: 5 GT/s lanes: 1 port: N/A bus-ID: 04:00.0
    chip-ID: 14e4:43c3 class-ID: 0280

It’s not showing a driver loaded when you ran the command.

Could you tell me how to fix it? I’m relatively new to Linux ^^

may try uninstalling broadcom-wl package could help…

check if you have it:
yay -Qs broadcom

Could be it tries using wl module and fails on it…
