Re: Realtek RTL8723DE, RTL8821CE, RTL8822BE and RTL8822CE chipsets

This is interesting.

First, I must ask... Are either Ralink or Atheros more quickly adopted
into Linux support before Realtek? Are they more stable, etc.? (In my
original post, I noted that I pulled a Realtek based 5ghz dongle from an
extreme end user system, in no small part due to stability/reliability)?

Second, I must note that perhaps you *were* lucky or whatever, as I have
never found anything other than a Realtek chipset on offer. Even if
Atheros or Ralink are more stable, I don't know if I could actually
*find* one. I am well aware that the Chinese company's dongle made in
People's Dongle Factory Thirteen will have folded before the container
ship hits the States, but the Realtek chipset is the key...it is finally
why I know that can work with it.
