Driver for Realtek 8812BU WLAN 802.11ac USB NIC


New Member
Hello, I have a question regarding the USB WLAN stick in the title. From the Realtek website I got the driver
which is working. The readme says it was last edited sometime in 2017. Windows10 however says it has a better/newer driver (from 2019) whatever that means? So which one should I pick? Why should the Windows driver be better suited than the driver from the manufacturer?

Just keep the one from Realtek. I don't trust windows drivers for the most part. Always get the drivers from the manufacturer.
