Can't connect to Wi-Fi with 0bda:f179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp

Super User Asked by WarGas111 on January 3, 2022

I have a 0bda:f179 RTL8189FTV chip for Wi-Fi. 
It does not work with Ubuntu.

lsusb shows Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0bda:f179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 
I have Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS.

My LAN is working fine, and with that I tried the below:

sudo apt-get install git build-essential
git clone git://
cd rtl8188fu
sudo make installfw
sudo modprobe cfg80211
sudo insmod rtl8188fu.ko
sudo make install

These steps worked for the first time but now I’m not able to connect Wi-Fi. 
Please help if I’m missing anything.

and the problem existed even after reboot. 
So need a solution to solve this and make the problem go away forever.
