The rtwn driver fails to recognize a RTL8821AE WiFi device.

device = 'RTL8821AE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter'

Thats a builtin wifi device in an ASRock Beebox barebone.
It was my understanding from the man page that upgrade to 12.0 should enable that support, but it doesn't.
I just submitted a new report that also contains a patch I wrote for a different device in the same class. It may or may not be of interest to you. bug #239795
Nope, this is one is not yet supported; 12.0 includes support for USB version of this chipset (RTL8821AU), not for PCIe (RTL8821AE).
Same issue here, I am eagerly awaiting for a patch / update which supports the RTL8821AE pcie mini card.
Is this being worked on?
