    Question How-To OFFLINE Installation of Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Adapter

    Hi experts,

    beside Windows i'm tring to install Kali/Linux with a bootable USB stick on my new HP laptop (15s-fq0212ng).
    The install procedure shows me that it can not find a fitting driver for my network device.
    Unfortunately the laptop has no ethernet NIC with (port RJ45), so i can not connect to the internet with a cable.

    There is a wifi card installed to the laptop (Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Adapter [802.11b/g/n/ac (1x1) and Bluetooth? 4.2, combined]).
    In the list i found one similar sounding RTL8821ae, but it did'nt worked with it.

    I've read the threads here and found some awesome guides to install the wifi card:


    But i guess for all guides there is a working internet connection needed to follow the instructions (commands: apt-get, git...).
    I'm pretty new with linux and i have no clue how to install the driver offline due to the install process.
    There was a option to pick the driver from a removable media (in my case only a USB device should work).

    What i could see from the instructions the linux driver should be integrated in the following repositories:

    Unfortunately i don't know anything about github and how to export/compile the driver.

    Many thanks for you help in advance.
