[SOLVED] TL-WN722N V3 Doesn't Work. PAU09 Dongle Does Work, So: SOLVED

*** FINAL EDIT: None of the AUR drivers (8188eu-aircrack-dkms-git, 8188eu-dkms, 8188eu-dkms-git) allowed me to setup a WiFi access point using the TL-WN722N V3 (Realtek RTL8188EUS) hardware. I'm using the Panda Wireless PAU09 USB WiFi dongle instead because their driver (rt2800usb) is in the mainline kernel, so it should be plug-and-play:

EDIT: I COULDN'T GET THE 8188EU DRIVER TO WORK. I'M USING THE RTL88x2bu CHIPSET INSTEAD.

The chipset:

# lsusb -v
...
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 2357:010c TP-Link TL-WN722N v2/v3 [Realtek RTL8188EUS]
Device Descriptor:
  bLength                18
  bDescriptorType         1
  bcdUSB               2.00
  bDeviceClass            0 
  bDeviceSubClass         0 
  bDeviceProtocol         0 
  bMaxPacketSize0        64
  idVendor           0x2357 TP-Link
  idProduct          0x010c TL-WN722N v2/v3 [Realtek RTL8188EUS]
  bcdDevice            0.00
  iManufacturer           1 Realtek
  iProduct                2 802.11n NIC
...

The DKMS driver:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/8188eu-dkms//

No driver associated with my TL-WN722N WiFi dongle:

# lshw
...
                 *-usb:1 UNCLAIMED
                      description: Generic USB device
                      product: 802.11n NIC
                      vendor: Realtek
...

However, I installed '8188eu-dkms' driver for this very dongle:

$ makepkg -si
...
DKMS: install completed.
:: Running post-transaction hooks...
(1/3) Arming ConditionNeedsUpdate...
(2/3) Install DKMS modules
==> dkms install --no-depmod -m 8188eu -v v4.3.0.8_13968 -k 5.10.50-1-lts
==> dkms install --no-depmod -m 8188eu -v v4.3.0.8_13968 -k 5.12.15-arch1-1
==> depmod 5.12.15-arch1-1
==> depmod 5.10.50-1-lts
(3/3) Cleaning pacman cache...
==> no candidate packages found for pruning

How do I inform the kernel that the dkms driver should be loaded for the WiFi dongle?

You don't. You can  explicitly modprobe it, but in doubt it will do nothing.

Please post your complete dmesg and the output of rfkill.
