How to install the driver of 802.11ac wifi on Zorin15.2 OS pc?

Could anyone help installing the driver of 802.11ac wifi on Zorin15.2 pc?
Thanks in advance.

Could you please try the following in terminal:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall git dkms build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)

git clone https://github.com/tomaspinho/rtl8821ce

cd rtl8821ce

chmod +x dkms-install.sh

chmod +x dkms-remove.sh

sudo ./dkms-install.sh

Thanks Aravisian for your help. I tried as you write. Seems done successfully. Still my wifi does not appear. But I find that my wifi is rtl8811cu instead of 8821ce which you write. Would you help me to try with 8811cu or 8811au(my another) instead of 8821ce in your 1st reply. Rtl8811cu and 8811au both appears as 802.11ac in Win7 device manager. Thanks in advance, samcore.

can you try:

sudo apt install build-essential -y

mkdir -p ~/build

cd ~/build

sudo apt install git

git clone https://github.com/brektrou/rtl8821CU.git

cd rtl8821CU

make

sudo make install

I am appreciate to your help, Aravisian.
Now, it works well in both Zorin15.2(updated to 15.3) and 12.4.
Just for your reference, rtl8811au seems need additional effort.
Have nice, weekend !
