When i do lsusb id codes match Bus 002 Device 009: ID 0bda:b812 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

MCC does only show unknown because there's currently no driver installed / loaded for it.
From what I can tell, you would need the rtl8812bu or rtl88x2bu driver and that is not packaged yet.
You would have to compile it yourself: https://github.com/cilynx/rtl88x2bu

I'd suggest to get a different wireless adapter.

You can try, but I don't think that driver supports your chipset: https://github.com/gordboy/rtl8812au-5. ... usb_intf.c
