I’m new to Linux and I’m trying to set up everything on my own (with manually created partitions for the first time). The installation process was smooth but I’m struggling to get my wifi adapter to work.
I’m using a Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 Wi-Fi USB Adapter (A7000) which works fine with Windows 10 but is not detected by Ubuntu 20.04
So far I’ve tried following steps mentioned in three different posts and none of them has worked for me so far:
First I tried this
sudo apt-get install git dkms git clone https://github.com/zebulon2/rtl8814au.git sudo dkms add ./rtl8814au sudo dkms build -m rtl8814au -v 4.3.21 sudo dkms install -m rtl8814au -v 4.3.21
Then I tried this
sudo apt install dkms build-essential git git clone https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git cd rtl8812au sudo ./dkms-install.sh reboot
Finally I tried this
git clone https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git cd rtl8812au/ sudo dkms-install.sh
Am I missing something?
Also, idk if it is related in any way or if it matters but when I restart Ubuntu my screen goes completely blank and I have to force shutdown my desktop and boot again.
Looking forward to hearing from you all.
