    AC600 usb wifi adapter 17.10 need help -wireless script pastebin inc...

    After many months of reading and following thru the many threads both on and off Ubuntuforums, I submit!

    Here's my wireless script

    http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/MrcNc2KYVG/

    kernel is 4.13.0-32-generic (#35-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 25 09:13:46 UTC 2018)

    With a temporary working internet connection by ethernet, tethering or whatever means possible, open a terminal and do:

    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install git
    git clone https://github.com/gnab/rtl8812au.git
    sudo dkms add ./rtl8812au
    sudo dkms build rtl8812au/4.2.2
    sudo dkms install rtl8812au/4.2.2
    Reboot and tell us if the wireless is working.

    Hello, and thank you for your reply...

    prior to completing without error, this was generated. In case it helps, as I've certainly ran much code over the time I've spent trying to fix this issue.

    8812au:
    Running module version sanity check.
    Error! Module version v4.2.2_7502.20130517 for 8812au.ko
    is not newer than what is already found in kernel 4.13.0-32-generic (v5.1.5_19247.20160830).
    You may override by specifying --force.

    depmod........

    DKMS: install complete

    rebooting now....

    EDIT: NO LOVE

    Jason, Jason, Jason! You have been a busy Ubuntuan, haven't you?

    Let's clean out the basement:

    Code:
    sudo dkms remove rtl8812au/4.3.8.12175.20140902+dfsg --all
    sudo dkms remove 8812au/4.2.2 --all
    sudo dkms remove rtl8812au/5.2.9 --all
    You probably don't need ndiswrapper, either; nobody does:

    Code:
    sudo apt purge ndiswrapper*
    Now check:

    Code:
    sudo dkms status
    If there are any remaining 8812au instances sudo dkms remove -all them as well until status is cleaned.

    Then we'll try again.

    I'll ran the first codes you suggested again and rebooted, with fingers X'd, but no love

    May we see:
    Code:
    sudo dkms status
    modinfo 8812au | grep 9052
    Hint:

    modinfo 8812au | grep 9052

    I know my device id is 0846:9052 but not getting any output with the code.. Is the Diff referring to 8812au and 8811au, perhaps?

    To clear things up for me, could you run

    $ sudo lshw -class network

    and post the output.

    I'm interested in two fields: 1) serial; 2) logical name.

    I've looked through your pastebin and the association of these is not clear to me. Depending on the output, I'd like to try working with wpa_supplicant and its generic wireless driver. If you've already looked down that hole then never mind. Let me know though.

    Let's try harder.
    Code:
    sudo dkms remove 8812au/4.2.2 --all
    sudo dkms remove rtl8812au/4.2.2 --all
    Next, we try to build and install again:
    Code:
    cd ~
    sudo dkms add ./rtl8812au
    sudo dkms build rtl8812au/4.2.2
    sudo dkms install --force rtl8812au/4.2.2
    Next, try:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe 8812au
    modinfo 8812au | grep 9052

    Do USB wireless devices show up in lshw if there is no associated driver that informs the system that this is, indeed a network device?

    Until a driver associates with the hardware, wpa_supplicant will be useless.
