    Installing AC1200 Dual-Band USB 3.0 Wifi Adapter (not A6210)

    For Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

    Apparently this is not the model A6210 (it doesn't look like it):

    Re: Installing AC1200 Dual-Band USB 3.0 Wifi Adapter (not A6210)

    Hi. Thanks for getting back to me.

    Here's a newer version that I got from the page of that link:

    https://github.com/cilynx/rtl88x2BU_...X20171012-5044

    I am a noob to github and I have no idea where to start. Can you give me a hint how to take it from there?

    We were all noobs at one time, even Linus Torvalds and even old Chili!

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

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential git
    git clone https://github.com/cilynx/rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.2.4.4_25643.20171212_COEX20171012-5044.git
    cd rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.2.4.4_25643.20171212_COEX20171012-5044
    VER=$(cat ./version)
    sudo rsync -rvhP ./ /usr/src/rtl88x2bu-${VER}
    sudo dkms add -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}
    sudo dkms build -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}
    sudo dkms install -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}
    sudo modprobe 88x2bu
    You may safely copy and paste each command, one at a time, from this reply right into the terminal.

    You should be all set.

    Re: Installing AC1200 Dual-Band USB 3.0 Wifi Adapter (not A6210)

    Thanks for the encouragement.

    There may have been some trouble with the last two commands:

    robert@T61n2:~/rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.2.4.4_25643.20171212_COEX2 0171012-5044$ sudo dkms build -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}
    Module rtl88x2bu/5.2.4.4 already built for kernel 4.4.0-128-generic/4
    robert@T61n2:~/rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.2.4.4_25643.20171212_COEX2 0171012-5044$ sudo modprobe 88x2bu
    modprobe: FATAL: Module 88x2bu not found in directory /lib/modules/4.4.0-128-generic

    The adapter is still not presenting me with any networks to connect to.

    Re: Installing AC1200 Dual-Band USB 3.0 Wifi Adapter (not A6210)

    I tried the last two commands with the adapter plugged in:

    Code:
    robert@T61n2:~/rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.2.4.4_25643.20171212_COEX20171012-5044$ sudo dkms install -m rtl88x2bu -v ${VER}
    
    88x2bu:
    Running module version sanity check.
     - Original module
       - No original module exists within this kernel
     - Installation
       - Installing to /lib/modules/4.4.0-128-generic/updates/dkms/
    
    depmod..........
    
    DKMS: install completed.
    robert@T61n2:~/rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.2.4.4_25643.20171212_COEX20171012-5044$ sudo modprobe 88x2bu
    robert@T61n2:~/rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.2.4.4_25643.20171212_COEX20171012-5044$
    Still I am not presented with any networks to connect to.

    For some reason after about 5 minutes I was presented with networks to connect to. Now it works.

    Thanks guys!
