    *-network DISABLED
    This usually tells us that the hardware switch is set to disable the wireless radio. What does this tell us?
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    Please find the switch and enable the wireless.

    Re: Driver Installation Help Needed (D-Link DWA-182 Wireless USB Adapter)

    Hey guys! after much digging, it turns out our revision D usb dongles have a newer chipset! See comment below that I posted on superuser and askubuntu as well! Hope this helps someone as much as it helped me!

    Special note! I have D-Link AC1200 USB adapter. It's a Revision D tho!!! So I kept digging and digging... turns out, revision C had a different chip, than mine!
    So for those of you digging that can't get yours working,

    OR if you know you have a Realtek RTL8812BU or RTL8822BU chipset, then try the following 1 line at a time in your command prompt. Worked for me and I'm so stoked right now! I had to dig and dig tho, so I thought I would drop this gem here since all my searches for DWA 182 d1 led me here at one point or another. Hope this helps someone.
    Code:
        sudo apt update
        sudo apt install -y git
        git clone https://github.com/EntropicEffect/rtl8822bu.git
        cd rtl8822bu
        make
        sudo make install
        sudo modprobe 88x2bu

    D-Link is still doing that, huh? I haven't really messed with wifi much the last few years but I bought a D-link adapter one time and it worked great right out of the box. Bought a second one a few days later and it didn't work. That's when i learned that D-link ( and I doubt they're alone in this) changes chipsets but doesn't change model numbers. They may append a letter or different version number to the model number to indicate something has changed but that's not reflected on the package, only on the device itself - or not at all.
