    newbie help - WIFI adapter installation

    Hello I built my first computer and installed Ubuntu from a USB. I am trying to use a TP-link AC600 wifi adapter to connect to my wifi, but it is not working. Can anyone help me install it step by step. I am very new at ubuntu and I am learning as I go. Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    - Damien

    Please see the very long and ultimaetly unsuccessful thread here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1083...083342#1083342

    As well, see my posts introducing the proposed solution.

    If you look forward to a long, frustrating and probably unsuccessful next several days and 50-60 replies here, then, by all means, proceed.

    If not, I recommend that you return the device and, after consulting the sticky above, buy a fully supported device that will work out of the box. https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2397914

    I wish I had a better answer.
