AC 53 NANO (ASUS) WiFi Dongle Driver Troubles

So I recently dual booted my laptop with windows 10 and Ubuntu 19. A few months ago I sacrificed my network card in exchange for the ability to run an eGPU off my laptop. This resulted in me losing my networking abilities and so to make up for it I decided to drop 50 bucks on this u̶s̶e̶l̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶p̶i̶e̶c̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶g̶a̶r̶b̶a̶g̶e̶ amazing high quality product by aSUS and now lack the drivers to connect to the internet. I have attempted many drivers which mainly go under the name “rtl88xxbu” and most of them ask me to use the make command and dkms. After manually installing dkms and attempting make over and over again I cannot get the driver to install it or at least spew out something like a .ko file. Pls halp
