    NetGear Wireless not working

    Hi, I used the second answer on this page to try to get my netgear wifi adapter working with ubuntu.




    The hardware match was exact, and I used 4.2.2 instead. I am using Ubuntu 20.04. Additional Drivers verifies that I am using the dkms source,
    however I cannot find anyway to display wifi sources to connect to.


    Thanks for any suggestions you might have. I cannot regress to 18.xx, since my graphics drivers are a bit finnicky.

    Let's have a look at the result of these terminal commands;

    Code:
    sudo modprobe 8812au
    sudo dkms status
    dmesg | grep -i rtl
    dmesg | grep 8812
    Thanks.

    Possible typo? Should sudo modrobe 8812au be sudo modprobe 8812au? I've never made a typo - not me - not ever - and my nose is so long it makes Pinochio's nose looks dainty.

    Yikes! Sorry. Edited as needed.

    Now I will wipe a layer of grime off of these old spectacles!
