    Ubuntu 20-04 on Parallels (M1 Mac) rtl8812au driver issue

    Hi all, new Ubuntu user so apologies for the ignorance. I have the Linksys AC1200 usb wireless adapter which is running the rtl8812au chipset. I am running Ubuntu 20.04 within Parallels VM on a M1 Mac. I have installed and updated Ubuntu. I downloaded the rtl8812au driver package from GitHub, installed it and here is the results of my lsusb commandlsusbBus 003 Device 003: ID 203a:fffb Parallels Virtual Keyboard
    Bus 003 Device 002: ID 203a:fffc Parallels Virtual Mouse
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 005: ID 13b1:0045 Linksys WUSB6300 V2
    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 203a:fffa Parallels Virtual Printer (Brother MFC-L3770CDW series - Fax)
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 203a:fffa Parallels Virtual Printer (Brother MFC-L3770CDW series)
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 203a:fffa Parallels Virtual Printer (Print to PDF (Mac Desktop))
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

    With the adapter plugged in, here are the results of ifconfig:eth0 no wireless extensions.


    lo no wireless extensions.

    Currently, Ubuntu must be sharing the wireless card in my M1 MacBook Pro as I have access. Feel like I'm missing something simple, please advise.

    Thanks,

    Moved to Apple Hardware Users since your host is an Apple product. Further, Parallels is a product for Apple and the hardware abstraction may be quite different from most VM software used with Linux hosts.

    Wrong interface name, in my opinion. If the RTL88xx driver compiled and loaded correctly, then the interface name should be something lile "wlan0".

    Can you please check if the driver gets actually loaded? What's the output of this command:
    Code:
    sudo lsmod
