I have one of these and it stopped working again. It seems to be the latest Ubuntu update that got it. Neither of the earlier solutions work so I have to go back to the earlier version of Ubuntu. Are there any recommendations to fix or maybe a recommendation for a wireless adapter for desktop more compatible with updates?

see for earlier experience Setup for OURLINK USB Wireless stopped working

More detail from the non working version. 4.13.0-45 works. I'm also getting a system error but it seem unrelated. See pics.enter image description hereenter image description here

dan@Pavilion:~$ sudo dkms status

[sudo] password for dan:

rtl8812au, 4.2.2, 4.13.0-45-generic, x86_64: installed


dan@Pavilion:~$ uname -r
