Just build my own computer and installed ubuntu 16.04. But I can't seem to get my wifi usb adapter working. It's an iptimeA3000UA. Although the packaging said it only works for windows, I thought it would be fine.
Here's my wireless info script as suggested I should add:
$ lsusb gives me:
ID 0bda:b812 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
I downloaded the original windows drivers and used ndiswrapper (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper). I installed it properly and it also gives "hardware present: yes", but still no wifi.
$ ndiswrapper -L gives me:
netrtwlanu : driver installed device (0BDA:B812) present
So on this site I found that mine is 8812bu iguess: https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Realtek_RTL8812BU_USB_Module:
"0bda:b812 Realtek RTL8812BU Wireless 802.11ac 2x2 USB 3.0 NIC"
So I tried to install drivers for RTL8822BU (works for 8812 too I guess) off of github https://github.com/ulli-kroll/rtl8822bu, but still no luck.
I am doing something wrong, or does my device simply not work?
