pardon me but I recently installed Ubuntu 18.4 LTS on my Laptop Asus Vivobook Model X540BA-RB94 which I just found out it doesn't have an Ethernet controller. Now I was able to get a wireless USB stick. D-LINK DWA-182 Version C I couldn't find drivers for the onboard wireless so I got wireless stick. . I downloaded the driver from the site for linux for D-LINK DWA-182 version C

My question is how do I install the driver ? It's on a USB stick.

The name of file as a Zip DWA-182_REVC_DRIVER+_4.3.2_LINUX.ZIP

Extracted File Name: RTL8812AU_linux_v4.3.2_11100.20140411

When I access the extracted file and go to the driver I have rtl8812AU_linux_v4.3.2_11100.20140411.tar.gz

Kindly guide me on how to install this ?
