I'm new to Linux and I'm trying to set up everything on my own (with manually created partitions for the first time). The installation process was smooth but I'm struggling to get my wifi adapter to work.

I'm using a Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 Wi-Fi USB Adapter (A7000) which works fine with Windows 10 but is not detected by Ubuntu 20.04

So far I've tried following steps mentioned in three different posts and none of them has worked for me so far:

  1. First I tried this

    sudo apt-get install git dkms
    git clone https://github.com/zebulon2/rtl8814au.git
    sudo dkms add ./rtl8814au 
    sudo dkms build -m rtl8814au -v 4.3.21
    sudo dkms install -m rtl8814au -v 4.3.21
    
    
  2. Then I tried this

    sudo apt install dkms build-essential git
    git clone https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git
    cd rtl8812au
    sudo ./dkms-install.sh
    reboot
    
    
  3. Finally I tried this

    git clone https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8812au.git
    cd rtl8812au/
    sudo dkms-install.sh
    
    

Am I missing something?

Also, idk if it is related in any way or if it matters but when I restart Ubuntu my screen goes completely blank and I have to force shutdown my desktop and boot again.

Looking forward to hearing from you all.
