Is there a way to use the D-link DWA-182 rev A with modern Ubuntu versions? The D-link site only has Linux drivers for rev C and D.

Here's the output oflsusb for the device:

$ lsbusb
Bus 003 Device 009: ID 2001:3101 D-Link Corp. DWA-182 AC1200 DB Wireless Adapter (rev.A1) [Broadcom BCM43526]
  • lsusb should return an alphanumeric code in the format of two sets of four characters separated by a colon. Example: 04a9:176b This number will determine the exact chipset for Rev A. Please edit and include this number.

  • Thanks. It's not clear if this one is supported but you can try installing the broadcom sta dkms driver: sudo apt update and sudo apt-get install broadcom-sta-dkms If everything goes well, reboot and if it's not working immediately, of course, unplug it and plug it back in and if it doesn't automatically come on, run sudo modprobe wl and if it still doesn't work, unplug it and plug it back in and then run sudo modprobe -r b44 b43 b43legacy ssb brcmsmac bcma and then sudo modprobe wl

  • Looks like my kernel isn't supported. $ sudo apt install broadcom-sta-dkms Building initial module for 6.0.6-76060006-generic ERROR (dkms apport): kernel package linux-headers-6.0.6-76060006-generic is not supported Nov 21, 2022 at 7:38
  • Ah well, the device id doesn't show that it's supported anyhow. It looks like this chip is unsupported.
