I bought the Netgear A6200 USB wireless adapter, and I used WINE to run the installer from the disk that came with the adapter, but it failed part way through. Is there any way to get this to work?
With Ubuntu 14.04 I did the following steps:
sudo apt-get install ndisgtk wget www.mediafire.com/?od9wpw6ccrnyhaa unzip A6200_Linux_drivers.zip sudo ndisgtk
Then when ndisgtk is running, choose the file ending in "ing" that was unzipped. It should be bcmwlhigh5.inf. Once that is installed you can select a wifi network from the Network menu-bar item.
Solved with https://github.com/jurobystricky/Netgear-A6210 - plug your device out before the following commands:
git clone https://github.com/jurobystricky/Netgear-A6210 cd Netgear-A6210 make sudo make install
If your device was plugged in before the above steps, unplug and re-attach, the OS will detect and you should see available Wifi hotspots
The solutions I found, including the ones given here, did not work for me unfortunately. Seems to be some issues with newer kernels.
However, I just found out what works for me. The following github repository contains many non-free and proprietary modules including one for the mt7662 chipset which is used in the Netgear A6200/A6210.
Had to simply clone the repository in /lib/modules/ and modprobe mt76-usb and she now works like a charm. Hope this helps those who also had trouble overlooking this simple option.
