I apologize in advance if this is covered in a previous post. However, I've searched and searched and have only found solutions for people with access to an ethernet connection. I am currently running windows 8.1 using my netgear A6100 wireless USB adapter, and unfortunately it is the only access I have to the internet. According to previous posts i've found, such as
I need the 8812au driver in order to get wireless access from my netgear A6100.
this would be great
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential git git clone https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux.git cd ~/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux make sudo make install sudo modprobe 8812au
except I can't install anything via this route because I do not have a temporary ethernet connection.
My question is, is there any way I can download this driver in windows, save it to a storage device, and open it in ubuntu and compile it offline?
