I am very new to linux and don't quite understand how to install/update anything via the command line. I am running 64 bit ubuntu 14.04 and have connected to the internet only when using the Ethernet cable. I have researched somewhat on what I need to do to install the WiFi USB adapter for linksys ae6000 but unfortunately I am very lost in the whole process. Do I need to build the driver and if so where do I start?
- Unplug WiFi dongle from USB
Update your sources and upgrade if any:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
Install GNU compiler collection:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install git
git clone https://firstname.lastname@example.org/sanrath/mediatek_mt7610u_sta_driver_linux-64bit.git
cd mediatek_mt7610u_sta_driver_linux-64bit make clean make sudo make install
- After the last command connect your USB WiFi adapter to any USB port.
If you still can't see it:
sudo ifconfig ra0 up sudo service network-manager restart
Then you should have it working and seeing the wireless networks.
