I bought the wireless adapter to use with a computer without internet access but I can't figure out how to install it with just a USB with the driver on it. I've read a few articles on how to install the driver but they all require me to have internet access and I don't have internet. I'm completely new to Ubuntu. If you can help that would be great. Thanks! Ps: I have the latest version of Ubuntu as of 7-5-16.
Please download this file on some other computer and transfer it to the desktop of the subject computer: https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux/archive/master.zip Right-click it and select 'Extract Here.' Now, in a terminal:
cd ~/Desktop/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux-master make sudo make install sudo modprobe rtl8812au
Now that we have the wireless working correctly, we'll refine this a bit.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install dkms cd ~/Desktop/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux-master sudo cp -R . /usr/src/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux-1.0 sudo dkms add -m rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux -v 1.0 sudo dkms build -m rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux -v 1.0 sudo dkms install -m rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux -v 1.0
This driver can be installed from the official Ubuntu repositories by
sudo apt install rtl8812au-dkms
