I am pulling my hair out. trying to get this Netgear AC600 working I have done everything I can possibly think of. I am running Ubuntu 16.04 lte this is what I have done so far.I went to several forums on the same issue and tried everything suggested in there. It seems like I did load everything it just when you do a sudo modprobe 8812a you get a FATAL error. see below:

Here is the version specification

Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS

I have tried what you suggested Chilli555 to find if it is loaded and it is showing something there here are the results I received when I ran the two commands

First command

$ lsmod|grep rtl
rtl8812au            1351680  0
cfg80211              565248  1 rtl8812au

Here is the second command.

$ dmesg | grep -i rtl

I can see that rtl8812au is loaded.

I do see in the second command that DriverStopped(1), and I am not sure what this is. I can also see where it says Fail to polling. Please advise.

  • Why not install it simply by sudo apt install rtl8812au-dkms? – Pilot6 Feb 14 '17 at 14:35
  • I am not sure this is a duplicate, but it may be. In any case, the answer to this question got my AC600 working great. askubuntu.com/questions/848025/… – Organic Marble Feb 14 '17 at 14:42

Please note the result of your sudo make install:

install -p -m 644 rtl8812au.ko /lib/modules/4.4.0-31-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/

The name of the driver you compiled and installed is rtl8812au; it is not 8812au.

Also note that when you properly loaded the module, it did so without error or warning:

sudo modprobe rtl8812au

You can easily check to see if it is loaded:

lsmod | grep rtl

And you can check the message logs for any informative clues:

dmesg | grep -i rtl

If your device is not working, either you built the wrong driver or something else is wrong.
