First, I have read all of the following, and they get close to helping, but I can't comment requesting more help because I don't have enough beans.

I have gone through the steps of installing the drivers from https://github.com/jurobystricky/Netgear-A6210, but nothing happens. Installed drivers for my adapter but its not working is the most helpful, but confusing. Could someone pick up where they left off in the last comments? They start talking about encryption, but I just need help getting the drivers to work. What info do you need? My brain hurts from trying to clarify and anticipate questions.

I have gone through the steps of installing the drivers from https://github.com/jurobystricky/Netgear-A6210, but nothing happens.

That driver is the only correct driver I know of for your system. It compiles perfectly on my 16.10 system. It creates a driver mt7662u_sta. Does the driver load without error or warning if you load it?

sudo modprobe mt7662u_sta

NOTE: This is not a complete answer; I will edit it as we gather further diagnostics.

  • Here's what the modprobe returns: modprobe: FATAL: Module mt7662u_sta not found in directory /lib/modules/4.4.0-72-generic – Keiva Apr 13 '17 at 17:46
  • I tried re-installing, but when I plug the dongle back in and restart the manager, I get an internal error. Do you want the Journal? – Keiva Apr 13 '17 at 17:55
  • Yes, please. Post it here and give us the link: paste.ubuntu.com – chili555 Apr 13 '17 at 19:02
  • Alright, well, it suddenly works. I didn't change anything on my Ubuntu side, just ran a few things on my Win partition and came back to Ubuntu....No idea what or why, but it's fixed for now. Thanks for your help! :) – Keiva Apr 15 '17 at 3:06
